How will be the future of Digital Forensics? 
…mobile, Drones and ICS, SCADA, to be continued…

Since the origin the science of Digital Forensics was used just to solve computer crimes.
Starting from 10 years ago, Digital Forensics helping not just Law Enforcement to solve a lot of cases not directly connected to computer crimes.
Every day there are a lot of new technologies that come into our market from Mobile Devices to Drones.
This talk will details field experieces from real cases where different passive, active and offensive forensics approaches have been successfully identified and used. It will be “no common” investigations! A lot of cyber attacks today are targeted not just to the Company Manager, but the most are targeted to the Critical Infrastructures. It’s just a different type of attack and a lot of time they are “state sponsored attack”.
We will be starting to explain ICS/SCADA Systems and how to run a Digital Forensics Analysis (ICS/SCADA Forensics) on this “Environment” Systems.
