Introduction to DFIR

One of my favorite things is talking to students and people new to the security field. It feels like yesterday I was wandering around the first Shmoocon as a student in awe of the people I met and the work they were doing. Now I’m 10 years into my career and have a whole different perspective (though still in awe with those folks).

Minimal Packing for Maximum Travel

I started writing this at the end of March right after two trips in a row. I’ve since done another type of packing, moved, and now I’m finally catching up, so forgive some out of date thoughts. I’ve basically travelled non stop for the last two weeks, home only for last weekend. Back to back travel of fairly similar lengths makes it easy to compare, experiment, and plan a bit better.
