SANS Community Night Talk – Time Lords – Understanding Time to Master Forensic Analysis (19 September 2018)

In this edition of SANS Community Night scheduled on 19 September 2018 in Singapore, SANS Certified Instructor Nick Klein will give a talk titled “Time Lords – Understanding Time to Master Forensic Analysis”. He will provide a clear understanding of Windows timestamp fundamentals, then explore some of the curious and unexpected ways that timestamps can be affected by the file system, common user actions, everyday applications and even time manipulation. He will also walk through some of the most valuable places for retrieving timestamps from across the Windows operating system – and demonstrate tools and methods to interpret them for maximum forensic value.
