Cybercrime Studies: File Carving for Forensics Recovery

There is an upcoming talk at John Jay College that should be interesting:

File Carving for Forensics Recovery

Nasir Memon

Professor of Computer Science
Director of the Information Systems and Internet Security (ISIS) Lab
Polytechnic Institute of New York University

As the number of digital devices in use continues to increase, there has also been an increase in the seizure and analysis of digital data for forensic purposes. One of the areas of high forensic interest is in the recovery of digital data from devices. In cases where the file system information for a digital device is missing or corrupt, newer data recovery techniques involving a process known as file carving are used to recover the data. This talk describes the need for and evolution of file carving, and presents the various technologies that have been used to improve file carving recovery, including our own Smart Carving techniques.

Date: Tuesday, February 9, 2010
Time: Reception – 1:45pm, Lecture – 2:00 pm
Location: Room 630T, Haaren Hall
899 Tenth Avenue, New York City 10019

RSVP: Nicole Daniels at 212-237-8920 or email
