March 14th 2017 - MUG Meeting
We meet at 6:30pm on the second Tuesday of each month at the Farmington Community Library.
Computer Forensics at the Oakland County Sheriff's Office Computer Crimes Unit
It's no secret that computers have touched every facet of our lives. Every waking moment we interact with computers. Computers are so ingrained in our lives that they have also been used in committing crimes, or have been present while a crime was committed. As we adopt and adapt to ever-changing technology so too has law enforcement had to adopt and adapt to uncover nefarious and illegal usage of technology. What tools does law enforcement use to do computer forensics on a machine? What are the legal ramifications of crimes committed on a computer? And how should administrators react when their machine has been compromised and used to commit a crime? Detective Liposky is part of the Oakland County Sheriff's Office Computer Crimes Unit who deals with these sorts of questions as part of her job. This will be a great opportunity to learn more about computer forensics, the tools involved, and how to handle machines that are now evidence of a crime.
Det. Liposky CFCE, ACE started at the Oakland County Sheriff's Office in 1986 in corrections as a service agent. She tested and was promoted to Deputy I and Deputy II. She then went to the police academy and was on road patrol in 1990 at various substations until she landed in Rochester Hills, where she became a detective in 1994. In May 2000 she became a detective in the Computer Crimes Unit where she currently works.
Det. Liposky CFCE, ACE has over 1,000 of hours in training from various forensic programs as well as file systems, artifacts of operating systems, web browsers, email clients, etc.. She taught and row coached for IACIS which certifies the unit. She coached for many years and was Regional Manager/North American Administrator/Chairman for the certification program. She taught police officers at EMU as an adjunct professor, and is currently an adjunct professor at OCC teaching police officers about forensics (cell phone and computers). She writes: "I am not well schooled in Linux but we do use a program called Paladin which is a form of Ubuntu."
We respect Det. Liposky's wishes not to be recorded so this meeting will be in-person only. (No streaming / video recording will take place).
