Data As Evidence: Analysis of Logs for Litigation

At FloCon 2019, experts from industry, government, and academia discuss the latest developments in large-scale security analytics.

Interhack founder C. Matthew Curtin will present Data as Evidence: Analysis of Logs for Litigation at FloCon 2019 in New Orleans, LA on January 9, 2019.

The presentation draws from Interhack's computer expert practice going back as far as 2001 showing how analytics applied to “big data” have been used to answer questions that arise in legal adjudication, where stakes are high, standards are high, and there's no room for guesswork.

In his presentation, Matt discusses three case studies where he led a team that analyzed system data, developed findings from the data that were relevant to the nature, scope, and severity of the alleged damage, and presented those results. He focuses on the legal processes at work in securing data for analysis, methods for assessing and making use of data, the legal standards for offering expert opinion, and techniques for effectively presenting findings to legal professionals and lay jurors.

He concludes by outlining principles for data analysis that help practitioners to support operational needs and to create the foundation to protect the organization in subsequent events.
