Training & Meetings

Wednesday, November 6th – Cloud Forensics

Time:  10:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Where: 450-110th Ave NE, Bellevue, WA 98004

Our next WAHTCIA meeting will be on Wednesday, November 6th from 10:00am-12:00pm.  This will be a joint meeting with the USSS Seattle Electronic Crimes Task Force and will be held in the City Council Chambers at Bellevue City Hall,  located at 450-110th Ave NE, Bellevue, WA 98004.

Brandon Leatha will be doing a presentation on Cloud Forensics and in addition to the training, we also believe this will prove to be a valuable networking opportunity as this is the first meeting being jointly organized for both groups.  Here is a brief bio on Brandon with an overview of his presentation:

This talk will cover methods used to identify, preserve, and investigate activity and data stored on common cloud services.  We will explore some of the unique forensic artifacts associated with these services, the methods used to extract and analyze them, and some of the challenges of working with services including iCloud, G-Suite, Office 365, Dropbox and more.

Mr. Leatha is an expert in eDiscovery, data analytics, and computer forensics. With over 19 years of consulting experience in the litigation support industry, Mr. Leatha advises clients throughout the eDiscovery lifecycle, providing guidance on data preservation, evidence collection, data reduction strategies, review methodology, and document production. He has extensive experience performing computer forensic investigations, structured data analytics, and assisting clients in the effective utilization of technology-assisted review (TAR).

Mr. Leatha has been a corporate 30(b)(6) witness, a court-appointed neutral computer forensics examiner, and has testified on numerous electronic discovery and computer forensics issues. He has been an active member of the Sedona Conference Working Group on Electronic Document Retention and Production (WG1) since 2005, and he is an active member of the Computer Technology Investigators Network (CTIN). Mr. Leatha has provided training on electronic discovery and computer forensics for seminars, CLE courses, and industry training events.

Parking may be a challenge due to construction at the venue – imagine that, construction in downtown Bellevue – but I will be able to provide some information on parking options for anyone who is interested.  We will also try to make this available via GoToMeeting for anyone who cannot attend in person but I am hopeful our members can take advantage of the in-person networking opportunity!  Details to follow on the GoToMeeting piece as we get closer to the date.

2020 Training Dates Pending

Locations and speakers to be announced as the information becomes available.
