Capturing a Shadow: Digital Forensics Applications with Born-Digital Legacy Material | AMIA

“Digital forensics” is a buzz phrase repeated often in the archival communities today, but what does it mean? How will it apply to the backlog of born digital materials? Through a brief overview of digital forensics frameworks and applications in archival workflows, as well as several case studies, audience members will understand how better to approach complex materials on hard drives, floppies, and optical media. They will come away with an understanding of some of the key steps in a digital forensics workflow, such as write blocking, disk imaging, and intellectual arrangement. By drawing on several contemporary case studies recently made available to researchers, audience members will be better equipped to approach complex works on these carrier mediums, traditionally relegated to the margins of our discipline, which go beyond moving images to include databases, emails, and even software programs.
