He will duplicate one of his more popular presentations over the years, "Forensics 101", a basic, 12-step look at how forensic drive imaging is carried out. If time permits, after the forensics presentation, John Lupton and Josh Beeman will take a page from the late Paul Harvey and provide "the rest of the story" (as much as possible) from a few of the Information Security Office's "Greatest Hits" of the past 10 years or so.
