Who Watches the Smart Watches?

Wearable technology use has accelerated over the past 18 months, to the point of where even most fitness devices now have notification capabilities to allow users to use the device as an extension of their mobile phone. This talk will explore two mobile operating system-independent devices: a Pebble Time and Microsoft Band 2. The talk will highlight functionality and the data that is stored on the device, as well as data stored on the mobile phone with which the wearable technology is associated.

He has approximately 15 years of experience in the cyber security field, with 10 of those years focusing on digital forensics/incident response (DFIR), both in the United States Air Force and the private sector. His initial exposure to the DFIR field occurred during a 6 month deployment to Mosul, Iraq in 2004-2005, when he served on a team that provided mobile device analytic information in support of tactical military operations. During his tenure in the Air Force, he has worked with numerous DoD entities and been invited to speak and share information at several intelligence community events. After his military service ended he entered the private sector and has worked (globally) on a wide range of cases. His favorite aspect of this DFIR field is that it is always changing and evolving; and every case has unique problems, questions, and solutions.
