September 27th, 2018 Meeting Info

Our next meeting will be Thursday, September 27th at noon. The location is Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital’s Auxiliary Conference Room. NMH’s address is 1204 N. Mound Street, Nacogdoches. Each person should bring $8.00 cash to have access to the buffet. Lunch will be served in our meeting room. You will not have to go through the hospital cafeteria line. You get a salad, lunch, dessert and a drink. I need a headcount, so please RSVP. This month we will hear from members on a variety of topics. SFA cyber security professor, Dae Glendowne will have information on the intro level digital forensics workshop he’s putting for DETSEC members.

“Digital forensics is the acquisition, authentication, and analysis of data for the purpose of reconstructing events that occurred on a digital device for use in a court of law. In this workshop, we'll focus on the technical aspects of digital forensics as we provide an overview of the digital forensics process. Students will walk through acquiring the data into standard formats, authenticating the data to ensure it has not changed, and finally analyzing the data to extract artifacts and reconstruct what occurred.”

In addition, we are going to be talk about gas pump skimmers. We are hearing about them in the news. Bad guys are opening the gas pumps with a universal key or by picking the locks then inserting a device in the pump. We will cover who these gangs are, the design and function of skimmers and finally wrap up with an easy to build Skimmer Scanner project I made from a Raspberry Pi3 computer. Using this scanner I can drive by a gas station and tell if it is “infected.”

Don’t forget to RSVP and bring $8 cash for food. We are an open group so feel free to invite others.
