What are memory forensics?

In this investigative episode of the Exploring Information Security podcast, Kyle Andrus joins me to discuss memory forensics.

Kyle (@chaoticflaws) is someone I've started to get to know this year. He's an organizer of Converge and BSides Detroit. He's also an organizer for MiSec. Talking with him I noticed a strong interest in memory forensics. This allowed us to geek out a bit on the topic considering I have experience with performing memory forensics as part of incident response. It was one of the more interesting things I've done in security.

In this episode we discuss:

  • How Kyle got into memory forensics
  • What tools are available to perform memory forensics
  • Why memory forensics are useful to an organization
  • What skills are needed for memory forensics
