Daily Blog #276: Ever wanted to write a DFIR book?

Hello Reader,
         It's time to continue my posts about the talks I'll be giving at conferences this year. This time I want to talk about the DFIR author panel that Suzanne Widup from Verizon has setup at CEIC and the SANS DFIR Summit. The panel at CIEC this year will have in alphabetical order:

  • Warren Kruse, author of Computer Forensics: Incident Response Essentials
  • Joseph Shaw, author of Unified Communications Forensics: Anatomy of Common UC Attacks
  • Suzanne Widdup, author of Computer Forensics and Digital Investigation with EnCase Forensic v7
  • and myself
We will be doing the panel twice  once Tuesday, May 20th from 5:00pm – 6:00pm (Exhibit Hall Happy Hour) and again Wednesday, May 21st from 12:15pm – 1:15pm (Lunch in the Exhibit Hall). So you'll have two chances to come talk to us and ask questions!

Ask questions about what you ask? Well topics like:
  • How we decided to write a book
  • How we found a publisher
  • What it takes to write a book
  • What to expect from writing a book
  • Was it worth it?
  • How you can get a book deal 
It should be a good panel with a variety of publishers and experiences represented and available to answer your questions. I hope to see you there!
