Welcome to CyberSpeak, your computer forensics, computer security, and computer crime podcast.  I am Ovie Carroll, and I am Bret Padres, today is November 14st 2009, and we have a great show for you today.  We have a short show for you this week.  Ovie's on vacation but we are trying not to miss another week so we thought we would bring you a shorter show rather than missing a week.

That's right, as we speak I am touring around in the mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee.  me the wife and the dog

Jim - What affect do you see the buzz word "Cloud Computing" having on computer forensics.
Incident Response

identify and issue preservation order


The Texas Department of Public Safety plans to reduce its "unacceptable" backlog of computer examinations that are crucial in child pornography investigations, agency Director Steven C. McCraw announced Wednesday.  Currently, 45 examinations are pending at the crime lab, and about half of those involve possible child pornography, according to DPS.
Each examination takes 30 days to several months, depending on the caseâs complexity.

The agency has not set goals on how quickly it hopes to complete examinations because each is different, said Tom Vinger, a DPS spokesman.

Some agencies are actually outsourcing some of their forensic work which i think can be a good thing.
