AISA NSW Branch Event | 26 October 2023

AISA Branch Meeting
Hosted by the AISA NSW Branch, please join us for a face-to-face meeting and networking opportunity with two interactive presentations and discussions.


Presentation One Title:
 Using digital forensics to investigate Windows artifacts and tracking user activity

Utilizing digital forensics for investigating Windows artifacts provides a powerful means to track and analyse user activity. By examining a range of relevant data left behind on the Windows operating system, such as event logs, registry activity and file artifacts, investigators can uncover valuable insights into recent activity, applications used, and patterns of behaviour. This process aids in reconstructing events and piecing together a comprehensive understanding of user actions within the Windows environment.


David Wren holds a computer science degree from UNSW and has 35 years of experience in telecommunications, software development and computer security. He is currently the CEO & owner of the Sydney based company, PassMark Software Pty Ltd, who develop diagnostic and computer forensics solutions.

Rachel Vosila works across marketing and partnership development as PassMark Software. Following a bachelor’s degree in design from the University of New South Wales, Rachel has worked in a range of marketing roles in the IT industry before joining PassMark in 2019.  During her time in this role, Rachel has enjoyed generating content that makes digital forensic knowledge and forensic processes accessible to the broad range of users and industries who engage with OSForensics

Presentation Two Title: Taking a risk-based approach to vulnerability management

Managing a Security team is a challenging endeavour, especially given the demands of business leadership has on you to report on defensible cyber resilience. It’s of no help that security practitioners are drowning in constantly growing and contextless vulnerabilities. It takes a village to make for meaningful vulnerability management (VM), but security teams only have a handful of analysts at best to do so. Let me share with you how your peers are working to tackle this problem.

Here’s what you can expect from the session:
 • Uncover the hurdles in everyday VM operations
 • Learn what makes for a strong Risk-Based VM Program
 • Discover the benefits of Continuous Threat Exposure Management 
 • Improve the Life of a VM Analyst With Several Best Practices 
 • Confidently report on your vulnerability remediation and threat management status
