Perhaps you’re familiar with the construction of hard disks and SSDs. However, it may not have occurred to you that the radical differences between a spinning hard disk and the stacks of Flash memories in SSDs would present a problem for forensics experts. At least, it did not occur to me. That’s why I found this article by Mike Sheward on the Infosec Resources site interesting enough to blog it here in the Denali Memory Report. Sheward is a network security engineer for a software-as-a-service provider based in Seattle and a researcher at the InfoSec Institute. He’s also worked for the British government. You might want to take a look.
