Cloud Computing offers an opportunity to increase capability with a promise of decreasing overall IT costs. The Cloud is also increasingly coupled with the ubiquity of mobile computing and its advantages. Both are now a part of everyday life - Amazon, Google, Dropbox, iTunes Cloud, RealAudio Cloud, etc. However the "Benefits" of the Cloud cause us to forfeit aspects of control, visibility, and tracking data origin, source, and attribution. Traditional Computer Forensics requires physical access to systems for processes such as disk imaging something not readily available when working in the Cloud. Further the physical location of data can be very difficult to determine in a private cloud and a near impossible task in a public cloud where the data may not even reside in the same country as the user. This talk discusses the challenges and opportunities within the emerging areas of cloud and mobile forensics.
