CybHER® is an organization that provides young girls with cybersecurity events and resources that are made to empower, motivate, educate, and change the perception of girls and women in cybersecurity.
Oxygen Forensics Director of Training, Amanda Mahan, will be speaking at a CyberHER® event, GenCyber Girls in CybHER® Security Camp, Tuesday, June 20th and Wednesday, June 21st.
Amanda will be hosting sessions with 115 young girls from over 15 states across the U.S. with an interest in cybersecurity about how fascinating and important digital forensics is in today’s digital age.
Amanda will be covering Snapchat Forensics and Cellphone Forensics with an emphasis on the fact that nothing is ever fully deleted and all devices can leave a trail of information that can later be used in a digital investigation.
“There are misconceptions and repercussions about posting things on social media, such as that Snapchat messages are deleted forever after 24 hours. That is not correct,” said Kanthi Narukonda, Director of CybHER®.
We are excited to share our expertise with such a young and impressionable audience who could be the future of digital forensic specialists.
“I am beyond excited to introduce familiar ideas in different ways to young women about the forensic world by replacing fear tactics with knowledge. My goal is to spark interest and perhaps grow new forensic specialists that the world needs so much. This is how we can really make a difference!” said Amanda Mahan.
Amanda Mahan was later interviewed by Madison Daily Leader, a local Madison newspaper. View article.
