Yi-Ching Liao defended her thesis

Yi-Ching Liao defended her thesis titled “Process Tracking for Forensic Readiness ” at the Faculty of Computer Science and Media Technology, NTNU in Gjøvik.

Liao has looked at how companies can collect and preserve potential evidence in advance, if they were to experience a cyber attack. Perpetrators need access to system resources to commit cybercrime. Liao has researched opportunities for companies to keep low-level operating system logs. She has found ways that a company can preserve reliable evidence and thus be prepared for a possible digital investigation.

Liao’s supervisors were Professor Hanno Langweg and Professor Katrin Franke, Faculty of Computer Science and Media Technology, NTNU in Gjøvik.
