Why Memory Analysis is Important
Enterprises and police agencies are both looking to use memory analysis to respond to increases in the volume and complexity of cyber incidents. For enterprises, memory analysis can be the key to identifying the compromised devices in a malware or ransomware attack.
In a digital investigation, analysts will often examine memory first because it can reveal the infection vectors and post-compromise activities of cyber incidents. It can also help analysts identify modern malware variants. Memory analysis can provide the same benefits to police agencies in their cybercrime investigations and give them another avenue to recover evidence from devices involved in cyber enabled crimes such as homicides, human trafficking, terrorism and organized crime.
