Dear Readers,

We present you with a new open issue of eForensics Magazine. We are really proud of the material we managed to gather in this publication and we hope you will enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed putting it together for you.

For starters, we would like to introduce you to Bruce Khavar, the  the CEO and President of Cyber Advanced Technology. He in turn would like to talk to you about his new, game-changing project.

Then we will take a long and deep dive into more technical articles. First up we have Monnappa K A with his article on malicious Excel spreadsheet, then Israel Torres with a basic malware analysis tutorial, a preview from Wolf Halton’s upcoming book - a chapter on  phishing in Windows using Social Engineering Toolkit and Backdoor Factory on Kali Linux 2.0, and finally we top it off with a guide to e-mail forensics written by Sundar Narayan.

Next, for something slightly different, we present two articles: in the first one, Brian Wilson will tell you why exactly companies should consider certifying all their employees in cybersecurity; then Matthew Cook will take you to the world of video game fraud.

We close the magazine with a review by Bob Monroe and two of our interviews - some of you may have even seen them on our blog. If you haven’t now’s your chance to read them - but check out our blog anyway, we have plenty more waiting for you there!

We would also love it if you joined us on social media - we’re on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. Our LinkedIn group recently hit a 1,000 members and we want to take this opportunity to thank you all again for your continuous support for the Magazine. We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you!

Enjoy your reading,
eForensics Magazine

The Rationale for Company-wide Cybersecurity Certification
by Brian Wilson, Senior Instructional Designer at Logical Operations

When it comes to costly security breaches, the most frequent cause is not technology, but people. While rapid changes in technology have contributed to the challenges of cybersecurity, the most critical flaws in your organization’s security may be surprisingly low tech — such as someone leaving a door unlocked, leaving sensitive information posted on a sticky note, naively forwarding sensitive information, or clicking a malicious link in an email message. This article discusses the reasons that speak for introducing a company-wide cybersecurity certification.
