Introduction of AEGIS Forensics Visualization Toolkit (FVT)

As the keynote speaker of the IOSEC-MSTEC-FINSEC workshop, Prof. Vasillis Prevelakis had the chance to introduce to the audience AEGIS Digital Forensics Service focusing on AEGIS Forensics Visualization Toolkit (FVT).

AEGIS FVT is a complete toolkit that aims to help investigators analyze security and privacy related incidents and react fast in cases of security breaches and threats. Such an advanced environment is presented in an easy to use and understandable way to the end users so as to help them embrace the offered features and understand the benefits of using such an ecosystem by removing the complexity of the underlying technologies. Therefore, the interface elements follow an intuitive and flexible design that can be adjusted to any device and allow the end users manage the monitoring of their industrial infrastructure, inspect the incidents that might occur and view generated statistics and insights. The securely and privacy-preserving stored data, analytics results, and user transactions are presented by advanced visualisations that can foster real-time threat hunting processes (empowered by correlation algorithms for almost real-time mitigation of security incidents) and post-mortem digital forensics investigations (including physical security-like incidents).
