A few months ago I decided to look into creating an online magazine. This was to be a place where forensics professionals (and aspiring professionals) could contribute and learn together. Sadly the time wasn’t right and life through up a few complications. However I am now ready to pursue this idea more doggedly.
I have decided to create the Forensic 4cast Magazine. This will be a quarterly digital-only magazine that discusses various topics from the fields of digital forensics and incident response. The magazine will be completely free for anyone to read/download on several different platforms including iOS and Android. I also hope to make it a good mix of text and video, with a bit of interactivity thrown in.
My aim is to get the first issue published no later then June but, in order to meet that target, I’m going to need your help. Obviously I can not write all of the content for a magazine by myself so I’m asking for assistance from you. If you have something to say, I want to hear it. At this point I have not ruled out anything (except for the suggestion of a “Lee” photoshopping section). I have a few suggestions but please feel free to add your own:
- Case Studies
- Book Reviews
- Software Reviews
- Hardware Reviews
- Interesting Artifacts
- Hints and Tips
These are just a few of my own suggestions, but you are going to be reading this publication. You tell me what things you’d like to see.
If you’re interested in submitting an article, a calendar event, some news, a suggestion, or something else of interest please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that I’m happy to have either new submissions or maybe something that may have been published elsewhere. As long as you retain the copyright, I’m happy to consider it for the magazine.
Just to give you a taster of how the magazine will look I’ve included some demo screens:
