Your webinar is now available.
Watch this on-demand webinar where our BlackBag experts cover what can be extracted from the macOS keychain, what you can do to get the most out of it, and how Apple secures your passwords and other secrets. We take a closer look at Spotlight artifacts beyond the System Level file metadata store that users are most familiar with. Come along as we explore user-specific metadata stores, user search history, and iOS metadata stores. We will walk through what Mac’s Spotlight artifacts can reveal about specific user actions.
Finally, in response to all your feedback, we will share new adjustments BlackBag has made to allow Digital Collector customers to complete remote targeted collection from Mac devices without needing to send the device to the remote machine.
