About the session:
Live forensics is used to collect system information before the infected system is powered down. All random access memory (RAM) is volatile storage. Volatile storage will only maintain its data while the device is powered on. This is one reason why preserving volatile data is important for malware analysis. Once the computer is powered off the volatile information will be lost, along with all the important information. Volatile data might contain keys to decrypt information, the investigator can also extract the binaries to perform static or dynamic analysis.
