Nuix will be the new host of the fifteenth annual Techno Security & Forensic Investigations Conference and is offering complimentary passes for Forensic Focus members (see below for details). The conference will be held at the Myrtle Beach Marriott Resort in Myrtle Beach, SC from June 2–5.
Confirmed keynote speakers are:
• A.T. Smith, Deputy Director of the United States Secret Service
Since joining the United States Secret Service in 1986, Mr. Smith has developed and implemented policy for all Secret Service criminal investigations pertaining to counterfeit currency, financial crimes, and electronic crimes. He has overseen multiple investigative divisions and more than 160 domestic and international offices.• Kevin Mandia, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Mandiant
Kevin began his career in the United States Air Force. He served as a computer security officer in the 7th Communications Group at the Pentagon, and later as a Special Agent in the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI), where he worked as a cybercrime investigator. Kevin has also co-authored two books on responding to security breaches.
In addition to the traditional digital investigations and mobile forensics tracks, in 2013 the conference will offer content aimed at the growing community of corporate investigators.
“We are thrilled to host the Techno Security and Forensic Investigations Conference in 2013,” said Dr James Kent, Nuix’s global head of investigations. “With ever-increasing volumes of data held on myriad devices, investigators must be able to search for electronic evidence at any scale, wherever it is located. This is what Nuix was built for.”
Nuix’s abilities to address multiple evidence sources at once and automatically extract intelligence such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, email and websites that have been visited have seen it become a superior alternative to legacy data forensics applications.
Nuix 4.2, released in January 2013, gives investigators the ability to examine Windows registry files; full and partial deleted files, slack space and alternate data streams; Cellebrite and Micro Systemation XRY mobile device images ; and Android device call, voicemail and message databases. Investigators can also delve into the binary structure of files using the built-in hex viewer.
