Registration Opens for Annual High Tech Crimes Training Conference

Investigators of high-tech crimes in both law enforcement and corporate environments are invited to register for the International High Tech Crimes Investigation Association (HTCIA)’s annual conference, this year being held in Atlanta (GA) from September 20-22, 2010…Both members and non-members will hear from a variety of respected professionals, including three keynote speakers:

Steve Cooley, Los Angeles County District Attorney directs state prosecutions in the nation’s most populous county. He was recently quoted in the Wall Street Journal as noting “practically every crime, from drug dealing to murder, involves digital evidence.”

Michael Spohn is a Senior Security Consultant at Foundstone, where he provides incident response (IR) and digital forensic services. Previously a law enforcement investigator, he has deep expertise in secure network design, system integration, forensic investigations, software development methodologies, and large scale database implementations.

Patrick Gray, Senior Security Strategist at Cisco Systems, has—as a result of his career with the FBI and the X-Force Internet Threat Intelligence Center—first-hand knowledge of the hacking community, its aims and methodologies in attacks on government, ecommerce, energy and financial entities.

Extensive training will also be available during these three days. This will include seven hands-on computer labs. AccessData, a conference Gold Sponsor, will be providing one of these hands-on labs. Subjects of these and two “bring your own laptop” labs, along with a “Pizza Night” lab, will be announced in coming weeks.

“HTCIA International Training Conferences and Expo have historically been the best training value dollar event for those really concerned about high tech investigations,” said Todd Shipley, HTCIA President. “This year will be no exception as we strive to continue the high quality networking and training experiences that have come to be recognized as an HTCIA tradition.”

High tech crime investigation professionals who wish to present papers can submit proposals until April 30, 2010.

The discussion covers how MSAB partners with law enforcement to develop custom workflows for mobile device acquisitions that facilitate ISO compliance.
