National Cyber Crime Conference in Norwood, Massachusetts Remains Scheduled

Despite the recent tragedy in Boston, the second annual National Cyber Crime Conference will still be held in Norwood, MA next week.  The conference is hosted by Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley in partnership with Microsoft, the National Attorneys General Training and Research Institute, the National White Collar Crime Center and SEARCH.    

On Tuesday April 16, 2013 MA Attorney General Martha Coakley said this on the attacks at the Boston Marathon: “This is an unconscionable tragedy and our thoughts and prayers go out to all victims and their families.  Thank you to all first responders for their brave efforts to help the injured and secure the area. All local, state and federal law enforcement partners stand in solidarity in our resolve to find those responsible for this horrific attack and bring them to justice.”

About the Conference

The Attorney General invites the law enforcement community to join us for low-cost training in digital forensics and cyber crime.  Hear some of the most well-recognized prosecutors, investigators, and digital forensic experts from across the country discuss the latest and most important legal and technical topics in the field. The conference will feature three tracks of instruction: a track for prosecutors, a track for investigators and a track for digital evidence forensic examiners.  Each track will have multiple breakout sessions featuring instruction from nationally recognized experts in the field of cyber crime.  Participants will be provided with an opportunity to receive hands-on instruction.”  (conference website)

BitSec Global Forensics™ Sr. VP of Technology Mike Webber, will be leading two lab sessions titled “Google for Investigators”.   Google for Investigators was designed by BitSec  to enable investigators to leverage the advanced search features of Google to find relevant data in a more timely and efficient fashion.    Participants will learn to design meaningful search terms and target specific regions, sites, time frames, and data stores using advanced operators and filters.  As was the case in 2012, both lab sessions reached capacity quickly during the registration process.

According to Webber, “Nearly every crime today has the potential for digital evidence to play a role.   For law enforcement officers to stay abreast of technology and to be able to solve crime, they must regularly attend cyber crime training.  The Massachusetts Office of the Attorney General has once again helped to fulfill this need by providing an opportunity for law enforcement officers across the country to receive cutting-edge training at a nominal costLast years conference was one of the most well organized conferences we’ve attended and featured speakers who are global leaders in the field of digital forensics.  We are thrilled to once again be a part of this amazing event and to support not only the Massachusetts Office of the Attorney General and regional law enforcement, but law enforcement across the United States.

BitSec will host a booth in the vendor area and has sponsored the conference by providing USB thumb drives for each participant.  Attendees can visit designated workstations to download copies of conference materials and presentations to the USB drive.  Download the program agenda HERE.
