Like it or not, every computer is a potential crime scene
Greenwich, CT (PRWEB) August 31, 2009
Imagine the ability to view anything that ever appeared on almost any computer.
The computer forensics show is the "don't miss" event of the year for all Llitigation, Accounting and IT Professionals.
"Like it or not, every computer is a potential crime scene," says Frank Manley, Show Director of The Computer Forensics Show, which will take over the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA on October 5 & 6, 2009. The special two-day event will include exhibits of the latest developments in the IT security marketplace, as well as a full conference schedule of top-flight guest speakers, discussion groups and training sessions. "Computer forensics is definitely one of the fastest growing segments of the industry," says Manley.
Computer forensics pertains to the legal evidence found on computers and digital storage media (it was a computer forensics expert who discovered that Bernie Madoff never made a trade). Increasingly, computers are being used as evidence in a wide spectrum of cases, from the millions of instances of identity and credit theft to employee and intra-company disputes. Computer forensics has become vitally important to IT security professionals, lawyers and accountants, and even the average consumer surfing the Internet -- in short, to anyone who depends on the safe and efficient storage and retrieval of data.
Today's business environment is undeniably complex, due to strict regulatory and compliance requirements, closer scrutiny and the pervasive threat of litigation. IT security is vital to any individual, company or law practice dealing with sensitive information created and stored digitally. For some companies, it is not a question if one of their computers will be used as evidence in a legal matter; it is a question of when. A sophisticated computer forensics strategy can literally save a company millions in litigations costs and, in some instances, their hard-earned reputation.
Every day brings changes to the IT security marketplace, and the Computer Forensics Show is specifically geared to showcasing the latest technological advances and trends. The show will feature exhibits as well as a comprehensive and engaging conference program with the involvement of leading edge companies: Kroll Ontrack Inc., McAfee Corporation, SanDisk Corporation, Symantec Corporation, Deloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP, Clearwell Systems Inc., HB Gary Inc., Guidance Software Inc. and EMC Corporation.
Conference events will focus in-depth on topics of interest to legal, risk management, and accounting professionals, as well as the IT sector, and feature five conference tracks including two legal tracks (emerging technologies in litigation and practice issues, records management, reporting and privacy, etc.); forensic accounting, which is the number one growth field in accounting; and two IT security tracks, which will provide practical advice for companies just beginning to encounter security issues to those with more advanced concerns.
