Social networking investigation, cloud and network security, digital forensics and cyber legal issues head the lecture tracks for the International High Technology Crime Investigation Association (HTCIA)'s annual international conference and expo, being held in in Atlanta next week for its annual three-day conference.

Key lectures involve:

– Image forensics and the use of digital steganography to hide evidence in plain view
– Future crimes involving robotics, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology and other technologies
– Wireless network vulnerabilities
– Social engineering in online communities

A series of hands-on labs will additionally cover cell phone forensics, malware detection, and other topics. Instructors are well-known trainers in the digital forensics and cybercrime investigations community, and lecturers' experience ranges from law enforcement to corporate security to private investigation – from all over the world.

“Our conference offers something for everyone, whether it's the detective investigating Internet crimes against children, or the corporate or private investigator who needs to collect a social networking profile as part of electronic discovery,” said Todd Shipley, HTCIA International President. “We're pleased to continue to offer the same high-quality training and education as in previous years.”

Both HTCIA members and non-members are welcome to attend the conference, which runs from September 20-22 and will be held at the Hyatt Regency downtown. For more information including an agenda, visit
