Cybercriminals don’t respect traditional law enforcement methods and practices. They design their attacks to run undetected and circumvent standard investigative procedures.
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) November 2, 2010
Identity Theft 911 Chief Information Security Officer Ondrej Krehel will be a featured speaker at the Computer Forensics Show on Nov. 1-2, in San Francisco CA, discussing computer forensic investigations, data breaches and new techniques in the war against criminal hackers.
Cybercrime is growing at a rapid pace as cybercriminals employ more sophisticated methods to attack governments and corporations. The Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report found that 285 million records were compromised in the U.S. in 2008. Lost business is the most costly commercial outcome, with an average cost of $204 per compromised customer record, according to the Ponemon Institute.
Krehel’s presentations will focus on types of data breaches, associated costs, and how to build an incident response team of digital forensic examiners, network security professionals and compliance personnel. The Forensics Show aims to present advancements in the IT security marketplace by bringing together specialists in computer security, information technology and accounting with representatives from the military, law enforcement, intelligence and emergency management communities.
“Cybercriminals don’t respect traditional law enforcement methods and practices. They design their attacks to run undetected and circumvent standard investigative procedures,” Krehel said. “It’s the job of security professionals and law enforcement to come up with better practices and more sophisticated computer forensic techniques to stop the bad guys before they do real damage.”
