HTCIA is the High Technology Crime Investigation Association which runs an annual conference on high-tech crime forensics investigation techniques. This year’s event takes place on 2-4 December 2013 in Hong Kong.
Civil litigators tend to ignore this stuff, somehow thinking that their cases do not require digital investigations beyond email, and overlooking the fact that much evidence and narrative may be derived from the same tools and expertise as are used by crime investigators. I wrote about one aspect of this, photograph EXIF information, in my article of last week called Using EXIF GPS information from a camera in eDiscovery / eDisclosure.
This year’s HTCIA Asia-Pacific Training Conference agenda includes contributions from Richard Kershaw of FTI Technology, Paul Taylor of Consilio and Frank Butler of Guidance Software. Nuix is running a session called Nuix Investigation Fundamentals, and Guidance Software has a workshop at which examples of the EnCase product suite are explained. Sponsors include Nuix, FTI Technology and Epiq Systems.
