The first post in this series talked about how we're expanding on the core competency of the EnCase community who converge on CEIC each year. The second post drilled down into the plethora and diversity of digital artifacts and showcased sessions designed to address these exploding challenges. In this final post, we present the marquee of acclaimed industry experts who will be on hand to teach new technologies and tools and share hard-earned insight from decades of experience in digital investigations.
Diverse Expertise Brings Extra Value to CEIC 2015
A key benefit of CEIC is the diversity in topics that cover a wide range of technologies and tools that are critical to investigations. The tracks on digital forensics do not espouse a particular agenda, but acknowledge that all technologies and investigative techniques must ultimately be woven together.
Our speaker portfolio is also diverse and plays out as the “who’s who” in the digital forensics industry. Here’s a snippet of the best and brightest who have been secured as presenters, trainers, and panelists at CEIC 2015:
