Digital Forensics for National Security Symposium



December 10-11, 2019 | Mary M. Gates Learning Center, Alexandria, VA

 

DSI’s Digital Forensics for National Security Symposium will bring together members of the Federal Government Agencies, DoD, US Military Services, Academia, & Industry in a ‘town-hall’ type forum to discuss how Digital Forensics, sometimes called ‘Computer Forensics’, is advancing the application of scientific investigation into digital crimes, attacks, and intrusions at the national, state, and local levels. This Symposium will also detail how current innovations in mobile and network forensic toolkits have led to increased success in defending the cyber space, as well as enhanced the ability to recover & preserve data.

 

Topics to be Covered:

  • Using digital forensics partnerships between the military and federal govt. to improve cyber defense
  • Ensuring the reliability of computer forensic tools
  • Utilizing digital forensics for large-scale networks
  • Improving forensic tool capabilities to ensure the integrity and retrieval of data
  • Utilizing Digital Forensics to Ensure the Integrity of Investigative Data
  • Fielding the most advanced digital forensics tools to help Soldiers see the cyber battlefield & the weapons being deployed there
  • Designing ways to accelerate digital forensics analysis that significantly reduces the time necessary to process digital evidence
  • Guiding the efficient and effective use of computer technology to investigate crimes at all levels of government
  • Devising an all-in-one toolkit to combat cyber crimes
  • Supporting national investigations into Internet criminal activities with state-of-the-art cyber investigative methods and forensic data processing techniques
  • Enhancing digital forensic techniques to enhance SOF ability to recover key evidence from terrorist electronic devices
  • Delivering superior digital forensics and multimedia (D/MM) lab services, cyber technical training to the Defense Industrial Base

 

Why You Should Attend This Year's Symposium


The Digital Forensics Market is expected to increase to 6.95 billion dollars in the US by the year 2025. DSI’s Digital Forensics for National Security Symposium will bring together members of the Federal Government Agencies, DoD, US Military Services, Academia, & Industry in a ‘town-hall’ type forum to discuss how Digital Forensics, sometimes called ‘Computer Forensics’, is advancing the application of scientific investigation into digital crimes, attacks, and intrusions at the national, state, and local levels. This effort can be described as the identifying, maintaining, and analyzing of digital evidence in an effort to identify the source of a cyber breach and other actionable intelligence. This Symposium will detail how current innovations in mobile and network forensic toolkits have led to increased success in defending the cyber space, as well as enhanced the ability to recover & preserve data.

The sophisticated methods that cyber criminals/terrorists have used to commit digital crimes continue to evolve, due to the advent of modern computing & the ever-changing technological landscape. This Symposium will further explain how the advancements and innovations made in the field of digital forensics in the ‘90s &’00s have resulted in increased capabilities of network forensic tools today. Attendees at this event will have the chance to hear briefs from senior level delegates that provide a deep dive into current/future collaborative efforts to develop & field new ways to combat digital attacks and ultimately, improve the offensive cyber capabilities of federal law enforcement & our nation’s Warfighters. Lastly, this agenda will examine new digital forensic toolkits, such as ‘FileTSAR’, which allow investigators to capture data flows and allows investigators to selectively reconstruct multiple types of data, including documents, images, email, VoIP conversations and messaging on large-scale computer networks.

 

At Our Symposium You Will Have the Ability to:

 

Gain Education & Insight: Walk away with knowledge gained from our senior level speakers on some of the complex challenges facing our Digital Forensics Community. 

Build Partnerships: The agenda is designed to allow for ample networking opportunities and the ability to engage in constructive dialogue among all in attendance.

Influence: Help foster ideas. Share your own insight and knowledge during our interactive sessions. All attendees are encouraged to address our speaker faculty and each other with their questions, comments or ideas.
