ROSEVILLE, Calif. /California Newswire/ — The HTCIA (High Technology Crime Investigation Association) challenges attendees to solve a "Network Forensics Murder Mystery" at the 21st Annual International Conference & Training Expo on Sept. 8-11, 2013 at the J.W. Marriott Resort & Spa – Las Vegas in Summerlin, Nevada.
This popular workshop created by LMG Security is one of this year's featured events, and puts the attendees directly in the shoes of the forensic investigator during a challenging investigation.
Various forms of evidence, such as smartphone packet captures, instant message traffic, video and web traffic, will be analyzed by the attendees using LMG's custom-built network forensics workstation, as they learn cutting edge network forensics techniques. There is a limited quantity of seats remaining so HTCIA recommends you register and signup for this session before it closes.
"It has been reported recently that there are 18 victims of cybercrime per second, 1.5 million per day. We are in a unique position to be a part of the prevention as well as the solution to this growing epidemic, which is why workshops such as this one, and the entire conference in general, are so important and worthwhile in this industry," says Maria Noboa, an HTCIA Marketing Committee Team Lead.
