Cellebrite will be busy during the last week in April, as four events start almost simultaneously! In the United States, join us in greater Boston, Washington D.C., or Orlando; across the pond, we’ll also be in London, England.
Boston: the National Cybercrime Conference
April 28-30 will see us just south of Boston, in Norwood (Massachusetts), for the third annual National Cybercrime Conference. Join us at the Four Points Sheraton, where you’ll find us in Booth 11&12. We’ll also offer two speaking slots and, for the first time, we’re sponsoring a Mock Trial around mobile forensics testimony.
The Mock Trial will happen on Tuesday, April 29th from 2:00pm – 3:15pm. Mobile device evidence will be presented and challenged, as prosecutors examine and cross-examine an expert witness. Learn how to present your case if you’re a prosecutor, or if you’re in law enforcement, how to be a good witness.
Immediately following the Mock Trial, from 3:30 – 4:45pm senior manager of technology and innovation Ronen Engler will speak on “Dealing with Persistent Smartphone Forensic Challenges.” The session will discuss forensic workarounds for the latest data protection, prepaid and unsupported devices, and apps.
Tuesday night from 5:00 – 7:00pm, Cellebrite is hosting a networking reception in Zachariah’s at the Four Points Sheraton. Enjoy complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while also being entered into a raffle, and network with law enforcement, prosecutors and Cellebrite staff.
Wednesday, April 30th from 9:50am – 11:00am, Ronen will offer a live demonstration on “Using Intelligence Methods in Mobile Forensic Exams.” This will show what mobile device usage can reveal about victims, suspects, where their paths cross, and how this information proactively and reactively helps your investigations.
Orlando: International Association of Computer Investigative Specialists (IACIS)
Also starting April 28, and running through May 9, will be IACIS’ annual training convention in Maitland, part of Metro Orlando (Florida). In addition to having a table at the event from May 5-7, Cellebrite internal training staff members, Buddy Tidwell and Joe Duke – both of whom hold the IACIS CFCE certification – will serve as IACIS Instructional Staff for its Advanced Smartphone Training.
In addition, we’re hosting a vendor night with giveaways! Join us on Wednesday, May 7 at 6pm, where we’ll serve refreshments from the Margaritaville menu.
London: Forensic Europe Expo 2014
Join us at Upper West Hall, Olympia, London (United Kingdom) for the two-day Forensic Europe Expo starting April 29, where Cellebrite is exhibiting in Booth 1-B25. As part of the Digital Forensics Conference stream, Yuval Ben-Moshe, Cellebrite’s senior forensics technical director, will present “When a Phone is not a Phone” in the Mobile Forensics track on Wednesday, April 30 from 11:55am – 12:20pm. This presentation will cover mobile devices as an integral part of people’s daily lives, as lockboxes for vast chunks of personal data, and as evidence or containers of evidence after a crime. Participants will get global perspective and an opportunity to share your own views and opinions.
Washington, D.C.: US Cybercrime
Also starting April 29, but running through May 2, will be the US Cybercrime Conference in Dulles (Virginia). Cellebrite is exhibiting in Booth # 401, and will offer lecture tracks in addition to pre-conference training and certification.
Sunday and Monday, April 27-28, Buddy Tidwell, director of global training at Cellebrite, will take students through the Certified Logical Operator (CCLO) course. Designed for first responders and basic to intermediate investigator / examiners, this course exposes students to the fundamentals of mobile device investigations, logical extraction of user data, and analysis of mobile devices. Participants will have the option to become certified as a Cellebrite Certified Logical Operator.
On Thursday, May 1 we’ll be offering two sessions. From 11:10am – 12:00pm, Ronen Engler will reprise the live “Using Intelligence Methods in Mobile Forensic Exams” demonstration. After lunch, from 1:30 – 2:20pm, Ronen will join Cindy Murphy and Heather Mahalik for a presentation on “Mobile Malware.” In this session, learn the difference between malicious targeting and inadvertent mobile malware installation, what to look for in mobile forensic exams, and how to examine malware to learn its purpose.
Whichever side of the pond you’re on, we hope to meet you soon!
