HTCIA International Conference and Training Expo 2013

HTCIA International Conference and Training Expo 2013

The High Technology Crime Investigation Association (HTCIA) Annual conference is committed to bringing its participants – members or non-members — the best training, tools and networking the industry has to offer.

We rely on the generosity of our sponsors, who take a vested interest in working with us to develop a conference that exemplifies what the HTCIA organizations stands for. By fostering the exchange of investigation-related information and ideas, we bring together a community of professionals who help one another understand and adapt to our rapidly evolving industry–to everyone’s benefit.

The 2013 conference is being held from September 8-11, 2013 in Las Vegas, NV [Summerlin is the western side of Las Vegas, 15min from Downtown via freeway].

Paraben's Forensic Innovations Conference

The Paraben Forensic Innovations Conference has been an annual event since 2008. Since that time it has rapidly evolved into a higher attended conference with a broader scope of topics reaching from deeply technical into the legal aspects of the forensics and eDiscovery industry. Those who attend PFIC are as diverse as our topics, from law enforcement and lawyers, to corporate entities, government agents, private investigators, and educational institutions. If you haven’t had the opportunity to attend, this is your chance to experience the fresh air and mountains of Utah as well as the fresh topics that will be the highlight of this year’s conference. If you’ve already attended, then you know what to expect and are as excited as we are about it!  PFIC 2013 will be held November 13-15th, 2013 in Salt Lake City Utah. Space for this conference is limited, and with tickets starting at $199, the show will almost surely sell out. The CyberJungle will be there, because it is one of the best bang for the buck forensic conferences of the year.
