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].
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.

Interview:Evan Ratliff joins us to discuss his attempt to vanish for a month, with Wired Magazine challenging readers to find him, and a $5,000 reward for anyone who snapped his photo and said the word “fluke.” An online posse developed, Evan ducked discovery for 25 days, and was caught in New Orleans, a few days shy of his goal. The interview is about 14 minutes long, and it starts about 57 minutes into Episode 131. You may stream the program here:
Discussion:The texting case that made it to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Our discussion with Lee is about 20 minutes long, and starts about 22 minutes into Episode 131
Our Take on This Week’s News
Amazon is fighting off a demand from the North Carolina Department of Revenue (the state tax collectors). The state wants a record of all Amazon purchases made by its residents, and it wants names, so it can collect the sales tax. Amazon says “privacy violation.” And remember Amazon’s original business was books, which have a special place in the law when it comes to protecting their owners from government intrusion.
Cyberattack on Google Said to Hit Password System. More has been revealed about the extent of the Aurora attack on Google. This story was apparently leaked to the New York Times by someone familiar with the investigation. It suggests huge implications for the security of all Google applications.
Facebook is becoming quite brazen about exposing user profile information. This opinion piece at EFF explains the latest piece of information to be taken out of the user’s control.
About the most straightforward information-sharing scheme we’ve seen yet: Blippy mines your email and credit card statements (with your permission) and posts every purchase you make. Blippy is the VC flavor of the month, having just received $11 million. Too bad some credit card numbers belonging to Blippy users turned up when some curious surfers hit Google with search strings containing the words “Blippy.com” and “from card”. Will Blippy survive? Probably, even in the face of a less-than-apologetic stance from the company (Co-founded by the infamous Pud, of the infamous FuckedCompany.com site from the “dot-bomb” period.) Why anyone would want to be part of Blippy, especially now, is a separate discussion.
Highly-paid SEC lawyers and accountants spent their days surfing porn sites while Bernie Madoff was making off with a whole lotta other people’s money. We ask why, in an entity whose mission revolves around audits and controls, were there no audit trails and controls to call attention to an employee with 16,000 attempts to access porn? Shouldn’t this have been nipped in the bud before it spiraled out of control?
Interview with Joe Grand, electrical engineer, hardware hacker and proprietor of Grand Idea Studio. Ira and Joe discuss hardware hacking. Hobbyists, researchers, and innovators are modifying electronic devices in greater numbers
The 23-minute interview (too long for radio) is posted by itself as episode 104. There’s a partial version of the interview contained in the show, episode 105 of theCyberJungle.
Hardware Hacking Extra: Cell phone as vehicle starter- We got quite a few comments about this. visit: “Dave Hacks, Well, not really hack, but I definitely ‘modify’ things.”
AND — You probably didn’t know this, but Thursday January 28 is International Data Privacy Day. Does the market reward businesses that protect customer privacy? There must be some reward, because there’s growing field of certified privacy professionals… and their organization has thousands of members.
NTSB recommends camera surveillance in train locomotives, after investigating a crash that killed 25. The engineer was texting and using his cell phone at the time of the crash. The union representing train engineers has objected to the recommendation on privacy grounds. Salient fact in the story – the texting engineer had 5 reprimands in his personnel file, issued over a two-and-a-half year period. Now the feds should install cameras to watch ALL engineers (including the ones who follow the rules) just because railroad management failed to fire the loose cannon in their ranks?
