Conference Summary

This cybercrime conference: Big Data Analytics for Cyber Crime Investigation and Prevention is an incredibly targeted and niche-specific crime event.

There are a multitude of ways you can benefit by attending this conference, not least because the organizers place focus on certain applications that can be from the acquired data from a seized asset, namely:

  • Cyber Threats Intelligence
  • Network Forensics Readiness
  • Malware Analysis & Detection
  • Emails mining & Authorship Identification
  • Social Network Mining
  • Events correlations
  • Access Logs analysis
  • Mobile Forensics
  • Fraud Detection
  • Database Forensics
  • IoT Forensics
  • Blockchain technologies
  • Industrial systems

Finding patterns in data is central to any digital forensics cybercrime investigation and by nature of the beast there are always new technologies and methods that would need to be applied to assimilate data.

This US Cybercrime workshop is absolutely recommended if you work within the industry.

Copenhagen Cybercrime Conference

2020 Conference Date

September 14th, 2020
This Event is Now Over
Denmark

Conference Summary

I’m really delighted to list the Copenhagen Cybercrime Conference because not only is it an excellent Cybercrime event to attend, but also because it is taking place outside of the United Kingdom (London) and the United States. The majority of Cybercrime conferences do take place in the aforementioned countries so – glad to list this one!

This conference, which I believe is also referred to as “Cyberhagen” will discuss the impact that COVID has had on Cybercrime (i.e. a hugely negative impact) and how to attempt to combat it.

One of the things I like the most about this conference is the insistence of the organizers to use real-world case-studies rather than simply theory. There is clearly an abundance of real-life cybercrime horror stories so to be able to place that in context (with a solution) will likely make this an event completely worthwhile.

2020 Conference Date

Conference Summary

This conference, whilst being very specific, is part of the Dynamo North East tech consortium that has a specific agenda to grow and promote the North East of the UK’s tech economy.

Furthering employment within the Information Security industry it seems is also part of their goals so of course, this is a cybercrime event that we simply have to promote.

15th e-Crime & Cybersecurity DACH: Virtual Edition

2020 Conference Date

June 25th, 2020
This Event is Now Over
United Kingdom
2020 Event Link (More Info)

Conference Summary

The current net result of COVID from a cybercrime point of view is that our cybersecurity risk has massively increased.

Large-scale acceptance that employees now work from home (and this trend doesn’t look like it will abate any time soon) has open the doors for hackers and criminals to exploit data.

Hackers are exploiting weaknesses in this work-from-home model and the most striking example of this is through phishing attacks. The easiest way to get into someone’s machine and a corporate network is to send a fake Zoom invitation (for example).

In addition, we are also seeing an increase in DDoS and ransomware attacks that are being directly indiscriminately.

Attending a cybercrime event like this is wholly encouraged since the researchers and organizers are placing emphasis on the problem and on the solutions.

Highly recommended virtual conference if you work in Cybercrime!
