Justin is also a member of the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) and the FBI’s cyber division public-private program, Infragard.

Justin’s discussion will provide our membership plenty to consider, particularly in light of all the data breaches over the past 12 months.
Among the questions you should see answered are the following:

  • When and why does a company need digital forensics expertise?
  • What are the trends in using forensics examination in a corporate environment?
  • Why choose between full time staff and task/event oriented consultant assistance?
  • What are the best practices for engaging a forensics resource through a retainer agreement?
  • What training/certifications are useful in vetting the skill set of a potential forensics examiner?

This is a great opportunity for our members to meet, network, and learn from other members and professionals in the community.  Please be sure to register by clicking on the link below:
