Conference Wrap Up

Thank you to everyone who made this one of the best CTIN conferences yet! The all volunteer CTIN board worked very hard to:

– Book some of the very best world class forensic experts who provided information available nowhere else
– Host the conference in an awesome venue and provide free food and snacks
– Provide a variety of interesting and useful swag items
– Attract extremely helpful vendors with leading edge forensic tools
– Create an amazing raffle with many additional thanks to all the vendors who donated approximately $8,000 worth of hardware and software

This annual conference is the clearly the best digital forensics conference anywhere and we are already looking forward to next year’s conference!

Many additional thanks to all the conference attendees who freely shared their knowledge and asked the insightful questions that everyone benefited from as well. The networking opportunities between the various public and private sector employees, consultants, and experts have helped to make this the premiere event that it has become.

We are already looking forward to next year’s conference and hope that if you are not a CTIN member, you will consider joining our organization to make it stronger and more diverse!

Thanks again to everyone who participated and hope to see you again next year!!

Conference Room Changes

The conference is now in day 2 and today promises to be another day filled with amazing presentations and info. There has been a room change for the remaining presentations:

Room 204 presentations will be in Room 206
Room 206 presentations will be in Room 214

Conference Starts In Two Days!

Only two days left until the conference starts on Monday so make sure to register today or tomorrow (not too late!!) to make sure your name badge and swag are ready for you on Monday morning. If you’re not sure about registering, next week in Seattle will be rainy so what better time to stay indoors and listen to world class forensics experts!

CTIN Annual Elections

As any non-profit organization, we must have annual elections to vote in the executives and general board members. We are a volunteer organization and we depend on members volunteering to help run the organization. This year we will be voting on the executive positions of President and Treasurer as well as several open board positions. If you believe in the goals of our organization and have experience or interest in helping to run a non-profit organization, please avail yourself of the nominating meeting to be held at lunch on Tuesday, March 15th. At that meeting the duties and responsibilities of each position will be explained so you can decide if it is something you would feel comfortable doing. Then, all members are encouraged to attend our General Membership Meeting to be held at lunch on Wednesday, March 16th where we will hold elections. You have to be a member of CTIN in order to volunteer for the positions and to vote but you do not have to be a registered attendee of the conference.

The CTIN Board has worked hard to put together another outstanding and informative forensics conference. They all did this with one goal, to provide you with the opportunity to be better forensic experts. I hope every CTIN member will take advantage of this effort. Go sign up now!

Conference Starts In Six Days

Look at the list of world class forensic experts who will be giving presentations and the topics of their presentations and consider how those would look on your resume and how much better of a forensic expert you would be by hearing them. In addition, don’t forget the $5,363 worth of forensic software and hardware you could potentially win in our raffle. But, don’t overlook the value of getting to network with and talk forensics with some of the best forensic experts in the Pacific Northwest and the country.

Updated Conference Schedule and Agenda
