It is a well-known fact that over 90% of all information is created and stored electronically. The exponential growth of Electronically Stored Information (ESI) has had a tremendous impact on the way we live our lives and the manner in which businesses use information. Apart from stored (static) data, there is also the increasing growth of network data or data in motion.
Information growth means that as part of the need for corporate governance, companies need to have a good understanding of how much data is stored within their environments, have readiness plans in place in preparation for internal or external investigations and audits, as well as putting in place the right tools and solutions that would collect, process, analyse, and produce the required information in a forensically-sound manner. Today’s legal professionals need to fully understand the complexities of IT in order to be able to present evidence in disputes in a way that is defensible and timely.
Crucially important is the authenticity, security, and integrity of digital information used by law enforcement agencies in the proper presentation and prosecution of crimes. In contrast to former years where most evidence was in tangible paper format, new forms of information and evidence can be found in a myriad of formats; databases, word documents and spreadsheets, image and video files etc. These forms of information can now be found on CDs, mobile phones, USB devices, personal digital assistants, and other emerging electronic devices. These changes have influenced the way in which authorities and courts treat and accept electronic evidence. Gradually, electronic evidence is being seen on the same level as paper and other forms of tangible evidence.
When it comes to Cyber Security, global organisations are on high alert. The aim of this conference and exhibition is to bring together expert speakers, delegates and cyber security solution providers to assess the current threats that are in corporate and institutional networks and to discuss mitigating controls that reduce exposure to the risks associated with cyber threats and vulnerabilities. We make an attempt to strike a working balance between the sometimes opposing forces of privacy, natioa security, law enforcement, and user convenience. This conference is uniquely positioned to bring about real and sustainable change in the march towards successful Cyber Security practices.
Among the topics that would be covered are lawful and unlawful interception of communications, security on the ever-increasing number of mobile devices and social media, DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks on corporate services and critical national infrastructure. LawTech Europe Congress’ aim is that you will leave the conference with answers to real-world problems as well as getting the advantage of testing out the numerous solutions that our exhibitors have available.
The greater use of electronic evidence presents new challenges of integrity and authenticity, costs of retrieval, authoritative interpretation of electronic information, and the capture of constantly changing network information. Apart from the rules, guidelines, standards, and laws pertaining to the use of evidence, forensics play a major part in terms of the science of accurately determining the piece of evidence that is in question, when the action took place, how it came to be, and who or what is responsible for that action. Forensics can involve the search for deleted files, encryption, steganography, metadata, and other important artefacts. Forensic integrity forms the very foundation on which evidence can be trusted and relied upon.
The discussions,exhibition, and presentations also enable delegates to take proactive measures in information management in order to reduce their reputational, legal, regulatory, and financial risks. LTEC is the ideal place to find out how best to manage e-mail recovery, utilise the latest advanced search technologies, manage data identification, preservation, collection, review, and production.
The discussions also deal with challenges that can be encountered with different forms of evidence media, including hard drives, mobile phones, and other electronic data storage devices. After participating, you will leave with the skills that will enable you to perform a legally-admissible and defensible forensics investigation.
Of great importance in any event is the opportunity to interact with other participants of the conference. The aim of this conference and exhibition is to bring together expert speakers, delegates, and service providers to discuss topics and test out solutions to real-world problems. Our quality delegates consist of In-house lawyers, Law Firms, Auditors, Professionals in E-Discovery, Litigation Support, Digital Forensics, Cyber Security, Data Analytics, and Data Privacy.
There will be at least 2 keynote speeches, 3 parallel tracks, 30 plenary sessions, and nearly 30 exhibitors. With approximately 300 to 400 delegates expected this year, we welcome you to join LTEC’s globally-expanding community. In addition, you will gain access to all the videos, interviews and presentations from INsig2 LawTech Europe Congress after the event, in order to catch up if you missed out on any of the sessions.
You simply cannot miss Europe’s most inclusive and comprehensive annual event for the industry. With its distinctive European location, there would be the chance to explore the many sights of Brussels. Lastly, do not miss the chance to enjoy the Welcome Drinks on Sunday evening and Networking Dinner on Monday evening.
