Why You Should Attend This Year's Symposium

DSI is proud to present the 5th Annual Digital Forensics for National Security Symposium, an event that will bring together members of the IC, DoD, federal government, industry, and academia in a town hall style forum to collaborate across the community on ways to advance digital forensics solutions to support criminal investigations, crime prevention, and threat mitigation efforts.

Amid the ever-evolving landscape of digital criminal threats, the Digital Forensics for National Security Symposium will address the pressing need to counter these activities. Leaders from across the digital criminal justice enterprise will discuss the technologies and policies necessary to overcome current challenges, and a panel of experts will share their perspective on the potential for eDiscovery tools to further support investigative capabilities.

DSI’s team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Summits' content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in digital forensics and forensic science across IC, DoD, federal government, academia, and industry. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all services and organizations to bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.

DSI’s Summit will provide a forum to address and improve internal and external initiatives, meet with and hear from partner organizations, disseminate vital capability requirements to industry, increase visibility within the larger community, and generally support their mission. The Symposium is open and complimentary to all DoD and Federal employees and is considered an educational and training forum.
