December 10-11, 2019 | Mary M. Gates Learning Center, Alexandria, VA
DSI’s Digital Forensics for National Security Symposium will bring together members of the Federal Government Agencies, DoD, US Military Services, Academia, & Industry in a ‘town-hall’ type forum to discuss how Digital Forensics, sometimes called ‘Computer Forensics’, is advancing the application of scientific investigation into digital crimes, attacks, and intrusions at the national, state, and local levels. This Symposium will also detail how current innovations in mobile and network forensic toolkits have led to increased success in defending the cyber space, as well as enhanced the ability to recover & preserve data.

Why You Should Attend This Year’s Symposium
- The Digital Forensics Market is expected to increase to 6.95 billion dollars in the US by the year 2025. DSI’s Digital Forensics for National Security Symposium will bring together members of the Federal Government Agencies, DoD, US Military Services, Academia, & Industry in a ‘town-hall’ type forum to discuss how Digital Forensics, sometimes called ‘Computer Forensics’, is advancing the application of scientific investigation into digital crimes, attacks, and intrusions at the national, state, and local levels. This effort can be described as the identifying, maintaining, and analyzing of digital evidence in an effort to identify the source of a cyber breach and other actionable intelligence. This Symposium will detail how current innovations in mobile and network forensic toolkits have led to increased success in defending the cyber space, as well as enhanced the ability to recover & preserve data.
- The sophisticated methods that cyber criminals/terrorists have used to commit digital crimes continue to evolve, due to the advent of modern computing & the ever-changing technological landscape. This Symposium will further explain how the advancements and innovations made in the field of digital forensics in the ‘90s &’00s have resulted in increased capabilities of network forensic tools today. Attendees at this event will have the chance to hear briefs from senior level delegates that provide a deep dive into current/future collaborative efforts to develop & field new ways to combat digital attacks and ultimately, improve the defensive cyber capabilities of federal law enforcement & our nation’s Warfighters. Lastly, this agenda will examine new digital forensic toolkits, such as ‘FileTSAR’, which allow investigators to capture data flows and allows investigators to selectively reconstruct multiple types of data, including documents, images, email, VoIP conversations and messaging on large-scale computer networks.
- DSI’s team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Summits’ content and focus areas. We assemble the most respected minds in the manufacturing and acquisition communities, as well as the key policymakers across military and civilian offices. 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.
