Identity Theft 911 Chief Information Security Officer Speaks at International Breach Security and Computer Forensics Conferences
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ — Identity Theft 911 Chief Information Security Officer Ondrej Krehel will be a featured speaker at two international law enforcement conferences in September, discussing computer forensic investigations, data breaches and new techniques in the war on criminal hackers.
International cybercrime is growing at a rapid pace as cybercriminals employ more sophisticated methods to attack governments and corporations. The Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report found that 285 million records were compromised in the U.S. in 2008. Lost business is the most costly outcome, with an average cost of $204 per compromised customer record, according to the Federal Trade Commission.
Krehel will deliver presentations at these events:
- The International Forensic Symposium in Prague, the Czech Republic, Sept. 15-16: Krehel discusses new trends in hacking investigations with a closed room of European Union government and law enforcement experts, including investigators, academics and Europol agents. Organized by the Police Academy of the Czech Republic, the conference establishes connections between Eastern Europe, West Europe and the private sector.
- The 2010 International Training Conference & Exposition in Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 21: Krehel examines trends and recent case studies, and describes digital, volatile and network forensic techniques. Sponsored by the High Tech Crime Investigation Association, the conference attracts law enforcement, prosecuting attorneys and private security firms from around the world.
“This is about building connections and sharing information across Europe and internationally,” Krehel said. “Cybercriminals don’t respect borders. They’re active in all the world’s countries.”
