CEIC is the one of the biggest digital investigations conferences of its kind. It is run by Guidance Software and offers everything from hands-on lab sessions and training for practical skills development through to forensics, international eDiscovery and cybersecurity intelligence.
This year it runs over four days, from 18 to 21 May, at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Its website includes a set of short videos about the different aspects of the event – cybersecurity, legal technology, and digital forensics
It is aimed at digital forensic examiners, anyone involved in litigation support and eDiscovery in corporations and law firms, compliance and risk managers, information security and cybersecurity professionals and law enforcement.
Many people go to it in order to get their EnCE and EnCEP and other certifications. Others, like me, go for primarily for the eDiscovery side – I took part in a panel last year on privacy and cross-border eDiscovery with US Magistrate Judge Andrew Peck amongst others, and there was a first-rate judicial panel with District Judge Shira Scheindlin, US Magistrate Judge Andrew Peck, US Magistrate Judge Waxse and US Magistrate Judge Mitch Dembin.
On top of all this is a context designed for networking, whether at the parties around the pool or in the many restaurants and other venues which Las Vegas offers.
Registration is open and my reason for writing about it now is that early bird pricing ends on 5 December.
Some photographs of last year’s event give you the flavour of it.
