Call For Papers

Conference Background

IT-Security has become a steady concern for all entities operating IT-Systems. These include enterprises, governmental and non-governmental organizations, as well as individuals. Yet, despite high-end precautionary measures taken, not every attack or security mishap can be prevented and hence incidents will go on happening. In such cases forensic capabilities in investigating incidents in both technical and legal aspects are vital to understand their issue and feed back the knowledge gained into the security process. Documenting the measures taken to prevent or minimize damage to own or external IT infrastructure provides legal rear cover if an involved party decides to start proceedings. In a possible lawsuit emerging from such an incident, its treatment in a forensically proper way is crucial to be able to possibly claim for damages or prevent from being threatened by claims of third parties. Thus, capable incident response and forensic procedures have become an essential part of IT infrastructure operations.

In law enforcement IT forensics is an important branch and its significance constantly increases since IT has become an essential part in almost every aspect of daily life. IT systems produce traces and evidence in many ways that play a more and more relevant role in resolving cases.

Conference Goals

IMF's intent is to gather experts from throughout the world in order to present and discuss recent technical and methodical advances in the fields of IT security incident response and management and IT forensics. The conference provides a platform for collaboration and exchange of ideas between industry (both as users and solution providers), academia, law-enforcement and other government bodies.
