By most estimates, 90% of legal evidence resides in computer systems, rather than on paper. Cases involving corporate trade secrets, personal and commercial disputes, employment discrimination, misdemeanor and felony crimes, and personal injury can be won or lost solely with the introduction of recovered e-mail messages and other electronic files and records.

The rate of fraud, abuse and criminal activity on IT systems by hackers, private contractors and even employees is increasing exponentially. For some companies, it is not a question if one of their computers will be used as evidence in a legal matter, it is a question of when.

Like it or not, every computer is a potential crime scene and must be treated with care. When companies need to conduct internal investigations-especially those involving litigation-discovering and maintaining evidence becomes paramount.

Computer Forensics is widely used in prosecutors' offices, law firms, consulting firms, police departments, law enforcement organizations, Immigration and Naturalization Services, the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the U.S. Customs Service, among numerous other industries. Corporate IT, Law Enforcement and Information Security Pros are often required to perform computer forensics activities on their jobs.

The Computer Forensics Show, November 1-2, 2010 at the Fort Mason Center in San Francisco, is the don't miss event of the year for all IT Security, Legal, Accounting, Risk Management, Executive and Law Enforcement professionals.
