Academics and industry experts from five continents recently attended the 7th annual conference of the Association of Digital Forensics, Security and Law (ADFSL), directed by Dr. Glenn Dardick of Longwood University.

The conference, held May 30-31 in Richmond, was hosted by the ADFSL, sponsored in part by Longwood's College of Business and Economics, and chaired by Dardick, associate professor of information technology and director of the Longwood Center for Cyber Security. Participants came from numerous countries, including Egypt, India, China, Germany, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and Brazil, and from throughout the United States. In addition to members of academia, they represented the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, the Taiwanese equivalent of the FBI and General Electric's new Richmond-based Cyber Security Center.

The keynote speakers were Dr. Mohamed Chawki, founder co-chairman of the International Association of Cybercrime Prevention in Paris, and Nigel Wilson, senior lecturer at the University of Adelaide Law School in Australia.

"The conference allows many academics and practitioners from the local, national and international technical and legal communities to come together and hear about and discuss trends and leading-edge research from experts in cyberforensics, security and cyberlaw," said Dardick.

The ADFSL, which Dardick founded in 2006, focuses on the role of digital forensics in law enforcement, network security and information assurance. For more information, visit http://www.digitalforensics-conference.org/.
