ROSEVILLE, Calif., Aug. 23, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Getting the training and experience needed to work in the computer forensics or network security fields can be challenging and expensive. In keeping with its proud mission of educating individuals involved with high tech investigations, the High Technology Crimes Investigation Association (HTCIA) is uniting with the academic community to offer students and faculty alike, an opportunity to interact with and learn from the top industry experts; as well as network with professionals from all around the world at their 21st annual International Conference and Training Expo from September 8 – 11 at the JW Marriott Resort & Spa Las Vegas in Summerlin, Nev.
Throughout the conference students and faculty will have the opportunity to meet with Federal, State, and Local law enforcement as well as Private Industry investigators. Those who take advantage of the student/faculty registration pass will be able to attend the same training classes offered to our professionals. All labs are hands-on, based on real-world cases and utilize the latest technologies and methodologies available.
The conference will also be showcasing 10 Student Poster Presentations that were previously submitted by talented students, showcasing their own research and capabilities to potential employers and industry leaders.
Ronald J. Wilczynski, Marketing Chair for the 2013 International Conference, and 2013 HTCIA Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, is hoping to expose more students to all of the various opportunities and career paths available within this industry.
“We aspire to help all those in the high technology field, including those who are just now discovering the many facets of this industry, by providing opportunities to receive extensive information, high quality education and to form collective partnerships,” said Wilczynski.
There are two affordable options for students and faculty members to attend and participate in this year’s conference. The first is the free Expo pass that allows you to visit with various vendors at their display booths in the conference exhibit hall. The second option is a substantially discounted student rate of $395 (compared to regular price of $945 for non-members), allowing students to select from the same 30 lectures and 80 labs as our industry professionals, participate in the Symantec Cyber Readiness Challenge, and have access to all of the networking meals and breaks.
“As a special promotion, we are also including a one-year student membership to HTCIA, which will open up a wealth of resources for students as they continue to pursue their studies and future careers,” said Wilczynski.
