DIGITAL FORENSICS FOR PRIVATE SECURITY
Smartphone devices learning the keys to collection and apps
Amber Schroader

This presentation will cover data that is stored on smart devices. Data review of common Apps and what information can be uncovered. Smartphones are taking over the world of electronic transactions. With millions of apps and millions of ways to accomplish a variety of nefarious activities knowledge about these devices and what can be gathered is crucial to any investigator. Come and learn what you should look for, what proper techniques should be followed to preserve and protect the data. What risks might affect the ability to retain the information and mine it for valuable investigative details.

 

WORKING TOGETHER TO FIGHT INSURANCE FRAUD
Trends in Insurance Fraud
Gary Reinhardt, Esq.

Mr. Reinhardt’s presentation will review the impact of Examinations Under Oath and permissible sharing of information as each relate to an recent indictment issued by the US Attorneys’ Office involving an alleged insurance fraud ring.

 

CRYPTO CURRENCY
BitCoin Information & Tracking
Patrick Stump

Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies are no longer just for cyber geeks, they convey real spending power. From legitimate to criminal purchases, Bitcoins can be used as a method to move massive amounts of money outside of normal channels. This talk will show how crypto currencies work, if they are anonymous, and what can we really buy with these made up coins that only exist in cyber space. I will show you how and why most of these transactions are not as anonymous as most people think and why you don’t even need a subpoena to look up transactions. In the age of the geek, money just got upgraded.

 

LESSONS LEARNED FROM 8 MILLIONS DOLLAR CASE
Nathan Mueller

After the reinsurance company Nathan worked for was purchased by ING for $6 billion, he played a key role in transitioning its operations onto ING’s enterprise resource planning system. Enabled by lax controls and unchecked authority to distribute funds, Nathan began embezzling money to pay off personal debt and fund a passion for gambling. What started as a $1,100 check to a credit card, spiraled into an $8.5 million fraud over the next four years. It was only a co-worker’s suspicions that brought the fraud to an end.

Nathan’s presentation will discuss how the fraud was committed, internal controls, lessons learned, the investigation by the FBI and ultimately after being caught, he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 97 months in federal prison. He was released in September of 2014.

 

CIVIL RIGHTS – CIVIL WRONGS
Kitty Hailey, CLI
Everyone has a job to do. That includes law enforcement officers.  However, when officers overstep their bounds out of hatred, fear or the sheer rush of adrenaline after a chase, then the results can be deadly.  Not all victims of police excessive force are stellar citizens, but as citizens there are rights that they share in common with all other citizens of this country.  When violated, these cases become the purview of the legal investigator.  Kitty Hailey, CLI has been working civil rights cases for several decades. The circumstances have changed much, but the publicity due to the advent of social media has brought these cases to the forefront of consciousness.  Investigating police shootings, excessive force and their consequences takes a thorough, solid and detailed investigation.  There are many component parts and Kitty examines and explains them to educate attendees.

 

CONDUCTING INTERVIEWS
The Effective Interview

Michael Pocalyko

Every case we work on may require an interview. In this eye-opening session, Mr. Pocalyko will examine the psychology of interviewing, explain how context, transparency, intelligence, and deep preparation matter more than technique, and show the importance of the cognitive biases that impede best results in civil and criminal cases.

 

INDUSTRY ROUND TABLES
Steve Lockman, CLI, FCI/Troy Fleming and Susan Spofford/Jenn Brown, J.D., CLI
We will have two round tables lead by experienced investigators:  one for staff investigators and one for private security.  Participants will discuss topics concerning the industry including, but, not limited to:  client contact, problem witness interviews and mentoring the millennial generation.
