2022 International White Hat Conference—Day 2

  • Starts: 9:00 am on Thursday, June 2, 2022
  • Ends: 5:00 pm on Thursday, June 2, 2022

Over the years, the use of cryptocurrency has reportedly been prevalent in illicit darkweb marketplaces. However, the existing capabilities of many law enforcement agencies are limited, and local and state law enforcement officers often lack the expertise to identify and acquire potential evidential artifacts from contemporary consumer technologies to support the elements of proof required in a successful prosecution.

Focusing on the “Evolution of Illicit Crypto Use: Current Approaches and Future Challenges for Financial and Government Sectors,” the Third Annual White Hat Conference will serve to enhance current capacities of higher education to better serve students of cybersecurity, computer forensics, and digital evidence, leading to improved cybercrime investigations and successful prosecutions. Subject matter experts will share their expertise on emerging technologies, laws, and policies—while highlighting the challenges faced by law enforcement.

Furthermore, the conference will host a job fair to assist students with internship opportunities within the areas of computer forensics and digital evidence.

This event is hosted by Boston University’s Metropolitan College (MET) Criminal Justice Graduate Programs in collaboration with Utica College and the Center for Cybercrime Investigation & Cybersecurity, and supported by the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA).
