 IMF 2013 Logo7th International Conference on
IT Security Incident Management & IT-Forensics

March 12 - 14, 2013,
Nuremberg, Germany


Conference Background

Today IT security is an integral aspect in operating IT-Systems. Yet, despite high-end precautionary measures taken, not every attack or security mishap can be prevented and hence incidents will go on happening. In such cases forensic capabilities in investigating incidents in both technical and legal aspects are paramount. Thus, capable incident response and forensic procedures have gained essential relevance in IT infrastructure operations and there is ample need for research and standardization in this area.

In law enforcement IT forensics is an important branch and its significance constantly increases since IT has become an essential part in almost every aspect of daily life. IT systems produce traces and evidence in many ways that play a more and more relevant role in resolving cases.

Conference Goals

The IMF conference provides a platform for experts from throughout the world to present and discuss recent technical and methodical advances in the fields of IT security incident response and management and IT forensics. It shall enable collaboration and exchange of ideas between industry (both as users and solution providers), academia, law-enforcement and other government bodies.

Conference Topics

The scope of IMF 2013 is broad and includes, but is not limited to the following areas:

IT Security Incident ResponseIT Forensics
