Investigating Cybercrime: On the Digital Front Lines
In an era when the Internet has become central to our lives, it is imperative to be educated on cybercrime – and how to avoid becoming a victim. Join us for a videoconference presentation and hear from two of the foremost experts, Art Bowker and Todd Shipley, who are co-authors of an invaluable guide that provides step-by-step instructions for investigating internet crimes and all aspects surrounding it.
Art Bowker is a cybercrime expert with over 30 years experience in law enforcement and corrections. He is coauthor of Investigating Internet Crimes: An Introduction to Solving Crimes in Cyberspace and author of The Cybercrime Handbook for Community Corrections: Managing Offender Risk in the 21st Century. In 2013 he received top awards from both the American Probation and Parole Association and the Federal Probation and Pretrial Officers Association. These awards centered on his promoting awareness and knowledge of cybercrime and tools to control such crimes in the field of community corrections (pretrial, probation, and parole). In August of 2016 Bowker was the recipient of the High Technology Crime Investigation Association (HTCIA) Lifetime Achievement Award. Art is a lifetime HTCIA member, having served as its International President in 2008.
Mr. Shipley served 25 years with the Reno (Nevada) Police Department, retiring as a Senior Detective Sergeant. His last position was managing the agency’s Financial and Computer Crimes Unit. In 2004 he became the Director of Systems Security and High Tech Crime Prevention Training for SEARCH, The National Consortium for Justice Information and Statistics in Sacramento, California. He oversaw a nationwide program that provided expert technical assistance and training to local, state, and federal justice agencies. In 2007, he started Vere Software with the intention of building investigative and Internet documentation tools for the law enforcement and legal communities. The patented processes designed in WebCase, the online evidence collection tool, were spawned by his desire to provide investigators with a tool previously unavailable to the market. Mr. Shipley is a regular speaker inter-nationally on Cybercrime issues and is an author. He is coauthor of “Investigating Internet Crime-An introduction to solving crimes in cyberspace” and was featured Internet investigations expert in the movie documentary “Deep Web”, by Alex Winter.
