2024 Conference Program

The 2024 Conference Program is defined by primary topics. Therefore, each session has a primary topic designation for attendees to quickly find those sessions of relevance and importance to them. Sessions are also classified by both Target Level (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced or All) and Target Audience (Corporate/Private Sector, Government, Investigators, Law Enforcement/Police, Prosecutors/Attorneys/Legal).

To sort by topics, audience, and levels to find the program that best suits your needs, click on Filters.

For a list of all sessions by day, please click on the day/date link.

Note - classifications are simply a guide to help attendees select the best sessions for individual needs/experience, and by no means should exclude or deter anyone from attending a session of interest.
