IT security is an integral aspect in operating IT systems today. Yet, as even high-end precautionary measures cannot prevent every attack or security mishap, the capabilitiy to quickly respond to IT security incidents, to secure infrastructure operations and data, as well as forensic capabilities in investigating such incidents in both technical and legal aspects are paramount. Capable incident response and forensic procedures have thus gained essential relevance in IT infrastructure operations and in law-enforcement, and there is ample need for research and standardization in this area.
Since 2003, the IMF conference has established itself as one of the premier European venues for presenting research on IT security incident response and management and IT forensics. The conference provides a platform for experts from throughout the world to present and discuss recent technical and methodical advances in the field. It shall enable collaboration and exchange of ideas between industry (both as users and solution providers), academia, law-enforcement and other government bodies.
IMF's intent is to gather experts from throughout the world in order to present and discuss recent technical and methodical advances in the fields of IT security incident response and management and IT forensics. The conference provides a platform for collaboration and exchange of ideas between industry, academia, law-enforcement and other government bodies.
We are looking forward to see you, again.
