If missing a television episode of C.S.I. Crime Scene Investigation seems like high crime, try learning about "computer forensics"-how to investigate and apprehend someone who has committed a "virtual crime."
The Security Practices and Research Student Association (SPARSA) at Rochester Institute of Technology, is hosting an Info Age Lecture by high-tech crime expert, Warren Kruse. The discussion will be held from 8 to 10 p.m. on Tuesday, April 30, in the James E. Booth Building, Webb Auditorium.
Kruse serves as computer forensics program manager for Lucent Technologies in New Jersey. A former police officer, he is also president of the Northeast Chapter of the High-Tech Crime Investigative Association and teaches Computer Forensics for the SANS Institute. Among Kruse’s publishing credits are his recent book, Computer Forensics: Incident Response Essentials, and articles on computer crime for Law Enforcement Technology magazine.
SPARSA is a student-run organization at RIT that addresses security-related issues and their relationships to majors and disciplines. It also provides students with co-op and employment opportunities in security-related fields.
Tickets for the computer forensics lecture are $15 for the general public.
