Eoghan Casey is a full professor at the University of Lausanne in the School of Criminal Sciences. He is an internationally recognized expert in digital forensic science and data breach investigation. He previously served as Chief Scientist at the Defense Cyber Crime Center (DC3), prioritizing research and development across multiple organizational units, and providing strategic and technical guidance to navigate evolving challenges in digital forensics and intrusion/malware analysis. In his prior work as Lead Cyber Security Engineer at The MITRE Corporation, Eoghan Casey developed new capabilities for extracting and analyzing digital evidence associated with smartphones and network attacks. As a professional consultant, he has helped organizations handle security breaches and analyzed digital evidence in a wide range of complex investigations, including network intrusions with international scope. He has testified in civil and criminal cases, and has submitted expert reports and prepared trial exhibits for computer forensic and cyber-crime cases. Eoghan Casey wrote the foundational book Digital Evidence and Computer Crime, now in its third edition, and he created Smartphone Forensics courses taught worldwide. He has also coauthored several advanced technical books including Malware Forensics, and the Handbook of Digital Forensics and Investigation. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from University College Dublin, and taught digital forensics at the Johns Hopkins University Information Security Institute. Since 2004, Eoghan Casey has been Editor-in-Chief of Digital Investigation: The International Journal of Digital Forensics & Incident Response, publishing cutting edge work by and for practitioners and researchers. He also contributes to definitions, guidelines, and standards as Executive Secretary of the Digital/Multimedia Scientific Area Committee of the Organization for Scientific Area Committees. He helps organize the digital forensic research DFRWS.org conferences each year, and is on the DFRWS Board of Directors.
David-Olivier Jaquet-Chiffelle is a full professor at the School of Criminal Justice, University of Lausanne, where he started teaching in 2003. Since 2012, he holds the newly created chair in digital traces and identities. David-O. Jaquet-Chiffelle accomplished his PhD thesis in Mathematics at the University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland. He spent a post-doc at Harvard University (Boston, USA) where he was also lecturer in the Department of Mathematics. Then, he strengthened his experience in cryptology while working for the Swiss government at the Swiss Federal Section of Cryptology. He has a long experience in projects related to identity, security and privacy. David-O. Jaquet-Chiffelle conceived the system used by the Swiss Federal Statistical Office (SFSO) for its official medical statistics of all patients hospitalized in Switzerland. This system allows the SFSO to recognize that the same patient was hospitalized in two different hospitals, even on different years, while protecting the patient's anonymity. All Swiss hospitals now use this system to transfer their data to the SFSO. David-O. Jaquet-Chiffelle has been very active in FIDIS (Future of Identity in the Information Society), a network of excellence of the 6th European framework program and is partner in CANVAS, a newly funded FP7 EU project. He is the inventor of one patent related to authentication processes, and co-inventor of two other patent applications linked to biometric pseudonyms. David-O. Jaquet-Chiffelle regularly acts as an expert for the European Commission and is active in standardization bodies (NIST, ISO). His current research covers OSINT, cybercrime, security and privacy, new forms of identities in the information society, as well as authentication, anonymization and identification processes, especially in the digital world. He is general chair of the International conference DFRWS EU 2016.
Zeno Geradts is a senior forensic scientist at the department Digital and Biometrics Traces. He has worked at the NFI since 1991, and has written over five hundred reports for court cases, and testified many times in court. Since 2014 he has been appointed as full professor Forensic Data Science at the Institute for Informatics at the University of Amsterdam. He is currently Chairman of the ENFSI Forensic IT working group, and is the Founding Chairman of the Digital and Multimedia Section of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences, where he is currently in the Executive Committee as Treasurer and is expected to be the first non-American President of the AAFS in 2020. Zeno received the Distinguished Forensic Scientist Award of ENFSI in 2012. Mr. Geradts has also validated and implemented several new techniques within the field of Multimedia forensics and is handling editor of the journal Digital Investigation.
In addition to the above, the conference features a work-in-progress session where any conference attendant can present their ongoing work for 5 minutes.
Sponsors of the conference will gain visibility for their companies, demonstrate their support of forensic research and development, and contribute to the success of the conference. All sponsors will have their logo listed on the DFRWS EU 2016 website with a link to their website and will be listed in the printed proceedings. They will also get recognition at specific events that they sponsor.
