Guidance’s Computer Enterprise Investigation Conference 2009

Booth_1205D4 LLC exhibited at the Computer Enterprise Investigation Conference (CEIC) for the first time in Orlando on May 17-20, 2009.  I have attended the show for the last four years and it was an honor to present again on e-Discovery.

CEIC always brings together the most educated people on computer forensics, e-Discovery, information security systems and law enforcement.  I participated in Guidance’s first “Birds of a Feather” meeting, where we discussed everything from collection of ESI, MD5 Hash Values and the finer points of the practice of law with technology. 

I presented “What Goes Bump in the Night,” focusing on many of the new Web 2.0 litigation cases.  Below is a video clip from the presentation on personal jurisdiction.

The Keynote Speaker was Leonard Nimoy, whose personal story of “trains, horses and starships” was extremely entertaining.  He is also a very kind man who took the time to greet many of the attendees. 


I look forward to CEIC 2010 and congratulate Guidance on a very successful conference.
