12th Annual Computer and Enterprise Investigations Conference (CEIC) Brings Together Experts in Digital Investigations, Cyber Security and E-Discovery08:00 EDT Tuesday, May 22, 2012 LAS VEGAS (Business Wire) -- Guidance Software Inc. (NASDAQ:GUID), the World Leader in Digital Investigations™, today announced that the 12th annual Computer and Enterprise Investigations Conference opened by addressing the solutions to the key challenges of the modern world of digital investigations. The conference is happening now through May 24th at the Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas, Nev. The conference kicked off Monday, May 21st with the first-ever CISO Summit, a single-day, executive-level conference focused on cutting-edge strategies for data visibility and incident response. The event provided high-level guest speakers including Dr. Larry Ponemon, Ph.D., Chairman and Founder, Ponemon Institute; Bryan Sartin, Vice President of Investigative Response, Verizon Business; and the Honorable Andrew J. Peck, US Magistrate Judge who provided C-level IT security executive attendees with the latest in research and best practices to reduce the risk and cost of breaches and increase the efficiency and effectiveness of security and response staff. Following the CISO Summit, on Monday afternoon Victor Limongelli, president and chief executive officer of Guidance Software, delivered the opening keynote focused on providing solutions to the challenges created by the explosion of modern digital investigations. These challenges - heterogeneity and proliferation of platforms and devices available today, networked interoperability, the rise of big data and a rapidly vanishing network perimeter - demand integrated products that deliver easy-to-use capabilities to experts and non-experts alike. “The influx of Big Data combined with the continued diminishing of a well-defined network perimeter makes the task of digital investigations exponentially more difficult,” said Alex Andrianopoulos, Guidance Software vice president of marketing. “At CEIC, digital investigations, cyber security and e-discovery professionals share thought leadership and learn about the latest advances in the industry to identify solutions to these challenges.” More than 50 sponsors are in the exhibit halls at this year's conference, representing the best in computer forensic, e-discovery and cyber security products and services, with gold sponsors including Accuvant, Dell, FishNet Security and HBGary, Inc.
