The two-day conference comprises of 7 sessions where 15 research papers will be presented on topics like Deepfakes, Digital Forensic Models, Network Forensics, Digital Forensic Tools and Techniques, Cloud Forensics, Mobile and Embedded Device Forensics, Industrial Control System and Forensics.
The keynote lectures are delivered by experts including Lt. Gen. M. Unnikrishnan Nair, National Cyber Security Coordinator, National Security Council Secretariat, Government of India, New Delhi, India on “Digital Forensics: Visions and Directions”; and Dr. Gaurav Gupta, Additional Director and Scientist E, Ministry of Electronics, and Information Technology (MeitY) on “Evolving Digital Forensics Echosystem”. Lt Col (Dr.) Santosh Khadsare – eSec Forte Technologies while welcoming keynotes emphasized the need of atmanirbharta (indigenous development of products) of digital forensic infrastructure.
Talking about the conference, Dr. Gaurav Gupta, General Chair of the conference and Additional Director/Scientist ‘E’ at Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology (MeitY) said “Since criminals are most creative but lazy people on earth, these traits can be used to develop the solutions to tackle the menace of computer frauds and cyber-crimes. This conference will serve as the platform for researchers and practitioners from all around the world to showcase their novel research work targeted towards that goal. The country needs Digital Forensic Mission to develop the ecosystem to ensure people trust in digital technologies”.
Dr. Somitra Kr Sanadhya, the Organizing Chair of the conference and Professor (CSE), Dean (Digital Transformation) and Chief Information Security Officer Department of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT – Jodhpur has contributed immensely in organizing the conference.
