     Title: Vere Software President to Speak at International Computer Forensics Conference

Todd Shipley to present on Web page reconstruction, file carving

Reno, NV—Todd Shipley, president and CEO of Vere Software, will present at the Carcur Computer & Digital Forensics Conference in Curacao Netherlands Antilles on November 19-18, 2009. His topics will be Web page (HTML) reconstruction and raw data carving.

Shipley, a Computer Forensic Certified Examiner (CFCE), will discuss how Web pages work, how they come to be on a computer, how they are stored, and how to rebuild them. He will also discuss how in context, Internet artifacts can be something much different than they appear to be when they are viewed out of context.

“Collection and documentation of 'live' Web sites is one part of an investigation, but it is also important for computer forensic examiners to know how to analyze their artifacts left behind on a hard drive,” said Shipley.

Hosted at the World Trade Center Curacao, the Carcur Conference is designed not only for computer forensics experts, but also for all law enforcement, private investigators, prosecutors, financial experts, and corporate personnel.

Shipley will additionally present on raw data carving: recovery of deleted files from unallocated file space. Carving utilities are able to recover deleted data automatically through file header and footer identification.


Todd G. Shipley has more than 25 years of experience in law enforcement: from investigating financial and computer crimes to overseeing the training of high-tech crimes investigators.

As a Senior Detective Sergeant managing the agency's Financial and Computer Crimes Unit, he investigated serious financial offenses; developed cyber and technology crime investigative policy; and served as a liaison to other law enforcement, intelligence, and government agencies and industry bodies.
