DataFocus 2017

Sheraton hotel Zagreb, Zagreb, Croatia


DataFocus is an international conference, that has been successfully organized by INsig2, every year since 2012, and attended by more than 200 participants each year, from the whole world. DataFocus is all about exchanging experiences. We bring together law enforcement investigators, prosecutors, judges, court expert witnesses and let them talk about their experiences with digital evidence and digital forensic investigations.

Since its beginnings, DataFocus has always been a conference free of charge for all the attendees, based on invitation of the organizer. It was and still is, INsig2's way of contributing to the digital forensics community by bringing all experts dealing with digital evidence in one place and giving them a chance to learn from one another.

Investigation track 

Lecturers on technical aspects of finding, preserving and processing digital evidence.
