Identifying and Responding to the Unique Needs of Victims of Child Sexual Abuse Materials

Through the operation of for the past 15 years, the Canadian Centre for Child Protection has witnessed the growing proliferation of online child sexual abuse materials. We are now starting to see the first generation of these victims reach adulthood. Our victim-centric strategy lead to the first international survey of adult survivors whose child sexual abuse was recorded and distributed online, and to the ground-breaking Project Arachnid, a webcrawler that detects previously identified illegal content. This presentation will address the role of technology in online crimes against children, highlight data from reports to, share what we heard from survivors in the survey, and how Arachnid offers psychological relief to victims of this horrendous crime.

In the Cyber World Things Are Not Always As They Seem

Offering an intimate look into a complex investigation that began with a sophisticated email hack of a private school, expanded to include potential compromise of victims’ home networks, and ended in charges to a victim turned suspect. This case study will detail the investigative process, describe the multiple stakeholders involved, and explain how the investigative team was put on the defensive by experts hired by the suspect. The case study will show how police conducted a thorough investigation including a consideration of alternate facts and ultimately triumphing in the battle of the experts.

National Cyber-Forensics & Training Alliance USA
Know Thy Enemy - Cyber threats are all around us; at work, at home, and everywhere in between. Threat actors operate with ruthless disregard for industry sectors, government affiliation, or socio-economic standing – everything and everyone has value. Studying and getting to know the enemy is a critical component to an effective defense, both professionally and personally.

Leveraging the research, analysis, and real world case examples from the National Cyber-Forensics and Training Alliance, Matt will discuss how the cyber criminals are organized, what the miscreants are after, the methods they use, and how they exploit the information they steal. He will also lay out actionable steps that industry, government, and citizens can take to form a more effective defense to move the needle and protect our critical assets from continued attacks.
