    Forensic Fridays: Emerging Topics in the Investigation and Prosecution of Cyber-Crime

    In an era of ever-proliferating use of the Internet and mobile devices, law enforcement officers and prosecutors—along with the public they serve—must grapple daily with those who would use personal computers, cell phones and other digital devices to do everything from perpetrate Ponzi schemes to lure children into harm’s way. Featured speakers Glenn K. Bard, international cyber-crime consultant and former Pennsylvania state trooper, U.S. Attorney John Valkovci Jr., Pittsburgh Police Mobile Crimes Unit Sgt. Michael Del Cimmuto and other experts will impart a more current and comprehensive knowledge of both the crime-fighting challenges and investigative and legal opportunities presented by the proliferation of digital technology in the 21st century. Approved by the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Board for six hours of substantive CLE credit. Sponsored by Duquesne University’s Cyril H. Wecht Institute of Forensic Science and Law as part of its Forensic Fridays series.
