Bits and Bytes – Industry Roundtable Short Sessions – Sponsored by Authentic8

Enjoy small, quick, compact tradecraft tips, plus cocktails and appetizers, during our tasty ‘Bits and Bytes’ roundtable sessions. Think of it like “Speed Learning with cocktails and apps.” A fast, fun new format: 10 tables, 10 industry specialists. 10 topics. You sit, nosh, and sip while you listen, learn, ask questions and enjoy. When the bell rings – everyone switches to the next table and it’s a new speaker and new topic. Topics will include discussions on the likes of: best practices, finding the OSINT job, due diligence tid-bits, cell phone shortcuts, using maps as a source of information, pre-event protest planning, OSINT blogging, reputational searches and more.

Hg’s 20th Anniversary Bash

We love a party, but this year we’re going to raise the roof in Orlando! Join the Hg team for lunch, cocktails — and a roast or two — as we celebrate our 20 years of cyber investigations, partnerships, and over 180,000 investigators trained! When you’re having a blast, networking couldn’t be easier!


Sunday to Tuesday

Each break is for networking and respite as you grab a bit and some swag from our vendors, and pass a business card to a new connection.

Hetherington Tips for Networking at the Conference:

  • Bring lots of business cards and keep them handy in your name tag badge, they are easy to grab and share.
  • Break away from your colleagues and meet new faces, the one you meet could be your next opportunity.
  • Grab the swag from the vendor booths. You can always share those extra pens with your colleagues back home.
