Membership of HTCC brings with it two highly valuable facilities:
1. A very vibrant Listserve
2. An Extranet for essential documents and support
1. HTCC LISTSERVE
The HTCC High Tech Crime Investigator Listserv offers professionals an opportunity to share information with peers via an automated email based mailing list. Access is restricted to HTCC members only, each vetted prior to acceptance.
Over 1400 members from 40 countries are currently subscribed, creating a vast network of subject matter experts who generously offer assistance, advice, technical support, and commentary on legal and procedural issues, as well as tips on investigative techniques.
Members can also learn about training opportunities, funding resources, policy and operational development, academic programs, newly enacted statutes, case law, and international law; new forensic and investigative software, hardware and tools; and the impact of emerging technologies.
A keyword searchable archive is available so that members can easily and quickly find specific subject matter information.
From operating systems to hacker intrusions, software piracy to exploitation of children, subject matter experts are just an email message away.
Secure, Web-based Information Sharing in an easily accessible location. When the need arises to share sensitive information either on an individual, organizational or group basis, members have access to an easy to use, “need-to-know” information management system. Requiring no client-side software beyond a web browser, a user friendly, web-based application allows members to securely exchange email, images, audio files and other digital documents with other members.
Members can access a digital library containing hundreds of documents: case law, white papers, policy and operations plans, forensic shareware, legal boilerplates, slide presentations and more. Other features include secure email, calendar, document management, online briefing and threaded discussions, all of which afford HTCC members a secure Internet environment to exchange information across the Internet. A fully supported help desk is available to assist users if they encounter problems.
Members of HTCC can also benefit from a range of Discounts and Opportunities. Members are offered special rates from internationally recognized training providers, software developers and conference promoters. Employers frequently request HTCC to post job announcements. Forensic software developers often seek assistance from HTCC members to test new products. Relevant funding solicitations are posted as they become available.
Anual dues are $25 USD (or foreign equivalent). Payment may be made by check/cheque or by credit card.
