This year’s charity is Dress for Success Charlotte. The mission of Dress for Success is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. Dress for Success was founded in New York City in 1997 and is now in 152 cities in 28 countries. Dress for Success Charlotte was incorporated in 2000 and works in partnership with more than 60 referral agency partners. We all know that Dress for Success provides women with clothing for interviews, but they also help women put together work-appropriate wardrobes after they land a job. Every meeting this year, we’re going to be highlighting certain items to think about donating. And we are starting small. For our second meeting, we are encouraging everyone to bring new or gently used sweaters to the meeting where we will collect them for donation. But, of course, any donation is greatly appreciated!

Dr. Sarah Lewis Cortes is our dynamic May speaker on "Darknet Investigations - The Underbellly of the Web". She will be reviewing eight recent darknet operations as case studies, and practical techniques for deanonymization. These darknet cases and issues reflect that as technology advances, so do criminal methods. The darknet is a little understood corner of the internet where users can remain anonymous, even to law enforcement. It has many legitimate uses, but has become a criminal haven as well, primarily because technical complexity makes it harder to identify users than on the “surface web.” Like a technological cat and mouse game, law enforcement has had to develop compensating online darknet tools and tactics. We explore the unique legal and technical issues spawned by this investigative cat and mouse game.
Dr. Sarah Lewis Cortes is Head of Infosec and Privacy Services at Inman TechnologyIT. She earned her undergraduate degree at Harvard University, and holds an M.S. from Boston University, in Computer Science, Information Security, and a PhD in Computer Science, Information Assurance at Northeastern University’s College of Computing and Information Science specializing in Privacy and Privacy Law as well as IT Security. She studied Forensic Sciences at Boston University Medical School. Her research focuses on the darknet, network security, criminal legal treaties (MLATs), and digital forensics. She conducts training and research with the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office Department Digital Forensics and Multimedia Evidence, the FBI and other LEAs. Prior to undertaking her Ph.D, Sarah was a Senior Vice President for Security, IT Audit and Disaster Recovery at Putnam Investments, Before that, she was a Sr. VP for Data Center and Security Operations with BNY Mellon Bank. Sarah has published and lectured extensively on the darknet, computer security and privacy, including MLAT.is World Treaty Cartel Internet Overlay for Digital Traffic Analytics, featured in the 2017 IEEE International Symposium on Technologies for Homeland Security (HST17).
Quivx will be our generous lunch sponsor for the meeting.

Spotlight on eDiscovery & AI: How to Champion Your Firm's Audio and Video Files
Are your discovery techniques keeping up with advances in technology? New media audio and video files present an increasing challenge to legal professionals looking to meet eDiscovery, regulatory compliance, and business intelligence requirements. Learn how to prepare for litigation or regulatory investigations that involve audio and video electronic evidence requiring transcription, translation, redaction, object detection, and more. Michael Swarz of Veritone will impart practical strategies, review risk management protocols, and best practices for conducting Electronic Discovery with audio or video ESI by covering applicable state and federal case law, regulations and the process itself. The presentation will also include a discussion on Artificial Intelligence for Legal Professionals led by Veritone's Karenna Soto that will present important technological considerations and options. We encourage you and your colleagues to join us at this informative seminar to gain valuable insight.
