The Volatility Community Gives Back
In the spirit of giving thanks, we wanted to thank all of those who have volunteered their time and resources in support of The Volatility Project (TVP). The project has been blessed, throughout the past 5 years, with the talents of people that we would consider to be the brightest stars in the industry. For many of these contributors we’ve been even more impressed by their kindness, generosity, and dedication. On that note, we wanted to acknowledge the efforts of those that helped to make the 2011 Open Memory Forensics Workshop (OMFW) a success. This year, the organizing committee decided to use OMFW as an opportunity to help raise money for charity. The charity selected by the 2011 OMFW attendees was the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. Thanks to the generous contributions of our sponsors, we were able to donate 100% of the money collected from registration fees. We wanted to take this opportunity to share the response we received from this important organization:
Dear Attendees of the 2011 Open Memory Forensics Workshop:
Thank you for choosing the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children to support during your workshop.
We hope you will take pride in knowing that your donation, joined with the support of many others, enables NCMEC to carry on its efforts to locate and recover missing children and raise public awareness about ways to prevent child abduction, endangerment, and sexual exploitation.
Since 1984, we have handled more than 3.4 million calls to our hotline and played a role in the recovery of more than 166,800 children. Since its inception in March 1998, our CyberTipline, which allows individuals to submit an online form to report instances of sexual exploitation of children, has received more than 1.1 million reports, emphasizing our growing focus on this important issue.
We hope you will consider supporting our great mission to save children in the future.
Director of Development
We would like to thank the OMFW sponsors (Volatile Systems, DFRWS, and Terremark), whose generous contributions made this possible. We would also like to thank all of the members of the Volatility Family who contributed their time and resources to the workshop.
We also wanted to take this opportunity to highlight the success of a public-private partnership between Terremark and the Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office. As many of you know, the Terremark Team has been a huge supporter of the Volatility Project throughout the last couple of years. Recently, the Terremark Team also donated resources to help the Culpeper County Sherriff’s Office develop a digital forensics lab. The lab was officially opened in October and is located at Terremark’s NAP of the Capital Region campus. It’s great to see members of the Volatility Family working closely with law enforcement to support public safety. Shoutz to the Terremark Team!
