AMISSVILLE, Va. -- HTCIA (High Technology Crime Investigation Association), the world's largest organization for high technology crime investigators, today announced that Louis Reigel, assistant director of the Cyber Division for the Federal Bureau of Investigation will serve as the keynote speaker for the HTCIA 2005 International Conference & Expo to be held August 29-31, 2005 at the Hyatt Regency Monterey Resort in Monterey, California.

Registration has closed for the event, with more than 650 government and corporate investigators scheduled to attend. Hosted by the Silicon Valley Chapter of HTCIA, the International Conference & Expo offers law enforcement, corporate security investigators and homeland security administrators a unique opportunity to address issues surrounding investigations, apprehension and preventative methodologies associated with the newest breed of high technology criminals.

Hands-on labs and informative, nationally and internationally-recognized speakers provide an array of learning experiences while visiting the beautiful California coast.

The conference features three days of lectures and break-out sessions where attendees will have the opportunity to select from many topics of general and special interests such as: Internet Crime / Cybercrime, Legal Updates, Network Security, Terrorism and Homeland Security.

"We're pleased to announce Louis Reigel as our keynote speaker for this year's conference," said Warren Kruse, International President of HTCIA. "The entire event, offering numerous classes and lectures, is always a one-of-a- kind opportunity for professionals in the field."
