HUNTINGTON -- The Appalachian Institute of Digital Evidence will have its annual winter training meeting Feb. 17-18 at Marshall University.

The two-day event will offer an array of training targeted toward legal, digital forensic, law enforcement and information security professionals and students. The presentations are divided into three training tracks: digital forensics, information security and electronic discovery.

"If you work with digital evidence, you can't afford to stop learning. The technology alone will pass you by in a heartbeat," said John Sammons, a professor at Marshall and the director of the AIDE. "Events like ours help professionals and students keep pace with both the technology and the law."

The meeting will be held at Marshall's Forensic Science Center in Huntington.
