E-Signatures have become an increasingly common component of everyday life over the last two decades. With so much of the world relying upon eSignatures, this session will take a step back and explore eSignatures through the lens of Forensic Reliability; that is: how reliable are eSignatures at allowing for a credible determination of authenticity, and how resistant they are to fraud?

Mr. Kulbacki has over a decade of experience as an expert in the examination of documents for evidence of alteration, counterfeiting, and forgery, including working for both the IRS Criminal Investigation’s National Forensic Laboratory and the South Carolina State Law Enforcement Division.
