Tue 23 June 2020:

We are in discussions with the event organisers for either a hybrid event in November or to transfer the event from this year to the March 2021 conference. The decision has not yet been finalised but we hope to update the community shortly.


As soon as we have further details we will be in touch to let you know.


Thank you for your continued support.

Thu 12 March 2020:

Despite a number of mitigation actions put in place to reduce the risks associated with the global spread of COVID-19 the ICDDF 2020 events team have received a significant withdrawal of participants and delegates from across industry and law enforcement in the last 24 hours as a result of COVID-19. The event is no longer viable and will be deferred to a later date.


The Awards will consequently be moved to the postponed ICDDF event.

2020 Awards

The 2020 International Digital Investigation Awards have been postponed due to the current COVID-19 (``Coronavirus``) epidemic.


Recognising worldwide excellence and collaboration in digital and cybercrime investigation and intelligence in law enforcement. Nominations for the 2020 awards have now closed.


Celebrating excellence, innovation and progress in digital investigation, as always, the Awards bring together organisations and individuals from around the world who are passionate and inspiring in their fields, giving an opportunity to collaborate and learn together in an evening of drinks, dinner and ceremony.

Great speakers

Every year the Awards are honoured to be supported and attended by some of the leading international and UK law enforcement organisations. The senior stakeholders involved dedicate their time to the success of the event, coming together to recognise the incredible and ground-breaking work of their colleagues.


The awards focus on exceptional work across the previous twelve months and the finalists have been selected by a panel from the nominees chosen by you!

Deeper Insight

This year we plan to showcase the winners’ achievement not only at the awards, but each winner will be given the opportunity to provide their peers with an insight into their work, feeding that excellence back into the community and driving knowledge forward.
