A specialist rather than a generalist, I am committed to maintaining deep knowledge of investigators and their needs. I do this by reading digital forensics blogs, talking with examiners on Twitter and at trade shows, conducting formal interviews, and occasional surveys. The result: a better understanding of why and how law enforcement and digital forensics investigators develop professional connections with one another, solutions providers, and the customers or constituents they serve.
In addition to working in the marketing and public relations department of a mobile forensics solution vendor, I volunteer as chair of the Outreach Committee for the Consortium of Digital Forensics Specialists. I also maintain a second website, Cops 2.0, which brings business communication principles to law enforcement agencies and professionals. (Note: my opinions do not reflect those of my employer.) As a journalist I covered a wide variety of topics, but most centered on high tech, including digital forensics and information sharing. See a selected list of articles I’ve written here.
