Computer sleuths dig deep to solve crimes

Saturday, March 05, 2005 (07:10:48)
John Mallery says his current job as a computer forensic expert has some parallels to his former calling as a comedian, juggler and knife thrower. "I've thrown knives around my wife.

Thursday, February 24, 2005 (09:38:55)
Neil Barrett gives some insight into how IT workers can help law enforcement and expert witnesses like himself when prosecuting cybercriminals.
