Interview With Devon Ackerman, Senior Director, Kroll

Tuesday, March 14, 2017 (11:34:32)
Devon, tell us a bit about yourself. What's your background, and what's your current role?

My name is Devon Ackerman, and I am currently a Senior Director in Kroll’s Cyber Security and Investigations practice. In this role, I have leadership over an Incident Response team as well as client engagement responsibilities and hands-on investigations.

Prior to Kroll, I served as a Supervisory Special Agent and Senior Digital Forensic Examiner for the FBI. I began my career with the FBI back in 2006 and in 2008 entered the Academy to complete training as an FBI Special Agent. After graduation from the FBI Academy, I was assigned to North Carolina, or more specifically, the “Charlotte Division” of the FBI. I was initially assigned national security investigations and related matters that shared a cyber nexus, later gaining experience in cyber and DFIR matters across the board, to include traditional criminal matters.
