Christian Hummert
Christian, tell us a bit about yourself and how you got into digital forensics.

Right now, I’m 40 years old. I studied computer science and philosophy when I was younger, before completing a post-graduate course (PhD) in bioinformatics. This led me to a job with the State Police of Thuringia, which is one of the federal states of Germany. I worked as an expert in digital forensics and analyzed lots of hard disks and phones. Later I concentrated on the forensics of embedded devices, especially in car forensics.   more ...

Guillermo Román Ferrero works as an Incident Response Expert for a Computer Security Incident Response Team. He is also a prolific author with his Follow the White Rabbit blog. Mr. Ferrero tried Belkasoft's digital forensics solutions recently and kindly agreed to share his experience and thoughts with us.

Guillermo, how did you become interested in digital forensics?

I started studying digital forensics when I was still at university with a specific course on the matter. I found it very interesting to be able to investigate what an attacker has done to a system and the different sources of information you can find in any modern computer or almost any other digital system.   more ...


Nicole Odom, Forensic Scientist, Virginia Department Of Forensic Science

Nicole Odom
Nicole, you started out in chemistry and biological sciences before moving from orthopedics to digital forensics. What prompted you to pivot into the cyber world?

I actually get asked that question quite frequently, as my background has a little bit of everything; however, all of my experiences are centered on some type of science. I have always enjoyed researching and building from small ideas, so I knew that I wanted to pursue science in my undergraduate studies. Chemistry was the most inviting because it was so hands-on, and I knew I could focus on something I really enjoyed while taking the extra classes that would allow me to pursue the medical sciences. Once I graduated, I looked for a job in medical research and got the opportunity to experience the human-related aspect; however, I quickly realized that I wanted to go back to school and pursue a degree that allowed me to work in a setting where every day is different within the lab. It was actually a friend who told me that I should look into the forensic sciences because he felt like it was right up my alley, and I’m so grateful for his push.   more ...

Scott, can you tell us a little about yourself, your role at HealthFirst and how you came to work in digital forensics?

I have worked in cyber defense for the last two decades and have witnessed the changing threat landscape and the ever-evolving and improving toolset. In the last five years I can actually feel positive about detecting and avoiding complex incidents, which cost corporations millions in lost revenue and fines.   more ...
