Devon Ackerman, Senior Director, Kroll

Devon Ackerman
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.   more ...

Victor Limongelli, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, AccessData

Victor Limongelli
Congratulations on being named CEO of AccessData. You previously served as President and CEO of Guidance. Why AccessData? Why now?

I’ve been in the industry since 2003, I’ve known – and competed against – AccessData for many years, and I long viewed FTK as one of the key products in forensics. After becoming Chairman in 2015, I had an opportunity to see the company up close, and when I was asked to take over as CEO I was very comfortable in the strength of the product set, the dedication of the employees worldwide, and the opportunity to grow the business. In particular, the AD Lab product struck me as the future of forensics, enabling scalability and collaboration that is not possible with the traditional, stand-alone forensics approach. That is a big focus of AccessData in 2017.   more ...

Jade Promhouse
Tell us a little bit about yourself and your role at Magnet Forensics.

My name is Jade Promhouse and I’m a software tester on the development team. I joined Magnet Forensics full time in 2016 after completing my degree in Computational Math. As a software tester, I try to mimic the customer experience and perspective as closely as possible, and test the latest bug fixes and features. I add my own unique perspective to this as well. In this way, I can test the software to see if it works as the customer would expect, and also provide feedback on features to the developers and product managers.   more ...
