Interview With Nick Sharples, Senior Solutions Consultant, Nuix

Monday, February 19, 2018 (13:24:50)
Nick, can you please tell us a bit about yourself and your background; what does a day in your life look like?

A ‘regular day in the office’ starts early, the alarm goes in my house at 5am so I can get to the gym for an hour before jumping on the train to London. I am relatively new at Nuix and I am still learning the different capabilities of each product, so I tend to use the time on the train to pick up a product I’ve not used before to see what it can do or how to install and configure it. I also use the time to catch up with emails from my colleagues in the Solutions Consultants (SC) Team, or brush up on my programming skills.

Techno Mode – The Fastest Way To Access Digital Evidence On Damaged SSDs

Monday, February 12, 2018 (08:48:34)
by Roman Morozov, NAND Data Recovery Tutor, ACE Lab

Recent statistics show that solid-state drives are getting a good share of the market of storage devices. And the popularity of SSDs is only expected to grow.

Digital forensic experts have to be prepared for this and are always looking for efficient ways of solving issues that may arise in their daily work. Almost all present-day SSDs have hardware data encryption. That’s why the chip-off method becomes useless for accessing the digital evidence on a damaged device. In this case, the Techno Mode is the only possible way to restore logical access to data on the SSD.
