Interview With Lodrina Cherne, Product Manager, Cybereason

Friday, August 02, 2019 (14:57:41)
Lodrina, tell us about yourself and how you first got started in digital forensics.

Growing up outside Silicon Valley during the first dot-com boom, I was always interested in technology and luckily had access to the early web and programming classes. While I didn’t know about forensics as a career when I was younger, I consumed anything computer-related in school and did content for websites and communities at AOL.

What I saw as a logical progression from my teenage interests led me to pursue computer science in college. While the logic and problem-solving side of CS fascinated me – cryptography remaining one of my favorite courses to this day – I became less interested in programming itself and took some time to figure out where in technical world would be the best fit for me career-wise.

Career Paths In Digital Forensics: Practical Applications

Wednesday, July 31, 2019 (13:52:56)
by Christa Miller, Forensic Focus

Whether you’re a college or university student trying to plot out your career, an experienced worker figuring out next steps, or a mentor seeking to help either one of them, you may be seeking to answer the question: what can I do in digital forensics?

The digital forensics profession has grown by leaps and bounds over the past three decades, and cybercrime’s proliferation means there’s no shortage of work. In the last ten years alone, mobile devices and the cloud both became evidence storage sources rivaling hard drives. The Internet of Things and artificial intelligence went from obscurity to widely deployed reality.

Looking back at our recap of the Techno Security and Digital Investigations Conference, we can see the number of options reflected in the presentations — and then some. As Doug Brush and Nathan Mousselli pointed out in their panel discussion on certifications at Techno Security, career paths are opening up today that didn’t even exist five or ten years ago.

A Magnet Forensics Webinar: Addressing The Challenges Of ICAC Investigations

Tuesday, July 30, 2019 (14:34:14)
Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) investigations can often take the biggest toll on law enforcement agencies. Between the disturbing situations these cases arise from, the sheer volume of evidence, and the lasting effects that exposure to Illicit Images of Children (IIOC) can have, there are a number of stress points that can have lasting repercussions for agencies and examiners in particular.

In this session, we’ll talk about some of the challenges presented by ICAC investigations and share how Magnet Forensics is working to help labs work through ICAC cases faster and recover defensible evidence while providing ways that promote officer wellness by minimizing over-exposure to IIOC.

Register here: https://www.magnetforensics.com/resources/addressing-the-challenges-of-icac-investigations-webinar-aug-1/.

If you can't attend the live session, a link to a recording will be emailed to registrants afterwards.
