Raphael Bousquet
Raphael, tell us about how you first got into digital forensics, and the evolution you've seen in the field since you founded ADF Solutions.

My background is in computer science. I discovered computers at a very young age and have been fascinated by them ever since. 17 years ago, I was working on a technology capable of finding visual similarities between pictures. This technology was used by law enforcement and intelligence analysts on cases that dealt with large amounts of pictures.   more ...

Eric, when we interviewed you last year, you'd just come on board with Griffeye as Technical Liaison to law enforcement. What has the past year in this role taught you, and based on these lessons, where are you taking your role in the coming year?

If this last year has taught me anything, it is that everyone who works CSAM related investigations are the same, all over the world. These are all dedicated, passionate people who want to help, who are eager to help save children and willing to do so at the potential expense of their own mental health. Everywhere in the world, there are huge backlogs and cases that sit for too long due to short staffing, low budgets and inferior tools. It has also taught me that there are large numbers of investigators in this field that are still using tools that just aren’t designed for this type of work. I feel so happy to show them Griffeye Analyze DI, because I know it will do for them what it did for me, keep them in this fight longer and protect their mental health.   more ...

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 ...
