What is your background and how did you get started with digital forensics?

In 2002, I had been a police officer in New Jersey for nine years when I joined the Union County High Technology Task Force (HTTF). I came from a detective position so I was immediately tasked with investigating computer crimes and interacting with online predators in an undercover role.

I usually start each day by checking emails on my laptop at home while having breakfast and trying to find out what the day's operational workload is likely to consist of.

Once in the office, as cliché as it sounds, it's true to say that every day is different. A "typical day” can vary from quality assurance meetings (implementation of ISO17025 and ISO17020 in line with the Forensic Science Regulator's requirements is a significant project for everybody in our sector at the moment), to balancing our resources against the demands of four police forces investigating a wide range of crime types.   more ...
