Jan, how did you get started in computer forensics?

I decided to specialise in forensics after meeting a bunch of lads from the Hi-Tech Crime Unit at a conference in London in about 2002. For a start, they had all this groovy kit on their stand, which induced serious Gadget Envy. But when they described what they actually did, I was totally sold. I'd spent a long time in undercover investigations, so the idea of snooping around systems for dodgy deeds really appealed to me. I also jump at any chance to get my screwdrivers out and take stuff apart. It was a dream combination.


Can you tell us something about the type of work you do now?

I mostly do Corporate and Legal investigations. Largely, these involve fraud, IP theft and staff computer misuse though I have also turned up evidence of drug dealing and software piracy.   more ...

Professor Sammes, can you tell us something about your background and your current role?

By the greatest of good fortune, I was posted to Lincoln Laboratory at MIT in 70/71 and there I was tasked with developing the software that would bring the laboratory onto Arpanet as network node number 10. We had no appreciation then that this was just the beginning of what was to become the Internet.   more ...
