David Spreadborough, International Trainer, Amped Software

David Spreadborough
David, can you tell us a bit about your role and what it involves?

I’m the international trainer for Amped Software. First of all, Amped Software is a digital image and video company and everything that we do has a forensic and scientific backing. It’s very easy to deal with an image or a video, but to deal with an image or a video forensically, with a scientific backing, requires a product to guarantee that everything a user does is forensically sound.

My history is that I was a police officer for 24 years; the last 12 years were spent purely doing CCTV and image investigations, mainly from CCTV. I left in 2015, upon the closure of the Forensic Imaging Unit.   more ...

Abdeslam Afras
Abdeslam, please tell us about the upcoming international roadshows from AccessData.

We’ve planned a series of international roadshows to share the details of our latest software release, AccessData 6.2, which helps users improve productivity and reduce backlog, leading to faster investigative results.

Our customers continue to face challenges in their work – data sets are getting larger, deadlines for collecting, analyzing and processing data in cases are tighter and tighter. New forms of data are constantly emerging as the result of the Internet of Things (IoT), new devices that rapidly produce data as well as new data repositories – like the cloud. All of these are impacting the ability to conduct investigations more efficiently and effectively and to identify the relevant data to prove their cases.   more ...

Peter Sommer
Peter, tell us a bit about yourself. What is your background and your current role?

I read law at Oxford and had a first career in book publishing. At that time although we all knew what a computer was most of us thought it unlikely that we would ever use one, let alone have so many in our houses that we lost count. I specialized in egg-head non-fiction. One of my authors was a research scientist at the National Physical Laboratory and wanted a guinea pig to see how far an “arts” graduate would cope with a computer. That started me off and fired my imagination. In a move to get a bit of practical electronics knowledge I took the amateur radio license exam, then a more difficult task than it is today.   more ...

Devon, tell us a bit about yourself. What's your background, and what's your current role?

My name is Devon Ackerman, and I am currently a Senior Director in Kroll’s Cyber Security and Investigations practice. In this role, I have leadership over an Incident Response team as well as client engagement responsibilities and hands-on investigations.

Prior to Kroll, I served as a Supervisory Special Agent and Senior Digital Forensic Examiner for the FBI. I began my career with the FBI back in 2006 and in 2008 entered the Academy to complete training as an FBI Special Agent. After graduation from the FBI Academy, I was assigned to North Carolina, or more specifically, the “Charlotte Division” of the FBI. I was initially assigned national security investigations and related matters that shared a cyber nexus, later gaining experience in cyber and DFIR matters across the board, to include traditional criminal matters.   more ...
