Lee Reiber, Global Director of Mobile Forensics, AccessData

Lee Reiber
Lee, you previously worked in law enforcement and were the CEO of a prominent mobile phone training company. Can you tell us more about your background and how you came to work for AccessData?

I worked in law enforcement for almost 15 years, both as a patrol officer and forensic examiner. I spent the majority of my career as a forensic examiner starting with computer forensics and ultimately moved into only mobile device forensics. I began to do a bit of R/D on mobile devices, developed some software and befriended Karl Sonnenberg. Karl owned Mobile Forensics Inc (MFI) initially and after working as an instructor I became the owner of MFI. MFI was starting to really gain steam late in 2008 especially in the federal space; training examiners from all branches of the government. The training of these types of groups caught the eye of AccessData, who had a stellar computer forensic training group, but lacked training or knowledge of the mobile device realm. So, in 2009 I was approached to merge my training company with AccessData which I initially turned down. A short time later I was again approached and agreed to terms to move the MFI training curriculum into the AccessData fold.   more ...

Robert Bond, Product Marketing Manager, Guidance Software

Robert Bond
Robert, please tell us a little about yourself and your role at Guidance Software

I’m the new Product Marketing Manager of Forensic Solutions which includes EnCase Forensic, Encase Portable and Tableau products.

I have been in marketing for over 15 years with technology brands like Hewlett Packard, Kodak, and most recently in e-Discovery with Ricoh Legal.

Version 7 of EnCase introduced significant changes, the reaction to some of which was mixed within the forensic community. What kind of feedback did you receive from users?

For our customers who have been using EnCase, the new look of Version 7 was a bit of a transition and took some adjustment. For new users however, the interface is similar to the look and feel of other popular programs so we’ve seen the learning curve for users new to the software become shorter.   more ...

Eddie Sheehy, CEO, Nuix

Eddie Sheehy
Eddie, can you tell us something about your background and your current role as CEO of Nuix?

I joined Nuix as CEO in 2006 after working for quite a few high-growth finance and technology businesses. What I loved about Nuix was the precise detail the software could expose about the information it indexed. Having that degree of detail at scale could make a huge difference to the way an investigation played out.

After about a year with Nuix, it became clear to me we couldn’t take on Access Data and Guidance directly –they owned the forensic investigation market. So we expanded into eDiscovery, and later information governance, as a way of growing the business. In 2011, having reached a more tenable scale, we decided to go back into investigations. That has been one of the most satisfying aspects of my time at Nuix.   more ...

Lindy Sheppard, F3 (First Forensic Forum) Secretary

Lindy, can you tell us a bit about your background and how you entered the world of forensic computing?

My vital statistics are: divorced, two children (son and daughter – in that order), one grandson and three granddaughters (not in that order)!

My working life has been in administration and management and since my late teens I have worked in some interesting industries and with some (let’s call them) quite unique people! Prior to working in digital forensics I think the job which offered the most ‘surprises’ was whilst I was working as a relief manager for two breweries. It involved my taking over hotels and public houses in London and across Southern England whilst the landlords took their holiday or whilst there was a gap between tenancies. I looked after some amazing places; one funny incident was to arrive at a big hotel/public house in Salisbury to find that there were not only paying guests staying and two bars to run, there was also a beer garden, a restaurant and the landlord’s two dogs, two cats and his children’s rabbits to care for. “Oh!” says the landlord as they are about to drive away, “one of the dogs had puppies the day before yesterday, you’ll be OK won’t you?” And then off they went. What you might call, a varied occupation.   more ...

Philip Anderson, Northumbria University

Philip Anderson
Philip, can you tell us something about your background and why you decided to teach digital forensics?

I graduated from Northumbria University with a BSc (Hons) in Business Information Technology in 1997 and gained an MSc in Distance Education with Athabasca University, Canada by distance learning in 2008.

After I graduated I started working at Northumbria University in a number of different IT Support/Developer roles for different departments within Northumbria University before becoming a Lecturer in 2001. I started teaching programming and also web design and development modules. It was in 2004 and 2005 alongside colleagues that we developed the undergraduate Computer Forensic degree. Once validated and in its first year I naturally changed to teach computer forensic modules (and more) as the degree progressed.   more ...
