Dr Kamil Reddy, Independent Consultant, South Africa

Saturday August 03, 2013 (00:46:32)   (2800 Reads)
Dr Kamil Reddy
Kamil, you’re currently an independent consultant in digital forensics – can you tell us more about your work and how you first became interested in the field?

My independent consulting has, to date, been predominantly in the fields of information security and privacy. I haven't had an opportunity yet to work directly in digital forensics as an independent consultant. Mostly my work in information privacy revolves around ensuring compliance with impending information privacy legislation in South Africa. This legislation is modelled around European Union information privacy law and mandates the use of generally accepted information security standards, such as ISO 27001/2. Thus, much of my work also involves providing consulting advice on the necessary information security controls.   more ...


Jim Grady, President, Cellebrite USA

Jim Grady, President, Cellebrite USA
Jim, please tell us a bit about yourself and your background before joining Cellebrite.

I´ve been involved in the wireless industry as an executive for over 20 years, both on the carrier side and the vendor side. Prior to Cellebrite, I was vice president and general manager at Bell Labs. I have an MBA from Harvard Business School and a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Maine.

You became CEO of Cellebrite USA, Inc. at the end of 2011. What prompted that move and what does your current role involve?

I felt drawn to this opportunity based not only on the growth of the market, but also the chance and the ability to help law enforcement and private sector investigators adapt more smoothly to the demands mobile technology places on their skills. As CEO of Cellebrite USA, I am responsible for the vision, strategies and people that drive business for the largest market in mobile forensics.   more ...

Dr Richard Overill
Richard, you’re currently a Senior Lecturer in Computer Science at KCL – can you tell us more about your role and how you entered academia?

Like much, perhaps most, of my life, it was purely serendipitous! I had finished the research for a PhD in computational quantum theory at the University of Leicester, and needed a job to support myself while I wrote up the thesis. I just happened to spot an advert for an Analyst-Programmer at King's College London in the trade press, applied and got the job. After a year the PhD was completed, but I was asked to stay on and contribute some teaching of programming and do some collaborative computational research. And when King's subsequently set up an academic Department of Computer Science (which has now become the Department of Informatics) it was the natural place for me to migrate to. Rather unenterprisingly, I've been here ever since!   more ...


Jim Kent, CEO EMEA, Nuix

Jim, you have an interesting background, having started in law enforcement and worked your way up the corporate ladder you now hold the senior position of CEO EMEA at Nuix. Please tell us more about that journey.

Actually I started out as an engineer designing and manufacturing fuel injection systems for cars. I did that for quite a few years before I decided to leave and become a policeman. I did two years of plodding the streets before going into undercover work, drugs squad and vice.

Whilst I was in CID in the late 1990s, a colleague and I built up one of the region’s first high-tech crime units – it started out with just a few desks and the office was about the size a cupboard.

After three or four years, the area of high-tech crime was booming and we were working through case after case but our backlog kept growing. I realised something had to change, and that was me. I met Alan Philips and Dan Haagman from 7Safe and worked with them to develop an ethical hacking training programme for the police. Then I joined them to build a forensic capability within 7Safe.   more ...


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 ...
