Golden G. Richard III
Golden, can you tell us something about your background and why you decided to teach digital forensics?

I studied computer science at the University of New Orleans, then went to Ohio State to get an M.S. and Ph.D. My evil plan to try to return to New Orleans worked, when a job opening at UNO appeared just as I was finishing up at Ohio State. I made a single job application (which slightly annoyed my advisor) and got the job.

I've been teaching at UNO since 1994. I've been "hacking" (in the positive sense of the word) since I was about 13--that's 35 years ago, although I don't really feel that old. Yet. I've always been interested in operating systems internals, filesystems, etc. When I met some people around 2001 that were starting a digital forensics conference, I realized that there could be a formal point and a focus for my tinkering. I started doing formal research in digital forensics around 2002 or so and classes in digital forensics at the University of New Orleans followed around 2003.   more ...

John Patzakis, Founder and CEO of X1 Discovery

John Patzakis
John, the last time you were interviewed at Forensic Focus you were the Vice Chairman and Chief Legal Officer at Guidance Software. Now you're the founder and CEO of X1 Discovery - tell us about that move.

I am proud to have been a co-founder and part of the senior team at Guidance Software for ten years. The early days at Guidance were exciting as we sowed new fields, just as we are doing now at X1 Discovery. At Guidance, we first pioneered Windows-based forensics, which was the new paradigm and represented an order of magnitude improvement over Dos-based forensics. Then circa 2004, we introduced and championed the concept of enterprise in-house eDiscovery, a strategy that ended up being Guidance’s main force of growth leading to our IPO in 2006.   more ...

Noreen Tehrani, Applied Trauma Psychologist, NTA

Can you tell us something about your background and why you decided to work in the field of applied trauma psychology?

I have had a very mixed career; I have worked in medical research, as a retail operations director, property development, Head of a counselling service and running my own company. I think that the fact that I have had lots of experience doing different things has been really helpful to me. Although I love research, at heart I am a practitioner and enjoy working with people and organisations to help them to have happy and healthy lives.

I don’t think that I set out to be an applied trauma psychologist – it was just that the work was interesting and I could see that it helped people deal with difficult issues.   more ...

Jad Saliba, Founder and CTO, JADsoftware

Jad, can you tell us something about your background and how you became involved in digital forensics?

It all started when I was a teenager and first got exposed to computers and software. I immediately was drawn to understanding how things worked and began writing software to solve problems. In fact, at age 15 I sold a disk utility program that I developed to a Danish bank. After high school, I was formally educated in network security and computer science.

After spending some time in the corporate world as a network administrator at a large software company I decided to follow my dream of becoming a police officer. I started out as a Constable and later joined the Tech Crime Unit as one of the forensic examiners. This was a dream job for me as I could marry my love for computers with my passion for policing.   more ...
