Jad Saliba, Founder and CTO, JADsoftware

Jad Saliba
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 ...

Scott Burkeman
Scott is a Director at Warner Scott Recruitment in London, specialising in computer forensics recruitment throughout the UK and abroad.

Can you tell us something about your background? How did Warner Scott Recruitment come into being?

I have been involved in Forensic Technology and Fraud recruitment for over a decade, working for an international recruitment firm and more recently with Warner Scott. I initially began placing Senior Forensic Accounting professionals prior to the boom in Computer Forensics. Many of my clients were looking to develop Computer Forensic teams from scratch and asked me to get involved in the recruitment of Forensic Technology candidates to assist in their growth plans. Since then, the rest is history!

Warner Scott Recruitment was set up in 2006 as a specialist recruitment consultancy with the vision of developing long-standing, meaningful relationships with both our candidates and clients. We have a strong focus on the Computer Forensic and eDiscovery market and are one of only a handful of specialist consultancies that have a dedicated team focusing in this area.   more ...


Ben Findlay, North Yorkshire Police Hi Tech Crime Unit

Friday February 17, 2012 (21:30:04)   (1596 Reads)
Ben is a civilian investigator working for the Hi Tech Crime Unit of North Yorkshire Police in the UK.

Can you tell us something about your background? Why did you decide to work in the field of digital forensics?

Digital forensics is something I came to by chance, really. Upon finishing my A levels, I went off to university to read medicine. After 2 years doing that, I came to the conclusion that my calling was elsewhere. I moved back home and enrolled at my local university on an Applied Science and Forensic Investigation course. It was during this time that I was introduced to Forensic Computing. During a final year group-based module called 'Crime Scene to Court' we were exposed to practical forensic processes at every step of the investigation, including some digital forensic investigation. Also, as part of the lectures supporting this module, there were a few on forensic computing and they really caught my interest. In fact, so much so that I applied to get on the MSc program shortly afterwards.   more ...

George, can you tell us something about your background? Why did you decide to work in this field?

George Chlapoutakis: I have been involved with computers and computer programming for as long as I can remember, since my primary school days in the early 80s when I was first taught LOGO and BASIC on an Amstrad CPC6128. When the Internet in Greece moved away from the few BBS and started gaining ground in Greece, during the mid-90s, my hours-long wanderings soon led me to the field of Network Security which I chose to specialise in (and, incidentally, to a series of lectures on "What happens to a household's phone bill when you spend 8-12 hours on the Internet" as well).

In my BSc in Computer Science degree, by which time I was already quite well versed in Network Security research, development & consultancy, I started specialising in Intrusion Detection & Artificial Intelligence (Artificial Neural Networks, specifically) as my final-year project, and in my EU Funded MSc in Internet Engineering I took this specialisation a step further by adding Bayesian Inference & Forecasting to the mix.   more ...
