Hi everyone,

A suggestion which came out of the recent forum discussion on computer forensic magazines was that it might be nice to try and interview someone for the monthly newsletter.

If you think that sounds like a good idea, who would you like to see interviewed and what would you ask them?

I'm open to all (sensible) suggestions on this and interested to see what people think of the idea.

Cheers,

Jamie

IMHO, it's more an issue of "what" than "who" (or "whom"). I'd be more interested in hearing from someone that knows and works in the topic, than in someone who's just a big name in the field.

Things I'd like to hear about include going beyond "Nintendo" forensics, beyond hash/text searches into more detailed analysis, and cases in which such things have been instrumental in the outcome of court cases.

Not to toot my own horn, but I've been interviewed twice for the Cyberspeak Podcasts, and thoroughly enjoyed it both times…and gotten pretty positive reviews.

I think it would be cool to hear about new techniques or ways of doing things to solve common problems that computer forensics professionals come up against. Perhaps interviews with people who have experience in developing a new technique that makes the job more efficient or the developer of a new tool, for example.

Interviewing tool developers is pretty cool. I like background information that may not be important to most people. Things like what prompted them to develop a tool (besides no other tool to do the job - think scalpel when we had foremost ) or how they became involved with CF etc.

Im all for hearing from new people. David Sullivan would be good since we have tons of questions about getting a job etc. We could get an updated view of CF from a recruiters point of view.

One guy posted last week that had a graduate degree and couldnt get an interview.

Why Northcutt?

From SANS NewsBites Vol. 8 Num. 54

Stephen Northcutt founded the GIAC certification and currently serves
as President of the SANS Technology Institute, a post graduate level IT
Security College, www.sans.edu.

I think that could be an interesting interview.

I'd also nominate Eoghan Casey.

I agree with Eoghan. Re Stephen…why not interview someone who *does* forensics?

Since SANS has a forensics track and a certification for it, I think it might be interesting to hear how it was developed, how it is going, and if they have any plans for changes in the future.

I have been reading some very interesting articles regarding Corporate Forensic Readiness Planning. A recent author is Robert Rowlingson Ph.D.

Another one was by John Patzakis, the Chief Legal Officer at Guidance Software.
