Jad Saliba
Jad, will you introduce yourself, tell us a little bit about who you are, what you do, and how you got here?

Sure. My name is Jad Saliba, I’m the founder and CTO of Magnet Forensics. Who I am – I’m a former law enforcement officer, started my career actually before that in the IT industry, and did a lot of that. Even as a teenager, I was just kind of curious, and trying to understand how things work and how to break them and what’s going on behind the scenes, but I always also had an interest in law enforcement and wanting to help people and do some exciting work. So I spent a bit of time in the IT industry but then left that to become a police officer, and did the general patrol work, in the car, no computer stuff.   more ...

Ashley Hernandez
First of all, when did you start in this field?

I started in the field of computer forensics when I was in college. But I started with Guidance about 13 years ago, in 2003. I’ve had many roles at Guidance. I started out actually in quality assurance, and then I worked in project management and training.   more ...

Tell us a bit about your role and what a typical day in your life looks like.

In 2006 Guidance had this new product research team that I was recruited into that was doing forward thinking research, new product launches, and they were just releasing the first incident response products, then they just did security alerts from sims, and then automated forensic response. So I ended up in there, and then I went on to manage and then architect cyber-security and forensic products for about eight years. Now I work with a lot of partners, scouting technology we can license into our product line. And I do a lot of writing. I’m a Dark Reading contributor and I’ve published recently in Security Week. So that’s my deal. That’s my background.   more ...

Edewede Oriwoh, E-Commerce Security Engineering And Independent Cyber-Physical Security Researcher

Edewede, you spent some time as a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Bedfordshire. What was your area of study, and what first sparked your interest in it?

My research involved investigating security threats in Smart Homes (SH) and developing an anomaly detection framework and a presence detection model for Smart Homes. It was clear in the early stages of my research that security was (and this is sometimes the case with major technological developments) not quite prominent in discussions and developments around the IoT. In recognition of the importance of the security within SH, I developed the concept of a Cyber-physically secure “Happy Home” which is a baseline security model in which all the elements in a SH are at their most secure state. These elements are a set of attributes (or features) which can be used to build a “Happy Home” - or the equivalent for any other Cyber-physical environment. Deviations from this baseline can be used to identify anomalies in the overall SH system.   more ...
