Andrew McDonnell, Regional Forensic CCTV Manager, West Yorkshire Police

Monday January 14, 2019 (09:25:51)   (395 Reads)
Andrew McDonnell
Andy, you're Regional CCTV Manager for a forensic laboratory in Yorkshire & the Humber. Tell us about your role: what does a typical day in your life look like?

I usually start each day by checking emails on my laptop at home while having breakfast and trying to find out what the day's operational workload is likely to consist of.

Once in the office, as cliché as it sounds, it's true to say that every day is different. A "typical day” can vary from quality assurance meetings (implementation of ISO17025 and ISO17020 in line with the Forensic Science Regulator's requirements is a significant project for everybody in our sector at the moment), to balancing our resources against the demands of four police forces investigating a wide range of crime types.   more ...

Simon Crawley
What is your background and how did you first come into contact with MSAB?

I was a Police Sergeant with the Met Police, deployed in Counter Terrorism Intelligence gathering, based at a major airport, with a Masters in Forensic Computing and CyberCrime Investigations. We first started looking into digital forensics in 2009. Due to the power used – Sch7 TACT 2000 - we could not afford any delay in getting the data out of any device Sch7 of TACT only allowed us to have the device for 9 hours (now only 6 hours), after which we had to return the device.   more ...

Dmitry Postrigan
In 2018 Atola Technology celebrates 15 years in business. Back in Atola’s formative years, it was your technical expertise that lay the foundation of the company’s success. Today do you consider yourself a tech guy or an idea guy?

Yes, at first I was a tech professional who generated ideas and enjoyed working on them. In fact, when in 2003 I, along with Fedir Nepyivoda co-founded Atola, there was no business plan behind it. However, we had big ambitions with regards to the technology we wanted to develop. And when you are such a small team, there is a very short distance between an idea and its implementation. There was even a time when I came up with this great new concept in the morning, and we had it fully realized by the end of the day.   more ...

In your role as Atola’s CTO you manage product development and coordinate the work of the ever-growing team of engineers. You're also involved in liaising with customers, market analysis and a whole range of other activities. Which part of your job do you regard as the most important and the most challenging?

This one is very easy to answer. Managing product development is my number one priority due to both the importance and the complexity of it.   more ...

In my studies in Forensic Audit and Accounting I completed a module in Computer Forensics and Crime Investigation.   more ...
