Charlatans In Digital Forensics

by James Zjalic

There’s a topic that is rarely publicized in the world of digital forensics, but is well known to those within the field and stories are often traded between experts when they meet at conferences and conventions. That topic is charlatans.

In my eyes, there are 3 types of charlatan:

– The Innocent Charlatan: Those who do not have the required knowledge and/or skill, but have good intentions
– The Dark-Side Charlatan: Those that do have the required knowledge and/or skill, but are happy to place the value of money over the value of science
– The Nefarious Charlatan: A combination of the above, those who do not have the knowledge and/or skill and are only working within the field as a means to make as much money as possible.
