Interview With Christian Hummert, Director Of Digital Forensics, ZITiS Germany

Christian, tell us a bit about yourself and how you got into digital forensics.

Right now, I’m 40 years old. I studied computer science and philosophy when I was younger, before completing a post-graduate course (PhD) in bioinformatics. This led me to a job with the State Police of Thuringia, which is one of the federal states of Germany. I worked as an expert in digital forensics and analyzed lots of hard disks and phones.
