Heather, please tell us about your role as a Senior Instructor at SANS as well as a Forensic Scientist – what does your day-to-day routine look like?
As a Senior Instructor for SANS, I travel around the world to teach both FOR585, Advanced Mobile Forensics and FOR408, Windows Forensics Analysis about 10 times per year. I also teach online, which allows me to do my day job and spend two evenings a week teaching what I do all day. When I am not teaching, I am constantly testing new smartphone operating systems, apps and malware to see what is new, what the tools miss and methods for recovering the hard to find data. For FOR585, Advanced Smartphone Forensics, this is something that my co-authors and I do on a regular basis.
