Jad, can you tell us something about your background and how you became involved in digital forensics?
It all started when I was a teenager and first got exposed to computers and software. I immediately was drawn to understanding how things worked and began writing software to solve problems. In fact, at age 15 I sold a disk utility program that I developed to a Danish bank. After high school, I was formally educated in network security and computer science. After spending some time in the corporate world as a network administrator at a large software company I decided to follow my dream of becoming a police officer. I started out as a Constable and later joined the Tech Crime Unit as one of the forensic examiners. This was a dream job for me as I could marry my love for computers with my passion for policing.
