Kathy, you're Director, Digital Forensics and Incident Response at Gillware. Tell us more about your role – what does a typical day look like for you?
Each day I’m interacting with clients, whether it be scoping for a new case we’ll be working on together, giving updates on the progress of data processing and analysis, or discussing results. I will perform collections of laptops, cell phones, servers, or anything we can pull data from.
I process data and prepare it for either keyword searching or analysis. My favorite part of each day is getting to perform analysis, whether it be reviewing search query results or diving into a laptop or cell phone and putting together a timeline of activity.
