Matt, you're a digital forensics analyst at Sytech. Tell us a bit about your role and what it involves.
My role at Sytech predominantly involves the extraction and analysis of embedded devices, such as mobile phones, tablets, satellite navigation systems, games consoles, unknown devices etc. The examinations I am involved in vary considerably and range from indecent images of children (IIOC) to providing assistance in murder investigations. Working for a private organisation, such as Sytech, allows me to experience both prosecution and defence based cases.
What first made you interested in digital forensics as a field?
It was the varied nature of the work accompanied by the opportunity to make a difference that attracted me to the field of Digital Forensics.
