Rich, tell us about how you first got into digital forensics, and the evolution you've seen in the field over the past 17 years. What has interested you most and kept you in the field?
I spent 22 years in law enforcement working for the Milford Police Department in Connecticut. It is here I was given the opportunity to take my passion for computers and focus it on digital investigations and forensic examinations.
In the late 90’s Milford started one of the first computer crime units in the state and I was selected to be the forensic examiner. I already had a little computer experience and at that time a little was a lot. From that point forward it was from within the LE community that I learned about digital forensics, with entities such as IACIS, SEARCH, and NW3C.
