Steve, can you tell us a bit about yourself and how you got into e-discovery and digital forensics?
Sure. I actually was a banker back in the mid 1980s and there was a financial crash. And from that, there was a quasi-governmental organization called the Resolution Trust Corp that was born, and I became an investigator for them. Our investigations back in those days were all paper-based.
But, around the early 90s, we started talking about electronically stored information. Obviously they were mainframe computers and things, but it became more and more normalized to start to deal with computer files instead of paper files.
