Interview With Jad Saliba, Founder & CTO, Magnet Forensics

Wednesday, July 12, 2017 (08:36:56)
Jad, will you introduce yourself, tell us a little bit about who you are, what you do, and how you got here?

Sure. My name is Jad Saliba, I’m the founder and CTO of Magnet Forensics. Who I am – I’m a former law enforcement officer, started my career actually before that in the IT industry, and did a lot of that. Even as a teenager, I was just kind of curious, and trying to understand how things work and how to break them and what’s going on behind the scenes, but I always also had an interest in law enforcement and wanting to help people and do some exciting work. So I spent a bit of time in the IT industry but then left that to become a police officer, and did the general patrol work, in the car, no computer stuff.

Interview With Ashley Hernandez, Director Of Product Management, Guidance

Wednesday, July 05, 2017 (07:46:05)
First of all, when did you start in this field?

I started in the field of computer forensics when I was in college. But I started with Guidance about 13 years ago, in 2003. I’ve had many roles at Guidance. I started out actually in quality assurance, and then I worked in project management and training.

Can you tell us about the new products that Guidance has recently released?

Yeah, so we announced a couple of products – one is EnCase Mobile Investigator. EnCase Mobile Investigator is available for pre-sell, but it’s going to be available to Forensic customers and Endpoint Investigator customers. It’s really designed to review mobile acquisitions.

The Future Of ENF Systems

Tuesday, July 04, 2017 (07:37:19)
by James Zjalic

The subject of authentication is important across the entire digital forensic field and we as examiners have various weapons at our disposal in which to defend against the onslaught of manipulators, liars and charlatans. Authentication is frequently amongst the first steps in creating a robust chain of custody for evidence received and can also be an investigation in and of itself. In no field is this more evident than that of audio forensics, where the ubiquitous rise in consumer audio software has caused the proliferation of attempts at the removal or editing of digital evidence.

There are various techniques within audio forensics to authenticate a recording and many are borrowed from areas such as computer and image forensics. One method that is individual to audio forensics is that of ENF or Electric Network Frequency, or as sound engineers like to refer to it: ‘hum’.

Interview With Paul Shomo, Senior Technical Manager, Guidance Software

Monday, July 03, 2017 (09:42:08)
Tell us a bit about your role and what a typical day in your life looks like.

In 2006 Guidance had this new product research team that I was recruited into that was doing forward thinking research, new product launches, and they were just releasing the first incident response products, then they just did security alerts from sims, and then automated forensic response. So I ended up in there, and then I went on to manage and then architect cyber-security and forensic products for about eight years. Now I work with a lot of partners, scouting technology we can license into our product line. And I do a lot of writing. I’m a Dark Reading contributor and I’ve published recently in Security Week. So that’s my deal. That’s my background.
