Brian is a digital forensic analyst currently residing in the Baltimore, Maryland area. He has over 20 years of experience in the cyber security field, with 17 of those years focusing on digital forensics/incident response (DFIR), both in the United States Air Force and private sector. His initial exposure to the DFIR field occurred during a deployment to Mosul, Iraq in 2004-2005, when he served on a team that provided mobile device analytic information in support of tactical military operations. After his military service ended, he entered the private sector and has worked (globally) on a wide range of cases. His favorite aspect of the DFIR field is that it is always changing and evolving; and every case has unique problems, questions, and solutions.
