He has a broad perspective and experience with technology in the real world having written network software for a very small company while supporting it at customers in the fortune 50.

Stephen says, "I have had the good fortune to see the IT and security worlds from a variety of perspectives. I have experienced the challenges of security practice on both a very small and very large scale. I very much enjoy technology and enjoy employing my knowledge hands-on. Teaching for SANS enables me to pass my knowledge and experience on to others while benefiting from my student?s unique experiences and perspectives?

He currently holds the GSEC, GICSP, GCIH, GCFA, GWAPT, GAWN and GXPN certifications


Kevin Ripa

An investigator at heart, Kevin Ripa bought his first computer as a tool for writing reports for his private investigation agency. As he worked through typical user issues, the "why" of what was going wrong in his machine kept him up at night. So Kevin turned his investigative skills toward his computer and quickly became fascinated by the world inside of it. Now a 25-year veteran of the digital investigations field, Kevin's enthusiasm has not waned: "IT security and digital forensics still inspire me every day, and I can't wait to wake up in the morning and get to work!"

Kevin currently serves as president of The Grayson Group of Companies, which consists of Computer Evidence Recovery, Pro Data Recovery Inc., and J.S. Kramer & Associates, Inc. He provides investigative services to various levels of law enforcement, Fortune 500 companies, and the legal community. He is past president of the Alberta Association of Private Investigators and a former member of the Canadian Department of National Defence, where he served in both foreign and domestic postings.

Kevin has assisted in many complex cyber-forensics and hacking response investigations around the world. He's a sought-after resource for his expertise in information technology investigations and frequently serves as an expert witness.

Kevin has designed, produced, hosted, and taught numerous industry-related courses, and has had over 100 speaking and training engagements with industry and law enforcement around the world. He has also authored dozens of articles, as well as chapters in a number of manuals, books, and training texts on the subjects of computer security and forensics. Kevin holds a number of industry certifications, including four GIAC certifications (GCFE, GCFA, GSEC, GISF), EnCase Certified Examiner, Certified Data Recovery Professional, and Licensed Private Investigator, and he previously held the Certified Penetration Tester and Certified Ethical Hacker certifications.
