My practice is focused on cybersecurity, data privacy consulting, and digital forensics.
As a cybersecurity and privacy professional, I provide or oversee risk assessments and vulnerability assessments (including penetration testing), consulting on information security and privacy policies, and implementation of projects or programs to facilitate compliance with those policies and applicable regulations.
As a forensic investigator, I conduct examinations of and provide expert testimony regarding computer and server hard drives, mobile devices (phones and tablets), cell data localization records, and Internet evidence (e.g., Facebook, Web postings, etc.).
My expertise includes corporate fraud, labor disputes, domestic relations, child pornography investigations, the Adam Walsh Act, the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, electronic discovery, the work product doctrine, and the attorney client privilege. My experience is derived from legal, information technology, software engineering, regulatory compliance, risk management, and information security backgrounds. I am qualified to serve as a digital forensics examiner, expert witness, and court-appointed third-party neutral, and have extensive experience in litigation support, including electronic discovery, the Rules of Evidence, the Rules of Civil Procedure, motions practice, pre-trial practice, and appellate practice. Although I am admitted to the state bars of California and Wisconsin, I cannot serve in the role of counsel or provide legal advice while serving as an expert, and I am not licensed to practice law in any state other than California or Wisconsin.
I maintain professional credentials and certifications in the areas of digital forensics (CHFI No. ECC930566, CCFP No. 335034), information security (CISSP No. 335034), regulatory compliance (CSOXP No. 00185), and network engineering MCSE, MCP+i, No. 977426). I have been certified since 2006 on the LexisNexis CaseMap suite.
