I am frequently asked how long I have been conducting digital forensic examinations. I conducted the very first computer crime investigations in the Houston Police Department in the early 1990’s and I have been seen phenomenal growth in our field. In the early days we would forensically copy floppy disks, now we’re dealing with servers with terabytes of storage. Regardless of the storage size, the fundamentals still remain the same.
Although I don’t need the “DOS Seizure Certification” any more, it’s fun to think back to those early days of emerging technology.
