Team Leader/Senior Mobile Device Analyst

CCL Forensics

Team Leader/Senior Mobile Device Analyst: July 2010 - June 2012

Senior Mobile Device Analyst: Sept 2009 - July 2010

Mobile Device Analyst: Dec 2008 - Sept 2009

Initially my role was purely that of a digital forensics analyst conducting investigations into mobile phones, tablets, GPS devices and associated storage media. The role included on site work where investigations were incredibly time sensitive and the work sometimes had to be conducted in a covert manner. The onsite work included a large amount of forensic data collection from a multitude of sources ranging from a home PC to servers in data centers.

I then progressed on to lead the team of 20 mobile device analysts ensuring all work was completed on time, on budget and most importantly done in a forensically sound way.
Shared responsibility for recruiting new staff and devised and delivered a complete mobile device forensics training course to new recruits.
