My name is Steve. I currently live in Austin TX and I’ve been working in the field of digital forensics and cyber incident response for over 20 years. I’m currently with KPMG Cyber and serve clients around the globe, responding to data breaches, ransomware, BEC, and various types of fraud investigations. I’m fluent in network protocols and architecture, multiple OSs (Windows, macOS, Linux, Solaris, *BSD, AIX, etc), and have used and abused most forensic software tools out there.
I regularly wear a software developer and reverse engineer hat, having written several applications and scripts over the years for wrangling various types of data considered to be relevant in investigations. Often called upon to reverse malware that we encounter during engagements, flexing IDA Pro, x64dbg, and other tools. Currently experimenting with Golang programming and reversing Go malware.
My past gigs:
– SunOS/Solaris server operations admin at UUNET
– Police officer with the Austin Police Department’s High Tech Crime Unit
– Sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps (0311 Infantry / 8531 Marksmanship Instructor)
