Summit Bound

January 2020, the last time I had work related travel, seems like an eon ago. Later that year I had planned my first attendance at the Magnet User Summit in Nashville. Then COVID entered the scene and every event going forward for me was remote only. Don’t get me wrong, I’m an introvert and being able to work from home in my fortress of solitude the past few years has been great. I even managed to present at Magnet Enterprise Pulse and the HTCIA International Summit, both remotely. Fast forward to the present and events are starting to open back up.

Getting the band back together

The Magnet User Summit in April will be supporting in-person and virtual attendance. After two years as virtual participant I’ll finally be able to attend in person. As it turns out I’ll be presenting at the conference as well! It’s taken me a few years to get here, but now I get to attend as a speaker (and and employee!)

You can register for the Magnet User Summit (in person or virtual) here:

I hope to see you there, be it virtual or in person. And feel free to track me down for Baker Street Forensics stickers if you’re there.

HTCIA International Conference

I had the fortunate opportunity of presenting to the 2021 HTCIA (High Tech Crime Investigators Association) this week. I’d originally hoped to attend in person but we’ve still got travel restrictions in place so it was virtual attendance for me. There was a lot of good speakers and content through the week (triggering my imposter syndrome more and more as the week went on) 😉 In the end I think it went off pretty well. Somehow I managed to see around the “screen sharing” label that for whatever reason (narrator: it was nerves) that I never dismissed.

I don’t know yet if the recordings will remain available after the conference, however I promised to share my slides from the event so if you’d like to review, head on over to the GitHub and grab a copy. While you’re there check out the main feature of my presentation – CSIRT-Collect.
