Whoa!! What an eye-opener and game changer! Looking forward to implementing this; so simple, yet so impactful!

U.S. Army

You are always prepared and professional; you’re engaging and relatable.

U.S. Air Force
GS-15 Program Manager

I’ve heard from several members of my team who found the course beneficial and learned several techniques to improve their communication with Senior Leaders. I believe the goal of the course was achieved, many personnel who are relatively new to communicating with Senior Leaders have learned to tailor their delivery for improved results.

U.S. Air Force
GS-15 Director of Cyberspace Operations

You presented an excellent brief, well spoken and easily understandable slides. Gave us a solid way forward.

U.S. Air Force
Program Manager

Your briefing was presented in a well thought out and aligned method tailored to the audience.

U.S. Army
Cybersecurity Specialist

Course was just right in length relative to content delivered. Very helpful workshop.

Children's Advocacy Center
Executive Director

I strategically put you on after lunch when people usually want to take a nap, because I know that you will keep the students riveted to their seats for one hour. You know your stuff and present it with clarity and passion. You are the highlight of the training for all who attend according to our evaluations. Most say they wish you could have spoken for two hours!

National District Attorneys Association
Senior Attorney

Every time you have presented it has been fantastic. The only complaint that has ever been registered against you in any of the seminars was that you were not given enough time.

National District Attorneys Association

You need to be given more time to speak on topics, because you have been the best speaker on the most relevant topics all week.

National District Attorneys Association

Awesome! Awesome again! Excellent presenter.

National District Attorneys Association
Senior Attorney

Thank you for presenting at the Unsafe Havens I conference in Chicago, Illinois. Your presentations on Technical and Legal Defenses, P2P Investigations, Emerging Issues with Forensic Evidence, Cell Phone Forensics, Tracking Wireless Technology, and Direct Examination of a Computer Forensic Expert were instrumental in making Unsafe Havens I a big success.

National District Attorneys Association
Senior Attorney

We would like to thank you for your dedication and commitment to the training of our prosecutors at Unsafe Havens I in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Feedback from prosecutor participants at this conference was uniformly positive. Several indicated that this was one of the best training courses that they ever attended.

Oregon Department of Justice
Chief Investigator

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a very professional presentation at the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) quarterly sharing meeting. ICAC member affiliates appreciated the time to share the how-to of setting up and operating a regional lab.

City Government
Deputy Chief of Police

We had a presentation for our city council and executive staff. Your instructor was poised, professional, and extremely competent. He presented in a manner that even those that are obviously less experienced in the world of computers and information technology can easily follow along. The presentation was powerful, informative, and in regards to the crimes against children in our community – shocking. He is quite obviously well educated, articulate, experienced, and has a passion for what he is doing.

National District Attorneys Association

This was one of the best courses I’ve attended. I feel comfortable with the motions and trial but wanted to know more about the forensics, forensic trial testimony and combating legal defenses. This course was very helpful to me.

Navy Federal Credit Union
Assistant Vice President

Again, really great stuff, and I only wish I’d come across this sooner. As it happens, I’m preparing my DF team for an audit of our DF lab – which includes lab management procedures. In searching for ways to structure lab management, I came across your course. Glad I did. Thanks!

Navy Federal Credit Union
Assistant Vice President

The Natsar “Creating a Digital Forensic Capability” course is exactly what I’d been looking for to help move our forensics program ahead. Excellent work and excellent content. Thanks!

Digital Forensic Use Case: Hacked Device

If a hacker was able to compromise your device there are several things they may be able to do. The capabilities of the hacker is driven by the sophistication of the malware, the stability of the device’s network connection, and any security software or devices that impair or remove the malware’s ability to function.

Executive Briefing: Log4j Vulnerability

At Natsar we are dedicated to helping executives and decision-makers understand cybersecurity. This post will provide a non-technical overview of the Log4j (also known as log4shell) vulnerability and provide a resource for executives to use when talking with their IT teams or Managed Service Providers (MSPs).

Making a Risk-Based IT Change Management Process

A key component to any successful and mature Information Technology (IT) team is a disciplined change control process.  Few things are more frustrating to a CIO than having a service affecting outage and not being able to immediately identify recent changes to the environment.
