    The Great Resignation in DFIR

    The Great Resignation in DFIR

    In this episode, co-hosts Desi, Si, and Christa compare and contrast the concerns and pressures of the DFIR world vs. other industries. Starting with burnout as a function of increases in both cyber incidents and online crime, we also discuss:
    - The risks of backfilling gaps in cyber without computer science fundamentals.
    - More work and fewer resources leading to backlogs, which factor in burnout and resignations as well as actions like the UK barristers' strike.
    - The importance of mentorship, representation, and manager training to facilitate strong team dynamics and mitigate risks.

Some of the technical vagaries, including GPS, time zone, and Apple updates, that can affect both investigations and workshop planning are discussed, along with the importance of other disciplines (geekery) to digital forensics beyond digital forensics.

    Frontline Managed Services' Kyle Campbell on DFIR & E-Discovery Career Skills & Pathways

    Kyle Campbell, Vice-President of Litigation Support at Frontline Managed Services, joins Christa Miller to talk through the breakdown of silos between digital forensics, e-discovery, and incident response, and the continued increases in complexity and interconnectivity of data sources as well as the impact of data privacy laws and evolving case law on preservation and collection. To collaboratively solve problems and add value and insights to clients and courts in this landscape, e-discovery and digital forensics professionals need technical and communication skills in information governance, data privacy, and data security -- and the ability to explain them clearly and simply.
