Chasing cybercriminals across borders – the world of digital forensics

This week we speak with Danny Myburgh, a digital forensics expert and the managing Director of Cyanre - The Digital Forensic Lab. He was responsible for establishing the National Computer Crime Investigation Unit for the South African Police Service and was trained by the FBI and the French Police. We chat about the current state of the threat landscape and the vital role that digital forensics plays in the fight against cybercrime. In this episode we discuss: How the world of cybercrime has evolved since he first got into this business in the early 2000s How he conducts his investigations The challenges of dealing with crimes and criminals across borders What more needs to be done in terms of law enforcement and tracking down cybercriminals Some of the hairier situations he’s been in during his investigations What organisations should be doing to prepare for attacks and limit impact About Phishy Business Fed up with the same old cybersecurity stories? Come with us on a journey that explores the lesser-known side. Whether it’s social engineering, taking criminals to court or the journalists hunting down hackers — our new podcast series, Phishy Business, looks for new ways to think about cybersecurity. Mimecast’s very own Brian Pinnock and Alice Jeffery are joined by guests from a range of unique security specialisms.
