Daily Blog #470: Unforseen impact of our work

Unforseen impact of our work in the field of hacking exposed by David Cowen

Hello Reader,
                Today I'm reflecting on something that hasn't happened to me in the 19 years I've been doing digital forensics. A defendant in a civil lawsuit committed suicide and I was the expert for the plaintiff. I've seen a lot of people whose choices have left them in different positions of distress but this is the first time I've had one who went as far as to end their lives because of it.

So take a second to remember that the data you are analyzing belongs to a person and sometimes they have more problems than you know about.
