1. What is your favorite thing about coming to work every morning?

The People. If I’m going to spend a good chunk of my time at an office, I want to make sure my colleagues don’t just work hard, but have great stories to share, and are people I can make new stories with. As Partner Manager, I also get to engage with so many great and intelligent people from other companies, learning about different verticals and industries that touch data governance.

The Constant Learning. Data privacy, transparency, and record keeping are on more and more minds now. new regulations and rules are changing the landscape rapidly. It’s exciting to be at the forefront of technology that bridges data and policy.

2. What was your first job?  

Does lemonade stand count? Otherwise delivering flyers around the neighbourhood as a kid.

3. If you could be any animal, what would it be and why?

An elephant. Ever read Babar? He was an elephant that had some epic adventures. He travelled around the world on a hot air balloon.

4. What passions do you pursue outside of office hours?

I love exploring. Especially to places that are changing quickly. There’s so many places to see in the world and different cultures to learn from, and so little time to experience it all. Closer to home, I like exploring our local outdoors by hiking, biking, and paddling. There’s a ton of places to explore within just a few hours drive as well.

5. Vanilla or chocolate?

Cookies and Cream. Who says you can’t get the best of both worlds!

More Legal Lessons Learned: 5 Times Social Media Evidence Was Denied in Court

Digital content (like web pages, Facebook posts, and tweets) is increasingly being submitted as evidence during legal matters—but it isn’t always being admitted by courts. As with any other form of evidence, digital evidence needs to meet a certain standard in order to be deemed admissible—and in many cases this comes down to how the evidence was collected and authenticated. If the collection and authentication process wasn’t handled correctly—and the method employed didn’t prove authenticity beyond any reasonable doubt—the evidence typically would not be accepted.

Why You Should Use SHA-256 in Evidence Authentication

In a previous article, we discussed why hash values are crucial in evidence collection and digital forensics. Following on from that, it’s worth discussing why Pagefreezer specifically makes use of the SHA-256 hashing algorithm when applying a digital signature to one of our records.
