Episode 200 – James Morrison – Cyber Crime / audio

cyber crime

James Morrison with the FBI Houston Division joins host Craig Price to discuss cyber crime. As a computer scientist, James has had to deal with many complex problems and solve many issues but nothing as mind boggling as Comicpalooza and Craig.  The two bravely sit down in the Houston heat and humidity to discuss ransomware, the importance of backing files up, why criminals are more interested in your medical records than files on your hard drive and what you can do to prevent problems in the future. It is all part of Comicpalooza’s Science-Fiction/Science-Faction educational track which happened in Houston June 17th through June 19th.  It was an amazing event and Craig even gives a quick rundown of the weekend where he had a surprise hosting assignment with actress Tara Reid! It’s a great way to celebrate 200 episodes.

Reality Check was a proud member of the 2016 Comicpalooza Podcast Partnership Program which arranged this interview and a few more to come.

Episode 83 – Ed Opperman – Digital Forensics / audio

Digital Forensics

Ed Opperman with Opperman Investigations, joins host Craig Price to discuss digital forensics. Digital forensics is the recovery and investigation of information found in digital devices and Ed’s company does just that. The world is full of sneaky people and not all of them are out doing the right things. Be it infidelity, cyber stalking or even email hacking, it often takes professionals like Ed to gather the digital evidence hidden away in smartphones, emails accounts and hard drives. Craig and Ed discuss how much information can be recovered from erased phones, how even people like the CIA Director David Petraeus can get caught, how Al-Qaeda communicates on free email accounts and even how crazy ex-girlfriends (or boyfriends) often hack into computers not to find evidence but to plant evidence! Yes, relationships can lead to some crazy, impulsive and possible illegal actions. Thankfully, Craig doesn’t have to worry about that with his wonderful and caring wife (she is listening, right?) 

Ed has also invented a method of Internet infidelity investigation that traces a persons email address to online dating personal ads, dating sites, social networks, porn site, cam site and escort site memberships. You can learn more about Ed at  http://www.EmailRevealer.com
