Recieved a great listerner call on Work/Life balance, then a follow up from the same caller.  This guy knows what he's talking about, and is very highly respected by his peers.  He works in a D.A.'s office for a major metro area, and keeps a flow chart on his office door regarding contacting him after hours; I've included it as this episode's artwork.Anyway, his comments made me think of Amber Schroader's comments, which were featured in Season 1 episode 8.  Amber is the CEO of Paraben Corporation, and a highly respected pioneer in digital evidence recovery, so I included her comments again in this episode too.Personally, as of late, I have begun to focus any free time on The Paul F. Compton Scholarship for Excellence in Digital Forensics.  At this stage I'm setting up the new corporation logistically and soliciting volunteers for the Advisory Board, who will help steer the future of the scholarship and assist with award selection annually.Links Related to this Episode:St. Vincent (Movie Trailer on YouTube)"Workers are rage quitting their jobs..." - www.businessinsider.comWhy the Anthony Bourdain voice cloning creeps people out - APNewsMilitary-grade spyware reportedly found on phones of journalists, activists - CNETAudacity Team - Clarification of Privacy PolicyThanks for listenting!  Keep being great & doing great things, my friends.  All the best, always!Support the show (
Cyber Security and Digital Evidence Acquisition & Analysis are two critical fields when it comes to our future, yet far too few undergraduate and graduate programs exist for the latter; specifically the fastest growing sub-discipline of the latter, Digital Multimedia Evidence.As a pioneer of Digital & Multimedia Forensics I've literally spent thousands upon thousands of hours critically reviewing horrific video, image and other digital evidence.  Child exploitation, homicides, terrorism, organized crime and more.  Some of the worst of the worst, from around the world.Courage. Commitment. Sacrifice. Humanity.I thought I could bottle it up, like my PTSD gifted by the U.S. Army.  Nope, nobody can, IMHO, at least not forever.  That's why I've created a memorial scholarship in honor of the two men that passed on their empathy, enormous hearts, and incredible courage to me; my brother and my dad (Jr. & Sr.). The Paul F. Compton Sholarship for Excellence in Digital ForensicsI'm so honored to be in this position. It wasn't easy. I couldn't retire from a single agency. I wasn't home when either of them passed away.Maybe when you can, you'll consider dropping a few bucks to support my dad & brother's legacy.We will be making DFIR & Forensic Multimedia Evidence Training more accessible & attainable for BOTH the public & private sectors. We will also...Set out to pay for one (1) 4-year BS and/or 2-year MS full-ride per year to leading institutions in the field, such as Marshall University.Promote the education & implementation of annual Mental Stress & Mental Health resources & evaluations in digital forensics.Agressively pursue accreditation for any/all certification programs related to DME.Pursue corporate & government sponsorship/recognition.Release a detailed report annually, as required by law for our anticipated Social Purpose Corporation (SPC) status.** NOTE: Currently registered as a sole proprietor in WA, with an asigned Federal EIN of  46-3092870We are also currently exploring adminstrative options regarding awarding of the funds with Marshall University.
