Currently looking for remote DFIR work

All,

My current employer Cyfir LLC. announced they were laying off the entire security department. We are receiving no severance. I have included my bio, and please share it with anyone that may be looking for someone with my skill set.

This morning, I was informed that my role has succumbed to the economic impact of the pandemic. I’m currently available and seeking a role in digital forensics/IR or a role based research and findings in DFIR.

Thanks,

Dr. Stephen Roy Coston
