I founded Carney Forensics over nine years ago and today am Chief Technology Officer and lead digital forensic examiner. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in architecture and media arts and sciences from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and was employed as a software developer, software architect, and chief technology officer for information technology companies in Massachusetts and Minnesota for over thirty years. Later I earned a Juris Doctor degree in law and dispute resolution from Mitchell Hamline School of Law and became licensed in federal and state courts in Minnesota and remain so today.
I am a faculty adviser for the Century College Cybersecurity, Virtualization and Forensics program in White Bear Lake, MN where I sit on the advisory board, guest teach, and supervise digital forensic student interns. I am a voting member of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences. And I am Treasurer of the Minnesota State Bar Association’s District #19.
I have presented nationally on mobile device forensics at the Department of Defense Cyber Crime Conference (DC3), the American Academy of Forensic Sciences annual conference, the Paraben Forensics Innovation Conference, and the Techno Security and Digital Forensics Conference. I have appeared on WCCO CBS Minnesota’s “Good Question” series many times to answer questions on digital forensics and cybersecurity.
I have presented scores of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) seminars on digital forensics and mobile cybersecurity in Minnesota for the Minnesota State Bar Association, the Hennepin County Bar Association, the Ramsey County Bar Association, Minnesota CLE, the Minnesota County Attorneys Association, the Minnesota Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the Minnesota Society of Criminal Justice, the Office of the Public Defender, the Innocence Project of Minnesota, the Minnesota Paralegal Association, and many law firms in Minnesota.
