Episode 3: Meet Guest Speaker Bodo Meseke
By Ronald J. Coleman
Our third episode, “Cyber Breach Response”, features guest speakers Angeline Chen and Bodo Meseke. I asked our guests to “tell us a little bit about themselves, what they do and how they got there.” Bodo said:
“I’m a partner at EY, responsible for forensic technologies within GSA. But today is all about cyber response. And how did I come to this? So I started my career in the IT area within the German Federal Criminal Police Office, where I was part of the cybercrime unit. And as I always have been very interested in computer technology, for sure this was the right place for me to be. So, in the criminal police office, we did several investigations, and so IT security always was part of it. And I left the Federal Criminal Police Office after some years, did some work as a general IT security consultant, but then came back to the roots because I’m an IT forensics guy. It’s about analyzing digital evidence and finding out what happened, what crime was committed by using an IT device. Then I founded my own company, was different expert witnesses, a lot of work we did for law enforcement. But then I joined EY, as the whole team. And now as I said, I’m responsible for the forensic technologies, which means eDiscovery, forensic data analytics and cyber response. And for cyber response, I’m globally heading this for EY, coordinating the teams across the world helping our clients in case of a cyber breach.”
