Presenter

Having left corporate IT as the National Systems Administrator for Shell Oil (ARB) some 20 years ago, Mr Pedersen opened his own company in the IT maintenance and support space. Growing from simple beginnings the company evolved to employing 20 staff members between its Cape Town and Johannesburg offices catering to maintenance and infrastructure requirements of the small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) market.

Early in the company’s evolution, it became active in the data recovery market, which ultimately evolved to what is now the company’s Digital Forensics division. Mr Pedersen’s early engagements with companies, such as Cellebrite and Magnet have ensured that the company has at all times maintained a reputation for the best of breed technologies.

Mr Pedersen tends to focus much of his time on the management of investigations within the company and developing Open-Source Intelligence paths and tools to enhance data collection and analysis abilities. He has a CFE and is a Certified Cyber Crime Investigator. He is the author of The Investigators Guide to Open-Source Intelligence and a regular speaker and lecturer on both OsInt and digital forensics.
