A term to describe digital forensic examiners. This term was originally created by BJ Lachner and has been popularized by Rob Lee of the SANS Institute. The term first came into public use on April 1st, 2007 on the Cyberspeak digital forensic podcast.
The term is sometimes used in the phrase "Lethal Forensicator" to describe elite forensicators.
An easy way to identify a lethal forensicator is to ask them to produce their SANS Institute’s Digital Forensics “Lethal Forensicator” Coin aka the RMO (Round Metal Object) which is awarded by the SANS Institute to select lethal forensicators
When I first started out in digital forensics, I was just doing Nintendo forensics. I've learned so much since then that I'm now a lethal forensicator.
