This page categorizes and provides links to some of my articles. (Don't forget to also see about my books, which are summarized here ("Cybercrime Investigations", and "Cybersecurity for the Home and Office").
I have written a number of articles since leaving government on several topics, including cybercrime, cybersecurity, virtual currency (digital currency or cryptocurrency), money laundering, and more. Some of the articles are older, and remember that laws and circumstances change, and these articles are not tailored for you.
Recently I have started posting shorter articles on Medium.com which I also reproduce on this site. That allows me to organize and present my thoughts quickly and have them available for my own reference, or for students or clients.
