Ryan Purita of Totally Connected Security is one of the leading computer forensic experts in private practice in Canada. He is a Certified Information Systems Security Professional, holding one of the most advanced security qualifications in the world. Much of his daily work is an extension of a system administrator's activities. A good part of it involves the advanced use of open source tools, including several standard system tools. His work methods offer fresh perspectives on security, privacy issues and the relative merits of Windows and GNU/Linux -- to say nothing of a niche industry where open source is more than holding its own.
