State Hires Data Theft Analyst
Tucked away in a nondescript downtown office building, Matthew Curtin’s forensic computing company,Interhack, makes and breaks the codes that keep electronic information safe.
Curtin’s newest challenge is helping Ohio determine exactly what data was exposed after a backup computer storage device was stolen out of a car June Tenth. The device contained tens of thousands of payroll, vendor and benefits records.
Curtin says he’s undaunted by the assignment. He built Interhack from a self-funded research group in 1997 to a for-profit company specializing in data encryption, digital rights and electronic privacy.
Curtin is also a lecturer, author and has served as an expert witness in computer cases. (Copyright 2007 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
