Golden G. Richard III is a computer security expert and a Fellow of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences, with over 35 years of practical experience in computer systems and computer security. He holds a TS/SCI security clearance and is currently Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the Louisiana State University and Associate Director for Cybersecurity at the Center for Computation and Technology (CCT).  His primary research interests are malware analysis, reverse engineering, digital forensics, memory forensics, and operating systems internals. Dr. Richard earned his B.S. in Computer Science from the University of New Orleans and M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from The Ohio State University. His first floppy drive cost $600 and required financing; despite that, he's still very much alive.
