Security Consultant, Computer Forensic Examiner (CFE)
Ms. Lambert retired from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) after serving almost 43 years as a Professional Support Employee in the Dallas Field Office. For the last 17 years of her career, Ms Lambert served as a Computer Forensic Examiner (CFE) and ultimately paved the way for future professional support employees to enter this relatively new scientific discipline. She became the first full-time professional support employee certified by the FBI Laboratory's Computer Analysis Response Team (CART) to perform computer forensic examinations in an FBI Field Office.
Prior to becoming a member of the CART, Ms Lambert served as a Computer Specialist involved in direct IT support for over 500 FBI and Task Force employees and some 350 computer systems operating in an integrated network environment.
In April 2000 the Dallas FBI Office, in conjunction with local law enforcement agencies, formed the North Texas Regional Computer Forensics Laboratory (NTRCFL). This joint effort between local, state and federal law enforcement was designed to focus limited computer forensics resources to battle the ever-increasing cyber crime in the North Texas region as well as Texas and surrounding states. Ms Lambert was instrumental in the creation of this crime lab and served as one of three Team Leaders in the NTRCFL.
Ms. Lambert has extensive experience with Microsoft Windows operating systems, Linux/Unix operating systems, as well as Macintosh operating systems. Her capabilities include system backups; data recovery and data mining. Ms Lambert has strong analytical skills, excellent diagnostic skills, excellent problem solving skills and ability to work well within teams and foster team building.
