Email Richard at: richard.leickly @ email.edcc.edu
Richard is a data professional and a co-founder of a data recovery company. He has twenty-five years of experience in applying computing technology, scientific knowledge and methods, and mathematics and statistics, to scientific problems. As a software and database developer, researcher, and data analyst, Richard has worked with statisticians and scientists at the University of Washington and at the US Department of State’s Office of Marine Conservation.
Richard has master’s degrees in mathematics and oceanography, and has done graduate research in the biological sciences. He studied information security and network engineering at the University of Washington. Richard trained in digital forensics and in information security at Edmonds Community College under Steve Hailey and Mike Andrew. He has several information systems certifications, including Certified Data Recovery Expert, Certified Hacking Forensic Investigator, Certified Incident Handler, and Certified Ethical Hacker.
As an instructor, Richard has taught advanced data recovery methods to digital forensic examiners, security professionals, and law enforcement personnel in the Computer Technology Investigators Network (CTIN), in the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA), in the Western Regional Counterdrug Training Center, and in the Washington Chapter of the High Tech Crime Investigative Association (HTCIA). Richard is a member of ISSA, CTIN, InfraGard, and the HTCIA. He currently serves as secretary for the Washington chapter of the HTCIA.
Richard began lecturing on data recovery topics at Edmonds Community College in 2012. In 2013, he was asked by Steve Hailey and Elliot Stern—Dean of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM)—to develop an original competency-based curriculum for the class that featured hands-on training using state-of-the-art data recovery tools. Subsequently, upon Steve’s recommendation and the success of the curriculum, he joined the faculty at Edmonds Community College as an instructor for Advanced Data Recovery. In 2014, Richard began teaching Digital Forensics. Richard participates in the college’s STEM education programs.
As a data recovery expert, Richard has recovered forensic data from damaged storage devices for the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Defense, and the Snohomish, Mount Vernon, and Seattle Police departments. He has recovered video, graphics, and financial data for Edmonds Community College, and for The International Association of Computer Investigative Specialists. He developed data recovery protocols and triage flowcharts for the Edmonds Community College students involved in the recovery of data from storage devices pulled from the debris of the 2014 Oso, Washington mudslide.
As a data scientist interested in the intersection of digital forensics, data recovery, and scientific methods, Richard conducts research in the ways that advanced data recovery tools can be applied to digital forensics problems, and makes his findings available to the digital forensics community. He is a co-author on the white paper: Applications of Data Recovery Tools to Digital Forensics: Analyzing the Host Protected Area with the PC-3000.
Richard has worked extensively with spatial data, focusing on its representational, computational, and statistical challenges. For example, to determine which of several hundred oceanic conservation regions thousands of geographically located observations were located, he created a database of polygonal regions, and developed a program that computed the winding number of each candidate region. He has developed geospatial databases in SQL Server for oceanic data, and has implemented them with ASP.NET, C#, and with Geographical Information Systems (GIS). Investigations into the covariance of spatial data resulted in the paper A test for spatially correlated data: an alternative to the traditional t-test, of which he is a co-author.
As a SQL Server database developer and Windows Server administrator, Richard worked with a diverse team of engineers to test the transcontinental railroad's networked communication system developed for the Positive Train Control System mandated by the US government in the wake of the Chatsworth train collision. On this project, he administered several Windows Servers and developed SQL Server databases, reports, and analytical programs for the data collected from the tests. He teaches database technology and programming for Everett Community College’s SQL Server Developer Certificate.
