Wuff, wuff. My name is Arnie Pupsegger. I work 5 days a week for NicoGroup Data Recovery and Forensics in Belfast. As a puppy I worked my way up through the chain of command and 3 years in I’m the Manager for our Complaints Department & a GDPR security Specialist. I take my job very serious and protect our customers recovered data as good as I can. You can bring me treats, but I cannot be bribed with treats.

I’ve been caught sleeping on the job several time but don’t be fooled I can hear everything that goes on in the office. Also, no dignity in this picture.

Early afternoon power nap to make sure I have the strenght to walk down the stairs. Work hard, sleep hard.


Here I’m protecting our customers hard drives stacked up  to the right.

Also, I signed up NicoGroup Data Recovery with the ICO as a Data Handler and Data Processor.

Getting ready for my next power nap after guarding customer data for a while.
