Digital forensics involves the recovery and analysis of data from different digital sources. Originally limited to computers, digital forensics quickly evolved to cover other type of devices capable of leaving digital footprints, such as mobile phones and tablets. As we transition into a digital economy, data is now stored and exchanged beyond physical devices as well as in the cloud – massive, centralized collection points operating via networks. This innovation makes it more difficult for law enforcement and intelligence agencies to collect relevant information to use as evidence during ongoing investigations. With the proliferation of new technologies such as cloud based services, as well as social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, investigators are facing the challenge of accessing, processing and analizing a constantly growing volume of digital information using traditional forensics techniques.
