Video: Hansken Community

Digital data becomes increasingly important in criminal cases. All international law enforcement agencies, governments and security agencies have to deal with the rapid developments. To keep up with all movements and new insights and needs, we not only have to work with a proper platform, but maybe even more important: we need to work together.

In the Hansken Community we combine the two: an up-to-date software platform together with a collaboration between the platform users. In this animation you can see how we do this.

In this animation video a voice-over explains what the Hansken Community is, why it is established and how it works in practice. The story is supported with colorful animations.

On a white screen the blue outlines of the elephant Hansken logo appears.

VOICE-OVER: "Crime-fighting increasingly depends on digital evidence, next to physical traces such as fingerprints, bullets and DNA material. Investigations become increasingly challenging because of the rapidly growing volume of data, devices types and applications. To keep pace with these ongoing developments it is vital that law enforcement agencies bundle their expertise and join forces to deepen digital forensic knowledge. 

But how do we do this?

Our solution? The Hansken Community. 
The Community enables partners to exchange forensic knowledge and share it on the Hansken forensic data analysis platform. The platform makes large volumes of data accessible, searchable and insightful for users of every technical level.
The international Hansken Community is for and by law enforcement and intelligence agencies, and therefore a nonprofit collaboration. The community collaborates with the Public Prosecution Services and the Digital Forensic academic community. Together, the partners determine the platform’s priorities and define its future course.

How does it work? 

The Hansken Community provides an open platform where software can be developed, shared and deployed immediately. There are sub-communities where members collaborate on specific plug-ins. These are available in a shared Hansken app store and can be used directly in ongoing cases by all members.
The Community offers a Portal where users can connect and exchange information. The Portal also offers Hansken Academy materials and links to the Hansken practicing environment. These facilities provide new users with quick, effective training, and they support experienced users in keeping their digital skills up to date.
Community Days are held frequently so that members can share Hansken-related experiences and new insights in online or in-person meetings.

The larger and more active the Community gets, the more effectively and powerfully we can fight crime. Join us! Visit to learn more.
