Cooperation Between Academia And Law Enforcement: Challenges And Opportunities
Digital forensics research often depends on casework: specific problems with a device, operating system, app, or artifact that a forensic examiner needs to solve.
That isn’t always the case, though. Sometimes the problem has a broader scope, or the examiner doesn’t have the time or resources to dive deep. That’s especially true in smaller law enforcement agencies, where a forensic examiner may not even have a full-time position. In larger agencies, which often assist smaller ones, data volumes and caseloads can stymie research efforts.
In this article, amongst others, is explained how Hansken can service digital forensic knowledge sharing between law enforcement and academia.
