The digital forensics investigation challenge

Almost every company will eventually need to conduct a digital investigation. Litigation, data breaches, fraud, insider threats, HR issues, and other cybersecurity incidents are largely unavoidable. The same goes for law enforcement authorities, as criminal activity increasingly moves online. Whether a corporate or law enforcement investigator, you need to gather all data pertinent to your investigation, analyze it at the deepest forensic level, and produce trusted reports.
