Digital forensics Challenges and opportunities

Digital forensics arose from the need to analyze incidents and investigate crimes, in which technological resources may have been used directly or indirectly. The rapid development of information and communication technologies has directly led to a shift in the focus from the real world to the digital world. Criminals were quick to react to this and explore new illegal economic activities. However, this speed has not always been matched by law enforcement, or even by companies, which still have major challenges in investigating, investigating and responding to security incidents and digital crimes. This is aggravated by the fact that new technologies are constantly appearing, such as cloud computing and storage of huge volumes of data, in addition to the widespread use of mobile devices with high computing power and storage. Even more so because the forces of law are a step behind, seeking solutions to crimes that did not exist before. In addition, the techniques initially employed by forensicators, as post-mortem analysis of disconnected computer hard drives was essentially performed, are no longer suitable in several cases, where it is necessary to capture volatile data from the connected system. This context presents a huge opportunity for computer forensics, which has a great potential to innovate, help companies and protect society, provided that all the actors involved (government, companies, academia and civil society) become aware of its importance and take effective actions to combat digital crime.
