Computer forensics is a fast-changing industry. New mobile devices, increased use of the cloud to store data, and social media all present new challenges to collecting data. It’s not enough to limit a data collection to files and emails anymore. Smartphones, tablets, email, instant messaging platforms, traditional file shares, and more all need to be included in a collection. And computer forensics experts must keep up-to-date on industry-accepted practices for collecting each type of data.

  • How does each technology work?
  • How do users interact with said technology?
  • Where is the data stored?
  • And how is the data stored?

Those are all questions a computer forensics expert needs to be prepared to answer when investigating a cybersecurity event or preparing for litigation.

Check out ‘Data Collection: Embracing New Technology and Abandoning Old Paradigms‘ in this issue of Peer to Peer Magazine to understand more about changing trends in computer forensics and collections.
