What is a digital forensics solution?

This category will look at data extractions from electronic evidence, translations to operationally useful information, and the presentation of the data. This includes identifying, recording, analyzing, and finally documenting digital evidence. The judges will seek to identify the best digital forensics solutions: this will encompass solutions which assist with the identification and presentation of evidence to identify criminal activity, but applications are not limited to this area.

Digital forensics solutions typically include software tools that can scan and analyze digital devices to collect evidence, such as deleted files, system logs, and network traffic. They also include specialized hardware tools, such as write blockers and forensic imaging devices, which can create bit-by-bit copies of digital devices without altering the original data.

Digital forensics solutions can be used in a variety of contexts, including criminal investigations, corporate investigations, and civil litigation. They are often used to investigate crimes such as cyberattacks, intellectual property theft, and fraud.
