Published on

As the world embraces digital services and automation of critical systems, understanding risk, attributing actions, and deciphering attack methods will be crucial to the proliferation of connected technology. Trust is key, but transparency is greatly obscured. Forensics will grow to become the verification of truth and will play an ever-increasing role in understanding responsibility and controlling the dissemination of Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt through actuarial data. Let’s explore the new areas, challenges, and opportunities for the bright future of digital forensics
