Two Policy & Practice Briefing Papers from the Digital Forensics and Social Media (DFSM) Project Published
The first of the two papers considers the legal and policy framework in which digital evidence is used and provides a resource that practitioners can refer to who when they have to handle digital evidence. This resource covers all processes from initially obtaining and reviewing of potential digital evidence, through to disclosure and presentation in court.
The second of the two papers looks at the technique of sentiment analysis and how this could potentially assist investigators with processing and analysing large amounts of digital information from mobile devices and social media platforms during criminal investigations. In particular, it can highlight “events of interest” in exchanges between individuals, thereby allowing resources to concentrate on these for more detailed attention.
Further papers will be released from this project later in the year.
