The IT world is continually evolving. In the last few years, we have witnessed a shift from PCs to mobile devices, in both number and usage. Content is also more distributed than ever, and forensics investigations will not only involve a single isolated piece of hardware, but rather a set of logical and physical entities, using a wide range of unceasingly changing technologies and devices.
Business activities such as financial transactions, file sharing, and data accumulation are moving online under cloud storage. With all its benefits such as providing centralized systems that made data accessible anytime and anywhere, the digital world also has its self-created problem— cybercrime. Every year, the cybercrime rate is increasing exponentially, and the scenario demands better crime detection and protection, to meet the increase in the number of Digital Forensic agencies.
