How law enforcement establish a new digital forensic team ?

Post Posted: Tue Oct 31, 2017 3:34 am

I was wondering how law enforcement handle the challenge related to establishing an all new field of Digital Forensics ? for instance, suppose a law enforcement laboratory intend to develop a new capability, let's say "Video forensics", how do they handle the human factor ? I mean do they recruit specialized Video forensics expert, or do they choose police officers and teach them video forensic skills ?

Please I am looking for your opinions through out the world or research papers on the matter.

Regards,

Can't comment on how things work outside of Sweden, but a guy i talked to in the Swedish police was an officer before and he went to log analysis, another guy i know of had no previous training or experience from law enforcement when he started there.

The issue is not LEO specific, its a question how you dive into new domains. Its an internal task to first fix what jobs you want to solve in the future. After you find what skills are needed, then you can check the market for job-profiles able to handle this domain. But forensics skills you hardly find in the area of certification titles. Here the best guys in our team are all highly self-motivated and fast-learning.

You may not by occasion mentioned video forensics. Learn everything from video technologies and codex, compression and file formats. After you buy a forensics suite like Belkasoft for this domain. If you build-up a little network of external top video professionals and ask them to learn from you get closer to the bacon. DIY is a key to learn before running a forensics suite. What human does not master, he should not trust any machine to handle this.

Hang-in yourself into the issue - now, not tomorrow Smile
