Cranfield collection #1: Digital forensics blogs

CCL enjoys a close relationship with Cranfield University, collaborating on the design and delivery of Cranfield’s Digital Forensics MSc. In the first of our regular ‘wrap-ups’, we're highlighting some excellent blogs from course director and expert practitioner, Dr Graeme Horsman.

Here are the first three blogs from Graeme - they're all quick reads and serve as a really useful primer on all things DF.

What is digital forensic science?

Graeme argues that public recognition and understanding of digital forensics is lagging behind awareness of the more traditional and longer established forensic disciplines. So in his first blog, Graeme goes right back to basics.

Why do we need digital forensic science?

Graeme moves on to explain how the technological revolution has impacted the criminal justice system and just how much crime today contains a digital element

What traits does a digital forensic investigator need?

As a digital forensics lab that has an amazingly diverse staff in terms of background, routes into DF and interests, we’re interested in Graeme’s take on some of the core qualities he thinks successful practitioners need. There may definitely be traits analysts have in common but we can also attest to the fact that DF practitioners are a wonderfully varied bunch!
