The role of a forensic investigator has changed since its inception. The scope of data search is no longer limited to local devices and can be stored in a myriad of locations. It takes a skilled and trained professional to identify key evidence. The roadmap now includes cloud platforms. A forensics investigator can’t afford to ignore cloud storage accounts, mobile apps, cryptocurrency, or any other platform that stores data, offline or online. Investigators must embrace the cloud and hone their techniques to become successful.

Key takeaways:

  • The journey from local to cloud storage
  • Forensically preserving and examining relevant data
  • The correlation of different data sets and their value to an investigation
  • Key characteristics of a successful investigator and investigation
