In an industry that consistently deals with tsunamis of data, devices, encryption, and technological advancements, it’s crucial to drive innovation, develop solutions and come up with ideas that ensure digital investigators not only keep up, but stay ahead. How can computer forensics and mobile forensics work together for the benefit of the end user? Does freeing up time for highly qualified forensic experts streamline digital investigations and help solve more crimes? What’s some great advice for digital investigators, either new to the industry or seasoned experts?

In this episode, Adam Firman is joined by Andrew Lister, Managing Director of Detego Global.
