The DFIR Efficiency Playbook: Streamlining Investigations with More Productive Labs

With the ever-increasing number of devices, data, and encryption that accompany most investigations nowadays, it’s more pressing than ever to give digital media investigators the tools, resources, training – and importantly, the time – to solve cases.

However, digital forensic units (DFUs) often struggle to keep up with the tremendous amount of data that needs to be extracted and analyzed, leading to backlogs and delays in investigations. In order to address this issue, law enforcement agencies must empower experts working in DFUs to focus on the more complex devices and investigation. As a result, agencies will not only maximize their DFU’s efficiency and improve their ability to solve cases but also enhance public safety and trust.

In this e-book, we put the spotlight on some of the ways MSAB can help increase the efficiency of digital forensic experts and empower them to do what they do best: make the world a safer place, one complex investigation at a time.

  • Chapter 1: The “Three T’s” Strategy to Free Up Time for Experts in DFUs
  • Chapter 2: From Frontline to DFUs: Empower Investigators to Work Smarter, Faster, Better
  • Chapter 3: Ways Forward for Digital Forensic Investigators

In Chapter 1, we’ll dive deeper into the importance of improving the conditions for extracting data outside of the lab, right at the crime scene. It’s becoming increasingly essential to empower frontline professionals with the necessary tools and training to handle large volumes of data efficiently. We’ll explore how to accomplish this and the benefits it can bring to your digital forensics investigations.

Chapter 2 will delve into some of the best ways to empower digital forensic investigators to work smarter, faster, and better. We’ll explore four of XRY’s most innovative capabilities that can enhance your workflow and improve your digital forensic unit’s efficiency. This is the chapter to look forward to if you want to enhance your knowledge of XRY Pro, Photon, rapid hash matching, and extracting MediaTek devices.

In Chapter 3, we’ll take a glimpse into the future of digital forensics. As technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace, new opportunities and challenges are emerging in the field. With the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud processing of data, and the new possibilities of 5G, digital forensic experts are faced with exciting new frontiers to explore, and ultimately, new hurdles to overcome. This final chapter is all about keeping an eye on the non-stop evolution of digital forensics.
