Conference

IEEE BigData 2017

International Workshop on Big Data Analytic for Cyber Crime Investigation and Prevention

Introduction to Workshop

The increased utilization of personal digital devices (such as computers, smart phones, tablets, sensors and storage media) creates an ever expanding volume of potential digital evidence. But the number of digital forensics investigators available has not kept pace with this digital evidence expansion and this imbalance has created a significant obstacle for timely investigation/prosecution in law enforcement. The relative scarcity of digital investigators has created a bottleneck in the digital investigation process. This problem requires innovative and advanced digital evidence analysis methods in law enforcement. These new methods will serve to alleviate the bottleneck, by providing new tools for the automated discovery, correlation, examination, analysis and understanding of digital evidence. Similarly, advanced big data analytics have become a critical need in cybercrime investigations as they also require novel approaches to automated data analysis.
