4th International Annual Workshop on Digital Forensics & Incident Analysis (WDFIA 2009)
Title: Diversity Networks in Digital Investigations
Author(s): Peter Bednar, Vasilios Katos
Keywords: e-discovery and innovation
Abstract: This paper is builds upon the need that digital forensic investigators are required in many cases to investigate, understand and report on novel security breaches which have not been performed in the past. When an investigator is faced with the challenge to explore a new threat, we argue that the inquiry dynamics do not differ from an organisational employee challenged to perform innovation. This paper draws upon the approach of diversity networks which is used to support innovation, and it is shown how this paradigm could be adopted by the forensic investigator to shed light on the uncertainty aspects of a cyber crime scene.
