Unleashing the Power of Artificial Intelligence in Digital Forensics: Role of Digital Forensics in Fighting Cybercrime
In an era defined by digital innovation and the ever-expanding reach of technology, the field of digital forensics plays a critical role in uncovering evidence, investigating cybercrime, and ensuring justice in the digital realm 1. Digital forensics involves the collection, analysis, and interpretation of digital evidence from various sources, such as computers, mobile devices, networks, and digital storage media. With the surge in data volumes and the complexity of digital crimes, traditional forensic methods have faced significant challenges. However, the emergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has brought forth a new era in digital forensics, revolutionizing the way investigations are conducted and enhancing the efficiency and accuracy of the process.

Browser Forensics (W57)
The course is aimed at allowing investigators to know the inner workings of the most used and well-known browsers from a digital forensics perspective. Nowadays, everything is done using the web. Most applications are web-based, which led to the importance of browser forensics for any digital forensic case. The interesting thing about browser forensics is the amount of information that you can extract and draw for a case.
Cloud Forensics (W56)
Cloud computing is the on-demand availability of computer system resources, especially data storage and computing power, without direct active management by the user. Large clouds often have functions distributed over multiple locations, each location being a data center. The nature of cloud computing – particularly cloud service provider management and distribution over multiple locations – makes forensic investigations difficult and seemingly impossible. Data centers alone can be a separate forensic discipline. This course merges cloud technology with sound forensic processes and principles to effectively conduct cloud forensic investigations using Amazon Web Services as a case study example.
