The Role of Psychology in Digital Forensics

As more people depend on technology for both personal and professional endeavors, digital forensics has never been more important. Digital forensics is a branch of forensic science specifically focused on cybercrime, using computer evidence to support investigations. And it is a field that is growing at a rapid speed: Its global market value is projected to reach $8.7 billion by 2027, from $4.7 billion in 2020.

As digital forensics continues to grow, so do the mounting challenges its professionals need to face. After all, there are still vulnerabilities in cybersecurity systems, especially when you consider human factors and intervention; those could lead to data leaks and errors. Understanding how both your employees and attackers think is the key to creating better defenses in digital forensics.
