Digital technologies are changing the face of business. As organizations rapidly embracing digital technologies such as cloud, mobile, big data and IOT, the context of digital forensics is more relevant than before. The growing number of cybercrimes has changed the role of forensics from DNA to Digital.
According to the market research report published by IndustryARC, by 2020, the digital forensics market will reach 4.8 billion USD.
