Data Visualisation: The Step Forward for Digital Forensics

As the bulk of investigative activity moved from paper to digital documents, keyword searching became the primary tool for identifying relevant evidence in a data set. However, keywords can be imprecise. A search may miss important items or return too many irrelevant results. As data volumes grow, investigators must trawl through ever increasing numbers of search results to find the information they seek.

Traditional digital investigation tools present these results in lists and tables. It quickly becomes too much for the human mind to take in. Data visualisation provides a much easier way for the brain to understand large quantities of data.

Watch our webinar on demand and learn:

  • How investigators can use visualisation to rapidly focus on the items of interest within very large data sets
  • How the Nuix context interface visualises communication networks, timelines, maps and links between items
  • How an investigator can use these visualisations to establish key players, their locations and their involvement in a matter of interest using the example of a large set of communication records
