Digital Forensics Market to Hit 4.8 Billion USD in Revenues by 2020

According to Market Research Report, “Digital Forensics Market Analysis - By Forensic Tools; By Application (Network Forensics, Mobile Forensics, Database Forensics, Computer Forensics) - Forecast (2015 - 2020)”, published by IndustryARC, Increasing Opportunities from eDiscovery and Cloud Computing Channels to Drive the Digital Forensics Market to $4.8 Billion in Revenues by 2020


Browse - 39 Market Tables, 30 Figures spread through 165 Pages and an in-depth TOC on “Digital Forensics Market”



Digital forensics is a branch of forensic science and is defined as the process of obtaining, interpreting and uncovering electronic data from electronic storage devices. The purpose of this process is to preserve the probative value of any evidence so that it can be of use in a court of law. The exponential growth in volume of data with the proliferation of a wide variety of devices and formats has led to rise in use of digital forensics. According to research conducted by IndustryARC, the maximum use of Digital Forensics is done by the federal sector and will grow from $1,097.2 Million in 2015 to $2,060.5 Million by 2020. The concerns of corporate sector regarding IP theft, data protection and security are also being addressed with digital forensics. Many banking institutions are pro-actively using digital forensics tools to study the digital footprint and online behavior of their employees.


Challenges to cloud forensics can broadly be categorized into technical, legal, and organizational challenges. Such challenges occur when technical, legal, or organizational tasks become impeded or prevent the examination by the digital forensics examiner. There are many stakeholders involved in cloud forensics activities, including members of government, industry, and academia. Presence of different cloud architectures, need for data collection from virtual machines, role of anti-forensics, data ownership role management issues, jurisdiction and privacy concerns and lack of trained personnel are the main challenges faced by this budding segment currently.


Various forensics tools are used in various sectors, namely private, government, federal and corporate. The private companies prefer private investigators so as to maintain confidentiality and the government monitors and analyze cyber-crimes through digital forensics. Similarly, federal agencies use digital forensic science to prosecute criminals, investigate crimes, collect evidences, and train examiners for duties within a nation while corporate sector use digital forensics to monitor and solve the corporate frauds.


Electronic discovery or eDiscovery is the process in which electronic data is sought, searched, located, secured, and searched with the intent of using it as evidence in legal case. eDiscovery tools are being used to identify duplicate documents via hashing and some also detect near-duplicates. eDiscovery tools are currently also being used in law enforcement and in regulatory agencies of most of the developed countries. The present applications of these tools have shifted from providing a simple review of a client for a non-technical investigator to the entire lifecycle of complex cases with various teams working together on an investigation. The developments in technology have added different ways of working and also have raised the need of high investment. The range of people involved has increased to understand all the dimensions of the case. The implications are discussed with investigators along with the technical staff so as to achieve a working solution.

Frozen Stiff
Frozen Stiff (A Mattie Winston Mystery #3) - Annelise Ryan

Someone's trying to frame Hurley, from killing his ex-girlfriend to burning down David's house with Hurley's gas can to attempting to abduct Mattie. But who and why? Under suspicion, Hurley goes on the run and enlists Mattie's help in figuring out who's behind it all.


Good, but not great. I didn't devour this one like I did the other books in the series. I can't put my finger on why, some momentum was lost after the second book. But there was a lot to like in this one, from more background on Hurley (who is the series's least developed character, IMHO) to the old detective Bob (the gym scene made me laugh out loud!) to the great plot with a surprising twist at the end, there's no way I ever saw that coming. Although enjoyable, I found myself putting it aside in favor of other books more than once.

Forensics / Val McDermid
Forensics: An Anatomy of Crime - Val McDermid

The dead talk—to the right listener. They can tell us all about themselves: where they came from, how they lived, how they died, and, of course, who killed them. Forensic scientists can unlock the mysteries of the past and help serve justice using the messages left by a corpse, a crime scene, or the faintest of human traces. Forensics draws on interviews with some of these top-level professionals, ground-breaking research, and McDermid’s own original interviews and firsthand experience on scene with top forensic scientists.

Along the way, McDermid discovers how maggots collected from a corpse can help determine one’s time of death; how a DNA trace a millionth the size of a grain of salt can be used to convict a killer; and how a team of young Argentine scientists led by a maverick American anthropologist were able to uncover the victims of a genocide. It’s a journey that will take McDermid to war zones, fire scenes, and autopsy suites, and bring her into contact with both extraordinary bravery and wickedness, as she traces the history of forensics from its earliest beginnings to the cutting-edge science of the modern day.


I cancelled my cable TV years ago because I was making myself paranoid, watching way too many true crime stories. Plus, I had an unhealthy addiction to the show “Criminal Minds.” I’m pleased to report that I’m a much calmer person now that I’m not being inundated with this sort of entertainment. However, that former obsession with crime shows means that most of what McDermid writes in this non-fiction volume was not new to me, hence only a three star rating. If you are new to the world of forensic investigation, I think this would an excellent introduction.

McDermid has obviously had to research this field to make her mystery novels ring true. And what better way to make that research pay off again but to write a non-fiction book about the subject! It was good to get a British POV on these matters. Here in Canada, we tend to be bombarded with American material, both in books and television, so many of the case studies were new to me.

The author goes into just enough detail to make things comprehensible, without overloading the reader. The explanations are clear and easy to understand. I think it would make a good reference for jurors who are responsible for making decisions based on these methods.

Perish (A Gardiner and Renner Novel) - Lisa Black

Cleveland's police forensic scientist, Maggie Gardiner is called to the most gruesome murder scene imaginable.  The victim, a CEO of a mortgage lending firm has met a horrible death and it's Maggie's job to help police detective, Jack Renner catch the murderer.  Without any clues to go on, the deranged psychopath hones in on his next victims.


Perish is the first book I've read by author, Lisa Black.  It is the third book in the Gardiner and Renner series. I would benefit reading the first two books in the series to understand the secretive and strange relationship between Gardiner and Renner; even though flashbacks were given to figure it out.


Thirty percent into reading, I began to pull away from the story.  There was so much detailed writing about mortgage lending and unsavory practices which I didn't understand. However, Ms. Black soon redeemed herself and the "meat and potatoes" were served again.


The elaborate specifics of the murder scenes are attributed to Ms. Black's expertise as a forensic scientist and latent print examiner.  The descriptive, gruesome murder scenes and gathering evidence procedures could only be told by an expert....impressive! 


I truly enjoyed reading Perish by Lisa Black.  I will definitely read the first two books in the Gardiner and Renner series.


Thank you NetGalley and Kensington for the ARC for my honest review.
