Today, digital forensics experts must operate in a multidisciplinary environment that requires mastery of many disciplines, including law, computer science, finance, networking, data mining, and criminal justice. Meanwhile, cybercriminal activities often compel law-enforcement agencies to investigate across international borders, which means dealing with different jurisdictions and legal systems. Also, computing and networking infrastructures are increasingly intricate, further complicating investigations and activities related to digital forensics. For instance, clues pointing to illegal digital activities are often buried in large volumes of data, making criminal activity that much more difficult to detect and document with suitable evidence.
