Igor Kotsiuba took part in the 4th Working Group Meeting (WG4) and the 2nd Core Group meeting  (CGM2)

Igor Kotsiuba, on behalf of PIMEE as a Ukrainian representative in Management Committee of DigForAsp (Digital forensics: evidence analysis via intelligent systems and practices) funded by the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) took part in The 4th Working Group Meeting (WG4) and the 2nd Core Group meeting (CGM2) were held on February 20, 21 and 22 in Rome (Italy).

Igor Kotsiuba, partner at iSolutions LLC commented “The omnipresence of smart devices in many aspects of modern everyday life has helped to achieve an enormous level of automation, has ensured sustainable development, and improved quality of life. Over the last decade, such small and portable devices became cheap and easy to deploy in any kind of application. With the full range of versatile connectivity, such technological development also brings multiple challenges related to the security of infrastructure and data. Many individuals, companies, and states worldwide experience the previously unseen scale and scope of the attacks using novel approaches. All these smart applications have also increased the overall attack surface leading to multiple attack vectors available through vulnerabilities. Lack of standards, insufficient security awareness, and new technological landscape does not help either. Considering this, one needs to enhance forensics investigation methodologies, employ novel tools, combine threat intelligence, and integrate forensic readiness. Such measures will help to reduce the total cyber risk through a high level of preparedness for anticipated data-driven crimes in smart applications. We believe that this paper will help in bringing novel focus to existing digital forensics methodologies with a focus on smart applications.

Digital Forensics Science fights for its place as a priority in smart infrastructure development, We need to consider it as inevitable part of Smart Infrastructure, and moreover – Digital Forensics capacity is highly demanded by Law Enforcement Agencies. AI is penetrating to LEA’s operations, we need to work with new technological and ethical challenges.”
