Digital forensics recent case law in Italy and abroad
Digital forensics has seen a steady, and very interesting, regulatory evolution over the past two decades.
Alongside traditional topics of debate, such as the repeatability or unrepeatability of the acquisition of evidence sources, the need for bitstream images, the skills of practitioners, and the adaptation of the procedural framework to new technological requirements, new issues have presented to the jurist that are very interesting. Consider, by way of example, the production in court of WhatsApp chats, the seizure of entire servers with, even, data of third parties not involved in the investigations, the use of hacking tools by law enforcement agencies.
In this lecture we will go over, and comment on, the most important court cases, trying to trace best practices that are sound from both a technical and a legal point of view.
