The Role of Digital Forensics in Spectrum Warfare
Rapid developments in information and communications technology have resulted in increased innovations in terms of warfare. From World War II signal technology like jamming became a mainstay in warfare; electronic warfare became virtually an integral part of the war. By the 2000s there was an increasing use of cyberspace in warfare (i.e. cyber warfare) and the emergence of attacks like Stuxnet which did not target information systems, but physical infrastructure; and tensions between Russia and its neighbors resulting in Ukraine’s power grid being brought down by Russian cyber attacks. As of 2019, the US Army merged its electronic warfare and cyber warfare operations as a result of developments in the battle spectra.
Digital forensics has a key role to play in modern-day warfare. Digital forensics tools can be used for monitoring and intelligence, as well as investigating how an attack was carried out. Digital forensics can greatly improve a nation’s dominance of the electromagnetic spectrum giving it the upper hand whether in terms of defense or offense.

“If you have not looked at attending the Paraben Forensic Innovation Conference you should. The DFIR event has great talks and lots of hands-on lab tracks. Even though the conference is called Paraben, there are a lot of other forensic companies there. And, you can talk to lots of real users. Unlike other conferences that cost thousands, this digital forensics conference is affordable for any budget. Bonus: It's in Park City UT. I plan to be there every year!"
