Join Javis Olson for the 9th Global Webinar on Forensic Science as he highlights the critical role that digital forensics technology plays in military operations.

About the presentation:

Digital forensics is increasingly vital in military operations as data volumes proliferate. This presentation examines digital forensics applications across defence missions, from intelligence gathering to counterterrorism. 

Channelling his extensive military experience, Javis will reveal how forensic data extraction and analysis enables access to mission-critical intelligence from devices and applications. The presentation will highlight how investigators leverage automated tools and AI-powered analytics to process terabyte-scale data to identify critical evidence and hidden links. 

Javis will also emphasise how investing in next-gen digital forensics enhances readiness, decision-making, and operational outcomes.
