The Journal of Digital Forensics, Security and Law (JDFSL)

JDFSL is the official quarterly publication of the ADFSL, the Association of Digital Forensics, Security and Law.

The Journal of Digital Forensics, Security and Law (JDFSL) is a unique and innovative quarterly publication. It is a publication of the Association of Digital Forensics, Security and Law. The editorial offices of the journal are located at Longwood University.

JDFSL is founded on the premise that digital forensics goes beyond digital evidence. The JDFSL mission is to significantly expand the domain of digital forensics research to a wide and eclectic audience of academics, consultants and executives who are involved in the curriculum, research and use of digital forensics.

JDFSL publishes original research and comments about digital forensics and its relationship to security and law. Contributions are particularly welcome which analyze the results of interdisciplinary research and relate to the intersection of theory, method and empirical findings. Of interest will be manuscripts, which present the theoretical concepts of the development, organization, and dissemination of digital forensics concepts. Further, publications will include the results of research and case studies that advance the practice and understanding of digital forensics methods and techniques to support efficient and effective investigations.

JDFSL submissions are blind refereed and provide a forum for high quality research, communication and debate on the subject of digital forensics and directly related fields.

The Conference on Digital Forensics, Security and Law (CDFSL)

The ninth annual conference of the ADFSL Conference on Digital Forensics, Security and Law will be held in Richmond, Virginia, USA on May 28-29, 2014

Digital forensics is playing a more prominent role in law enforcement, network security, and information assurance. The field of study encompasses not just digital evidence, but also the areas of cyber law, sociology, and security to name a few. Its increasing importance is reflected in its growing role within crime investigations, civil cases and homeland security.

An in-depth understanding of digital forensics is needed by college students who will be entering the various fields within technology, business, criminal justice, law, and homeland security. Currently, many professionals in those fields are still not well-prepared to understand the use and management of digital evidence – or the use of digital forensics in determining the causes of security breaches, or the avoidance of security breaches altogether.

While some topics or courses will be needed in a variety of majors such as criminal justice and computer science, an enhanced level of study should be provided for those wishing to have a more solid foundation in digital forensics, security and law. By providing a conference addressing research and curriculum in the related disciplines of digital forensics, information assurance and law, we hope to provide an avenue which will provide for a more comprehensive and richer learning environment.
