MSAB Joins CASE Initiative On Digital Forensic Standards

CASE is working to promote the exchange of cyber investigation information between technologies and organizations

MSAB today announced that the company has joined other industry leaders to work collaboratively on the Cyber-Investigation Analysis Standard Expression (CASE) initiative. CASE is a community-developed specification language or standard designed to serve a broad range of cyber-investigation domains, including digital forensic science, incident response, counter-terrorism, criminal justice, forensic intelligence and situational awareness.

The CASE Initiative began in 2015 at the U.S. Department of Defense Cyber Crime Center (DC3). The standard was released as open source in 2017 and its adoption grew following a meeting at Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre. The primary motivation for CASE is interoperability – to advance the exchange of cyber-investigation information between tools and organizations.Digital forensic specialists routinely use software tools to extract, parse and analyze information on a hard drive or a mobile phone. Today, it is often difficult to aggregate the digital information in a standardized way. For every tool available, investigators have to match the extracted data with the tool specifications, making the process time-consuming and costly. CASE supports automated normalization, combination, correlation and validation of information, enabling investigators to spend less time parsing and aggregating data and more time analyzing.

“We welcome the chance to work with other organizations and technology providers to modernize the digital forensics processes that exist today,” said Joel Bollö, MSAB CEO. “Criminal enterprises and other threat actors are becoming more sophisticated in using mobile devices, the Internet of Things, encryption and new apps. Collectively we will all be strengthened by helping the digital intelligence community work together more effectively and share information more easily.”

In addition to MSAB, other participants in the CASE Initiative include the U.S. National Institute of Standards Technology (NIST), the U.S. Department of Defense Cyber Crime Center (DC3), Europol’s European Cybercrime Center (EC3), governments and law enforcement agencies, industry peers, and academic institutions.

Throughout the past few years, the way employees communicate with each other has changed forever.

69% of employees note that the number of business applications they use at work has increased during the pandemic.

Desk phones, LAN lines and even VOIP have become technologies of the past workplace environment as employees turn to cloud applications on their computers and phones to collaborate with each other in today’s workplace environment.

Whether it’s conversations in Teams, file uploads in Slack chats, or confidential documents stored in Office 365, the amount of data stored and where it is stored, is growing quicker than IT and systems administrators can keep up with.

Corporate investigators and eDiscovery professionals need to seamlessly collect relevant data from cloud sources and accelerate the time to investigative and discovery review.

With the latest in Cellebrite’s remote collection suite of capabilities, investigators and legal professionals can benefit from secure collection with targeted capabilities for the most used workplace applications.

Join Monica Harris, Product Business Manager, as she showcases how investigators can:

- Manage multiple cloud collections through a web interface
- Cull data prior to collection to save time and money by gaining these valuable insights of the data available
- Collect data from the fastest growing cloud collaboration applications like Office365, Google Workspace, Slack and Box
- Login to a single source for workplace app collection without logging into every app and pulling data from multiple sources for every employee
- Utilize a single unified collection workflow for computer, mobile and workplace cloud applications without the need to purchase multiple tools for different types of collections – a solution unique to Cellebrite’s enterprise solution capabilities
