Cyber Forensics: Development of a Case Hypothesis

chain of custody, there is another process known as the chain of Inference which is also referred as concatenate inferences. These inferences between the weak and the strong ones build upon one another until they reduce the gap between the defendant and the conclusion to a manageable distance. The concatenate inferences process may be interpreted by fabricating a hypothetical scenario. The purpose of constructing a chain of inferences is to convince a fact finder that the desired conclusion is the...
