How data analytics is helping law enforcement


A new report highlights how law enforcement agencies — facing an explosion of digital forensics evidence — are using a data analytics platform from Splunk to fast-track digital investigations.

The report highlights examples of where Splunk’s analytics platform has already lent a significant hand in tackling a variety of criminal cases including:

  • Identifying scammers engaged in defrauding the Paycheck Protection Program.
  • Reviewing troves of data from disparate data sources in connection with the civil unrest in January 2021.
  • Apprehending a child pornography ring operating at Florida State University.
  • Identifying illegal human trafficking activity.
  • Tracing the digital fingerprints tied to ransomware activity.
