The Service
Digital Forensics is the science studying the identification, extraction, documentation, and any other form of treatment of computer data in order to be evaluated during a judicial process.

Digital Forensics is a highly interdisciplinary subject, for which a multitude of technical-scientific skills are required. They are tipically acquired in the degree course of Computer Science, and not only, to apply to a strategic context related to cyber intelligence activities.

In Southern Switzerland was officially introduced thanks to an agreement between the Department of Institutions of Ticino and SUPSI in May 2011. This agreement between institutions aims at a strategic cooperation at a local and national level in the field of Cyber Intelligence and Information Security.

As a consequence, SUPSI’s Digital Forensics Service was born. The Service has been conceived and designed to offer technical-scientific support to judicial authorities in the fileds above mentioned, and in particular in the context of digital investigations and of analyses conducted with the implementation of new technologies.

By involving interdisciplinary, highly qualified SUPSI researchers, actively engaged in applied research, we also provide local, national, and international companies with scientific consulting services that are highly valuable, distinctive, and confidential, given the nature of the information we handle. Within SUPSI’s research system, this Service is located along the research axes n. 5 (Intelligent systems for knowledge and communications) and 6 (Social systems and public health).

The person in charge of the Service is Dr.-Ing.- Alessandro Trivilini.
