In the fight against online crime, time is of the essence. Many criminal investigators don't have a degree in Computer Science, creating a  need for tools that quickly and easily produce actionable insights. The NCIS Cyber Directorate leverages the descriptive power and scalability of Elasticsearch to create customized tools and turn evidence into insights that a Special Agent can integrate into their investigation. Learn how NCIS data analysis uses Elasticsearch to process evidence in the form of log files, its impact on efficient law enforcement, and some lessons learned along the way.
