Witnesses often are crucial elements in solving and prosecuting criminal or civil violations.  We now regularly use data that various technologies record. Digital witness devices provide a source of largely unbiased and dependable information to the investigator and prosecutor. However, many often ignore or do not even recognize commonly available electronics as potential witness devices.  One such device is the wireless router found in most homes and businesses.

As with any witness, some sort of vetting and consideration is wise. Reliability, bias, memory, physical abilities, etc., all can be factors that play roles in the use of digital witness devices and the use of their data.

What is WiFi Analytics?

As an analogy, Web Analytics companies changed the view of parsing Web Server logs from being an IT Function specifically focused on either security or on website uptime, into more of a marketing or business development function focused on user behavior and increasing engagement that also aids in security or uptime.
