Abstract With so much information collected from so many places and stored in so many others, the forensic value of digital evidence has exploded globally. This ranges from evidence relating to traditional crimes to that for new cybercrimes. The ability to use digital forensics, computational policing analytics and electronic evidence of all types, and the protections from misuse, are governed by the laws of national jurisdictions. Where those laws intersect in transnational cases may be harmonized or conflict‐ridden. As digital forensics is an interdisciplinary activity, both juridical and technical coordination between nations are essential for effective transnational law enforcement. This requires the application of forensic technology conforms to the legal rules of the jurisdictions involved. We examine legal aspects of this evolving data paradigm and issues relating to legal‐technical compliance. We speculate as to how regulation may evolve for the future.
