The management of the privacy perspective in digital forensics : A qualitative interview study with the judiciary's actors (English)
Abstract [sv]

IT-forensik har funnits i många år och vuxit fram inom brottsutredningar då allt blir mer digitaliserat i vårt samhälle. Samtidigt som det blir mer digitalisering ökar mängden data inom IT. Mycket av vårt privata liv lagras i telefoner eller datorer, till exempel bilder eller personuppgifter. På senare år har integriteten blivit viktigare för varje individ och att följa de mänskliga rättigheterna är ett måste i dagsläget. IT-forensik är i grunden ett integritetsintrång hos den misstänkte och det betyder att aktörerna som utför detta måste vara mer försiktiga och ta hänsyn till de involverades integritet.

Syftet med arbetet har varit att undersöka hur aktörerna inom rättsväsendet hanterar integritetsperspektiv under IT-forensiska undersökningar, samt att få en bild av hur detta tillämpas i praktiken. De aktörer som blev intervjuade i denna kvalitativa studie var åklagare, domare och försvarare.

Resultatet visar att det finns många gråzoner och det sker mycket personliga bedömningar samt tolkningar hos aktörerna. Lagstiftningen skriver i teorin om hur vissa moment ska gå till, men när det tillämpas i praktiken blir detta betydligt mer komplicerat, vilket resulterar i att aktörerna får åtskilda åsikter och hur det ska tillämpas. Aktörerna finner vidare problematik kring vem som ska få tillgång till vad och hur de ska hantera integriteten.

Abstract [en]

Digital forensics has been around for many years and has emerged in criminal investigations since more is being digitized in our society. At the same time as there is more digitization, the amount of data within IT increases. Much of our private life is stored in phones or computers, such as pictures or personal data. In recent years, the privacy has become more important for each individual and to follow human rights is a must in the present. Digital forensics in its very core is a privacy infringement of the suspect which means that the actors who perform this must be more cautious and consider the privacy of the people involved.

The purpose of this work has been to investigate how the actors in the judicial system manage the perspective of privacy during IT forensic investigations and to get a picture of how this is applied in practice. The actors who were interviewed in this qualitative study were prosecutors, judges and defenders.

The results show that there are a lot of gray areas and that very personal assessments and interpretations are made by the actors. The law, in theory, explains how certain elements should be done, but when applied in practice, this becomes much more complicated. This results in the actors getting separate opinions of how they should be applied, furthermore who should have access to what and how to handle the privacy.
