Discord is a chat community originally designed by and for gamers. In recent years, Discord has grown exponentially, and there are Discord channels for every interest under the sun. Like any other social media platform, people of certain ages and interests spend a lot of time here. They also share a lot of data, which is why it’s such a great place to perform digital forensics.
On today’s special episode, Paraben CEO and Founder Amber Schroader uses a new plugin on Paraben’s E3 computer forensics platform to dig into one of her children’s Discord profiles (with permission). What will we find as we dig through this enormous mass of data?
