Considering the omnipresent impact of the internet, cybersecurity has become imperative for almost every business in the world. We constantly see and read about cyberattacks, and their prevalence is always increasing. These attacks can happen to anyone and have a global impact on millions of people. The scary thing is, we can't always blame it upon notorious hackers who use their knowledge of cyberspace to breach someone's privacy or ruin citizens' rights. Sometimes, it's the simplest method that allows everyday people to access private information.

Unfortunately, some of these hackers are not caught by AI agencies or forensic investigators. Our laws have loopholes that hackers are well aware of, which they use in their favor. Sometimes experienced hackers can nullify forensic proof against them to come up clean and commit another cyber attack. Not anymore. Mustafa Lattouf, a genius digital forensics expert, has changed the game entirely with his new invention.

Mustafa Lattouf is a 21-year-old cyber expert with a lifelong passion for the industry. He graduated from the University of Bath and is currently working with one of the largest AI businesses in the world. Mustafa was always intrigued by the complex world of the web. For most of his life, he's been exploring cyberspace and was soon able to figure out the vulnerabilities that are present throughout the internet. Equipped with this knowledge, Mustafa became a hacking prodigy.

Discovering the vulnerabilities of cyberspace inspired him to dive deeper into the industry, and to make the internet more secure for everyday people. As he carried out his research, Mustafa Lattouf noticed that the biggest flaw lies in the legal procedures for punishing these hackers. For instance, if a notorious hacker is caught by forensic investigators after an examination of his device, he's often set free due to a lack of evidence. This is because digital forensics completed on a hacker's device is inadmissible in court. Especially in the case of international cyber attacks, these reports are often dismissed due to the lack of communication between law agencies and forensic investigators.

Mustafa Lattouf came up with a ground-breaking framework to solve this problem. His invention facilitates cooperation and communication between law agencies and forensic investigators in cases of cyber attacks. The framework helps investigators collect evidence from the device and prepare reports that adhere to court standards. This way, digital forensics will be accepted, and the hacker won't have as many options to escape legal repercussions.

After studying the loopholes in cybersecurity, Mustafa Lattouf has realized that strict legal action is the only way to curb cyber attacks. Humans are bound to make errors, and that's the reason almost every online system is vulnerable to hackers. Lattouf's framework has been an important development in strengthening the legal system against cybercrimes.

While hackers around the world are disrupting cyberspace, a few white hat hackers like Mustafa Lattouf are using their intelligence to safeguard millions against cybercrimes. Mustafa wants to introduce more such inventions soon as well to make the internet a safe space for everyone.
