What is Digital Forensics?

Digital forensics, concerns the identification, preservation and analysis of digital evidence using lawful and authorised processes. The investigative process follows three steps:

  1. Extract information from the digital device
  2. Exploit the data
  3. Examine the data

Digital forensics experts may be hired by private companies as part of their cybersecurity and information security aims, to identify potential data breaches, leaks and cyber attacks or threats. Law enforcement organisations use digital exploitation analysis to advance cases and also use capabilities within an incident response situation, to help recover or rapidly identify sensitive data that was lost or stolen as a result of an attack.

What is Digital Forensics Used for?

This practice is often used in both criminal, commercial, and private investigations. Evidence is collected to support or refute hypotheses in court, and digital forensics can help with intelligence gathering or locate, identify, and prevent potential other crimes. In civil cases, the practice of digital exploitation may help with electronic discovery (eDiscovery), such as unauthorised network intrusion, as an example.
