Overview

The forensic examination of digital devices in support of law enforcement and civil investigations is a critical part of the evidence collection process. Almost every crime investigated by the police has an electronic evidence aspect.  Over the last two decades, the Internet has consolidated itself as a powerful platform that has changed the way we do business, and the way we communicate.

The capabilities and opportunities provided by the Internet have transformed many legitimate business activities, augmenting the speed, ease and range with which transactions can be conducted, whilst also lowering many of the costs. Criminals have also discovered that the Internet can provide new opportunities and multiplier benefits for illicit business. The dark side of the Internet involves not only fraud and theft, pervasive pornography and paedophile rings, but also drug trafficking and criminal organisations that are more intent upon exploitation than the disruption that is the focus of the hacking community.

Internet Activity on Digital Devices

The forensic examination and analysis of user activity on digital devices can be the pivotal point of any criminal or civil case. It is vital for digital forensics investigators to extract this data, analyse it quickly and present the evidence in an understandable format.  More importantly, as a forensic specialist, you need to be sure that the software you use is accurate, can pass your acceptance/validation testing and can correctly recover live and deleted data from a suspect system.
