The methodology of “Computer Forensics” is used in many different areas today. Although the literal meaning of “forensics” is defined as “scientific methods of solving crimes, that involve examining objects or substances related to a crime”, digital/computer forensics as a science is inherently different from most traditional forensic disciplines. Computer examinations need to be done almost everywhere, not just in a controlled laboratory setting. Instead of producing interpretive conclusions as in many forensic science disciplines, computer forensics produces information and data directly. Computer forensics, which emerged as a new forensic science discipline in the 80s, is in a constant change due to the development of technology.
The use of computer forensics methods with existing cyber security solutions supports the “defense in depth” approach of organizations for network and computer security. Understanding and using the legal and technical aspects of computer forensics helps to obtain very important information about systems in cyber security.
To comply with the laws and regulations related to the protection of personal data (and all kinds of data), the use of digital forensics tools for both analysis and protection is very useful. In the event of an incident affecting critical and sensitive data, organizations using digital forensics tools can easily demonstrate that they follow a sound security policy and avoid possible lawsuits or negative consequences of regulatory audits.
Identifying, collecting, protecting and analyzing persistent and volatile data (even if deleted, damaged or encrypted) enables the discovery of security incidents, internal or external threats, crimes, as well as facilitating intrusion detection and vulnerability assessment processes of organizations.
