Digital or Computer Forensics

"In the workplace, incidents have always happened, but now the evidence can be captured and examined on the computer."

The 4 Most Important Steps of Computer Forensics Investigation:
Whatever the case and wherever the problem, the same basic rules of computer forensic investigation must be followed:

1. Adhere to ACPO, (Association of Chief Police Officers), guidelines for digital evidence recovery, with a comprehensive auditable process

2.Preserve the evidence.
Data stored on a computer can be destroyed or made inadmissible as evidence very easily. The single most important task is using the correct procedures to get at the data. Vital evidence may lie in deleted files or fragments of past files and, even turning the computer on can result in their permanent loss.

3. Never work on the original media.
Once the computer or device has been identified as containing potential evidence, it must be forensically imaged in order to be examined. Specialist tools and software are used to create legally recognised exact copies of the media for analysis purposes. These copies are not the same as a normal backup. They contain an exact, forensically sound copy of every BIT on the disk or device.

4. Examinations must be repeatable.
Computer Forensics analysis is an exact science. We deal in proof, not speculation.

Human Rights, international law, and protocols from the ACPO, NHTCU, ensure that our evidence gathering is of internationally approved methodologies, and presented in a ‘court ready' statement or alternatively, our “Expert Witness” services may be used.

Whether disciplining staff for misconduct or responding to a threat from outside, your organisation increasingly has to handle issues that involve evidence from computers, mobile phones, networks, and other electronic devices. Your existing policies and procedures may be sufficient to deal with the more traditional issues of gross misconduct but do they adequately cover the new risks and opportunities presented by the ever-changing face of technology? The incident response procedures you have in place to handle threats to Information Systems may be adequate but are they forensically sound? Can they secure the evidence you'll need quickly and without introducing risk? Are they fully in line with appropriate computer forensics procedures?

You may simply think of computer crimes as someone trying to "hack" into a computer system or as crimes committed on the internet. However, once it is realized that computer storage media are really large filing cabinets with detailed, retrievable records of the activities of the user, it can be seen that computer evidence can be very important in any type investigation or inquiry.
