What is Digital Forensics?

Digital forensics is the process of utilizing scientifically proven methods to assemble and process potential evidence data found on a digital device (such as computer, laptop, hard drive, mobile phone, memory card, etc), and interpret that data in order for possible use in court or other theatres of investigation. The electronic evidence may assist in the prosecution of a criminal, help in the defense of an accused person, or be of intelligence to an individual who is seeking knowledge for either personal or professional reasons.

Branches of Digital Forensics

Computer Forensics

The goal of computer forensics is to explain the current state of a digital artifact, such as a computer system, storage medium or electronic document. The discipline usually covers computers, embedded systems (digital devices with rudimentary computing power and onboard memory) and static memory (such as USB pen drives). Computer forensics can deal with a broad range of information, from logs (such as internet history) through to the actual files on the drive.

Mobile Device Forensics

Mobile device forensics is related to recovery of digital evidence or data from a mobile device. A mobile device has an inbuilt communication system (eg. GSM) and usually proprietary storage mechanisms. Mobile forensic investigations usually focus on simple data such as call data and communications (SMS/Email) rather than in-depth recovery of deleted data.

Network Forensics

Network forensics is concerned with the monitoring and analysis of computer network traffic, both local and WAN/internet, for the purposes of information gathering, evidence collection, or intrusion detection. As network data is often volatile and rarely logged, network forensics is often reactionary.

Forensic Data Analysis

Forensic data analysis examines structured data with the aim to discover and analyze patterns of fraudulent activities resulting from financial crime.

Database Forensics

Database forensics is related to the forensic study of databases and their metadata. The investigations use database contents, log files and in-RAM data to build a timeline or recover relevant information.

  • Employees fraud, disloyal employees

Flexible Services

If a customer finds a digital crime suspect or a potential criminal behavior that is based on digital device, but is not sure whether it is true, outsourcing a law firm straightaway or entering a formal lawsuit that involves digital forensic process quickly may arouse the suspicious, incur internal chaos, cause intelligence leakage, generate unnecessary costs or lead to other unexpected problems.

Many company managements have expressed their wish to have a before-hand investigation and discovery before going into any formal procedure or handing it to any legal party, after they detect a potential crime.

However, it is not easy, if not impossible, for them to carry that out internally as not every organization has relevant talents for these high-tech activities.
