“Digital forensics is the process of uncovering and interpreting electronic data. The goal of the process is to preserve any evidence in its most original form while performing a structured investigation by collecting, identifying, and validating the digital information to reconstruct past events.
The context is most often for the usage of data in a court of law, though digital forensics can be used in other instances.” -Techopedia
Steps of Digital Forensics
In order for digital evidence to be accepted in a court of law, it must be handled in a very specific way so that there is no opportunity for cyber criminals to tamper with the evidence.
Identification First, find the evidence, noting where it is stored.
Preservation Next, isolate, secure, and preserve the data. This includes preventing people from possibly tampering with the evidence.
Analysis Next, reconstruct fragments of data and draw conclusions based on the evidence found.
Documentation Following that, create a record of all the data to recreate the crime scene.
Presentation Lastly, summarize and draw a conclusion.
Why is important for business? For businesses, Digital Forensics is an important part of the Incident Response process. Forensic Investigators identify and record details of a criminal incident as evidence to be used for law enforcement. Rules and regulations surrounding this process are often instrumental in proving innocence or guilt in a court of law.
