What is Digital Forensics
It is important to understand what digital forensics is. A good working definition comes from Interpol which states that digital forensics “is a branch of forensic science that focuses on identifying, acquiring, processing, analyzing, and reporting on data stored electronically”. Essentially this means that digital forensics deals with computers, smartphones, servers/remote storage, and other digital systems that we interact with in a variety of ways. The main goal is to extract data and then process it into actionable intelligence, whether that be for important business decisions or whether to proceed with a court case or other actions. Having the right information in any of these cases is critical.
