WHAT IS DATA FORENSICS?
Computer forensics is both an art and a science. The science uses sound and proven methods using hardware and software to acquire and examine data from a variety of products that store digital data. Any device that can store electronic data is capable of being forensically examined.
The art is the forensic examiner's knowledge of how to use a variety of forensic hardware, software, interpret and verify results, produce meaningful reports and provide expert testimony that is easily understood by attorneys, judges and juries.
Anyone can purchase software and hardware "forensic tools". The quality of your results is determined by the experience of the examiner, the proper use of forensic hardware and software, and, in-depth knowledge of the type of data being examined.
