COMPUTER FORENSICS

Computer hacking forensic investigation is the process of detecting hacking attacks and properly extracting evidence to report the crime and conduct audits to prevent future attacks. Computer forensics is simply the application of computer investigation and analysis techniques in the interests of determining potential incidents while properly collecting legal evidence. Evidence might be sought in a wide range of computer crime or misuse, including but not limited to theft of trade secrets, theft of or destruction of intellectual property, and fraud. Computer forensic investigators draws on an array of methods for discovering data that resides in a computer system, or recovering deleted, encrypted, or damaged file information. This includes recovering deleted email, restoring erased images, and more. This investigation also uncovers the attack vectors and methods used by the bad actors/attackers for remediation efforts.

 

The need for businesses to become more efficient and integrated with one another, as well as the home user, has given way to a new type of criminal, the "cyber-criminal." It is no longer a matter of "will your organization be hacked?" but, rather, "when?" Today's battles between corporations, governments, and state-sponsored actors are no longer fought only in the typical arenas of boardrooms or battlefields using physical force. Now the battlefield starts in the cyber realm, which ties into most every facet of modern day life.
