What is Computer Forensics?

Posted on | Posted in Blog

Computer forensics is a specialised aspect of electronic discovery that refers to the process used to retrieve and extract data that may have been deleted, accidently or purposely from computer hard drives even if the equipment has been damaged.  Recovered data is commonly used as evidence in any criminal legal investigation.

Computer related crimes have been on the increase in recent years used in either gangs, fraud related crimes or simply emails between guilty parties when organising criminal activities. Modern technology available in the forensic industry means that information such as dates, times and locations can be established creating accurate times lines of events and trends in communications which can be used as evidence the guilty can be convicted as well as innocence being proved using computer forensic investigations.
