Cyber incidents are fast moving and increasing in number and severity. When a cyber incident occurs, the attacked enterprise responds with a set of predetermined actions. Applying digital forensics to aid in the recovery and investigation of material on digital media and networks is one of these actions. Digital forensics is the “process of identifying, preserving, analyzing and presenting digital evidence in a manner that is legally acceptable in any legal proceedings (i.e., a court of law).” The purpose of this white paper is to provide an overview of digital forensics as it applies to cybersecurity.
