Advanced Digital Forensics Institute


Digital forensics is a branch of forensic science encompassing the recovery and analysis of digital data found on any device capable of storing digital data such as a cell phone, a computer system, memory module, or gaming system, often in relation to a digital crime or security breach.

Digital forensics investigations have a variety of applications. The most common is to support or refute a hypothesis before criminal or civil courts. Forensics may also be useful in the private sector; such as during internal corporate investigations or intrusion investigation (a specialist probes into the nature and extent of an unauthorized network intrusion). The technical aspect of an investigation is divided into several sub-branches, relating to the type of digital devices involved; computer forensics, network forensics, database forensics and mobile device forensics. The typical forensic process encompasses the seizure, forensic imaging acquisition and analysis of digital media and the production of a report into collected evidence. As well as identifying direct evidence of a crime, digital forensics can be used to attribute evidence to specific suspects, confirm alibis or statements, determine intent, identify sources (for example, in copyright cases), or authenticate documents.
