Digital Forensics

Personal, physical, environmental, system-related, network and operational security policies should be defined for a healthy information systems security. These policies should be audited regularly and they should be in practice and for every time, everywhere, every event and especially for everyone. As world leading cyber security professional Bruce Schiner says, “Security is a dynamic process rather than an end product.”

As with the other crimes in our society, cyber-crime is also an indispensable part of our daily life. It is a reality that may happen to any of us. Even the world biggest companies that are explicitly aware of the cyber threats become the victims of the cyber-crimes. Their systems are infiltrated, their information is stolen, and even their systems are shut down for some time. The inevitable truth about cyber threat is clearly shown with the below table that gives us the stolen user related information of the biggest companies.

It is definitely a motto that connected computers, to the Internet or to any other network, cannot be % 100 safe. For that reason, we are hearing abuses or cyber-crimes every day.

If cyber-crimes are indispensable part of our society and the probability of the cyber-crime incident is almost certain, what should be done when face one? Digital forensics comes into play at this point with its stages; recognition of crime, evidence recovery, acquisition, examination, analysis, reporting, and submission to legal authorities. In other words, digital forensic is a branch of forensic science encompassing the recovery, preservation, acquisition, examination, analysis, and reporting of material found in digital devices.

The most important stage of the digital forensics is evidence collection / recovery phase where all the related or probable digital evidences should be gathered in forensically sound way. Digital evidence collection/recovery is the process of seizing and securing suspect property without altering the contents of data that reside in the devices. If the evidences are searched, recognized, documented, and collected in the proper way at the crime scene, other steps of the digital forensics will be meaningless, and none of them can be accepted by the court of law.
