With the growth in cyber crime there must be ways to eradicate such crime. With this instinct in mind, cyber security forensics comes into action. With covid-19 cybercrimes had increased in every country. This has also impacted globally. Hence every country and every business aspect should take an action related to computer forensics.
Computer forensics or simply digital forensics is a subset of forensic science that examines system data, user activity, and other pieces of digital evidence to determine if an attack is in progress and who may be behind the activity. Computer forensics analyze who were the attackers, how they broke in, and the exact steps they took to place systems at risk. Unlike traditional forensics, computer forensics deals with the digital evidence to go after the attacker. Digital evidence can be any evidence that is recognized digitally such as laptops, computers, e-mails, log history, SMS in mobile, sim cards etc. Attackers can be identified based on the data being breached in the digital system such as data modified, deleted or retrieved.
Digital forensics not only resides in computer forensics. It can range from computer forensics to mobile forensics, database forensics, network forensics and even the forensics of running devices. Various tools and techniques can be used to analyze the digital forensics based on the type of device being breached. Wireshark can be used to analyze the network breached, Cellebrite UFED for mobile forensics and so on.
The main purpose of digital forensics is to analyze the data being breached in the system. Who was behind the attack, internal person or external person. At what time the data was breached or what data was breached. It can be used by law enforcement agencies in criminal and civil cases or incident response teams in organizations.
