There are few areas of crime or dispute where computer forensics cannot be applied. Law enforcement agencies have been among the earliest and heaviest users of computer forensics and consequently have often been at the forefront of developments in the field.

More recently commercial organizations have used Computer Forensics to their benefit in cases such as:

  • Intellectual Property theft
  • Inappropriate email and internet use in the workplace
  • Fraud Investigations
  • Employment disputes

The goal of a computer forensic investigation is to identify, collect, preserve, analyze and document sensitive digital data in a way that maintains the integrity of the evidence so that it is legally admissible.
