Computer forensics (sometimes computer forensic science) is a branch of digital forensic science pertaining to legal evidence found in computers and digital storage media. The goal of computer forensics is to examine digital media in a forensically sound manner with the aim of preserving, recovering, analyzing and presenting facts and opinions about the information.Although it is most often associated with the investigation of a wide variety of computer crime, computer forensics may also be used in civil proceedings. The discipline involves similar techniques and principles to data recovery, but with additional guidelines and practices designed to create a legal audit trail.
Evidence from computer forensics investigations is usually subjected to the same guidelines and practices of other digital evidence. It has been used in a number of high profile cases and is becoming widely accepted as reliable within US and European court systems.A leading computer forensics certification is the GIAC Certified Forensic Analyst (GCFA) certification from the Global Information Assurance Certification organization. There are currently over 2100 GCFA certified individuals.
