Forensic Computing: Introduced and Defined

The computer criminal has had a field day for the last two decades, committing crimes on unsuspecting victims, confident in the knowledge they wouldn’t be caught. The saviour is here adeptly titled forensic computing, the patrolling Bobbies of the cyber world, eager to pick up the trail of criminal cyber activity and provide digital evidence for a court of law. So how does this new field run?

What are the common activities of day-to-day investigations of computer crime? This research is focused on providing an overview of what forensic computing entails and some of the current issues surrounding it. One such issue is the lack of resources faced by law authorities in funding a full-scale forensics department.

This focus will be explored as well as highlighting areas such as judges seemingly keen to dismiss computer crime as a low priority, through various misconceptions and the lack of technical knowledge available in the courtroom. Hopefully by reading this paper, the new field of forensics will be explained to the reader and its importance to society worldwide.
