How Digital Forensic Tools Can Help You: The Importance of Forensics

Posted by Brittany Roberts on February 23, 2022

Digital forensics is the science of recovering files, artifacts, and evidence from digital devices including mobile phones, tablets, computers (including Windows, Mac, and Linux), external drives, drive images, and other media storage (USB flash drives, memory cards, etc.). 

Digital forensics investigators can work for law enforcement, corporations, or have their own private investigation firms. As a result of personal computing in the 1970s and 1980s, and the growth of the Internet in the 1990s and 2000s, today's investigations (corporate, civil, and criminal)  increasingly involve the need to access digital data to identify suspects, victims, witnesses, and to prove innocence or guilt.

It is common for investigators and lab examiners to standardize on digital forensic tools and equipment and they typically have a variety of software and hardware, just as a mechanic tends to have a variety of tools in their garage. Investigators need to be prepared to perform forensic investigations based on the nature of the crime or investigation. Software forensics is becoming increasingly important in this digital age and the use of digital forensics investigation applications has helped to solve cases faster.
