What is computer forensics?
Computer or digital forensics is the application of science and engineering to the recovery of digital evidence using legally acceptable methods. Examiners use digital investigation and analysis techniques to determine what could be legal evidence on devices ranging from computers to cell phones to cameras. Examiners are capable of locating deleted, encrypted, or damaged files and data that may serve as evidence in a criminal or national security investigation.
