Computer Forensics Investigation – A Case Study - InfoSec Institute

Computer technology is the major integral part of everyday human
life, and it is growing rapidly, as are computer crimes such as
financial fraud, unauthorized intrusion, identity theft and intellectual
theft. To counteract those computer-related crimes, Computer Forensics
plays a very important role. “Computer Forensics involves obtaining and
analysing digital information for use as evidence in civil, criminal or
administrative cases (Nelson, B., et al., 2008)”.

A Computer Forensic Investigation generally investigates the data
which could be taken from computer hard disks or any other storage
devices with adherence to standard policies and procedures to determine
if those devices have been compromised by unauthorised access or not.
Computer Forensics Investigators work as a team to investigate the
incident and conduct the forensic analysis by using various
methodologies (e.g. Static and Dynamic) and tools (e.g. ProDiscover or
Encase) to ensure the computer network system is secure in an
organization. A successful Computer Forensic Investigator must be
familiar with various laws and regulations related to computer crimes in
their country (e.g. Computer Misuse Act 1990, the UK) and various
computer operating systems (e.g. Windows, Linux) and network operating
systems (e.g. Win NT). According to Nelson, B., et al., (2008), Public
Investigations and Private or Corporate Investigations are the two
distinctive categories that fall under Computer Forensics
Investigations. Public investigations will be conducted by government
agencies, and private investigations will be conducted by private
computer forensic team. This report will be focused on private
investigations, since an incident occurred at a new start-up SME based
in Luton.

This report also includes a computer investigation model, data
collections and its types, evidence acquisitions, forensics tools,
malicious investigation, legal aspects of computer forensics, and
finally this report also provides necessary recommendations,
countermeasures and policies to ensure this SME will be placed in a
secure network environment.
