How to create automatic forensic evidence

Why Data Forensics
is important

From unstructured to structured: The search for relevant data in data forensics.

The forensic examination of IT systems can be crucial to providing evidence in court proceedings and criminal prosecution. An important component is evidence management, where digital evidence is collected, analysed and prepared for court proceedings.

Unstructured data and dark data often complicate investigations against cybercriminals. However, IT forensic analyses must be conducted fast and effective in order to avoid a worst case scenario in the event of a data breach for example.

The 5 biggest challenges in IT forensics:

  • Unstructured data: Many different sources and inaccessible storage locations make the search complicated.
  • Data processing speed: Processing time depends on data volume and hardware performance.
  • Data security: Protect data integrity and quickly identify potential threats or relevant information
  • Data analysis: In-depth investigation and accurate evidence gathering for successful court proceedings.
  • Data compliance: Compliance with legal requirements to ensure lawful data collection and analysis.

Importance and scope of data forensics

  • Increased number of cyber-attacks: Over 70% of German companies were victims of successful attacks
  • Damage limitation: Global cyber crime caused over 225 billion euros in damage to companies worldwide since 2007 – some of them even went bankrupt
  • Areas of application: law enforcement, anti-fraud, audits, corporate security, data protection and compliance & governance
