Computer forensics is the preservation, identification, acquisition, examination, and presentation of information found on computers relating to a criminal or civil investigation. This is not always the case, however, as computer forensics can also be used for intelligence purposes as well as other investigative reasons such as employment disputes and insurance claims. Computer forensics includes the examination of standalone data storage media such as external hard drives, USB thumb drives, CDs, and DVDs. The goal of computer forensics is to examine digital evidence in a manner that preserves the integrity of the evidence and to present facts and opinions about that evidence in a clear and understandable way.
There are numerous specialties within computer forensics including video forensics, vehicle infotainment system forensics, malware analysis forensics, and RAM or volatile memory forensics, as well as others. Specialization in forensics-related to various operating systems such as Linux, Mac, and Windows is also common, as forensic artifacts vary between operating systems.
