i. Manage The term manage is used to mean acquiring the necessary contractual vehicle and resources that include financial resources that are used in running forensic labs and programs. It can also be used to mean to coordinate and build internal and external consensus that can be used to develop and manage an organizational digital forensic program. Management also is to establish a digital forensic team, usually, the one that is composed of investigators, IT professionals and incidents handlers to perform digital and network forensics. Management provides adequate workspaces that at minimum take in to account
The former being defined as the evidence collected in order to convict or rule out suspects, and the latter being defined as the way the investigators developed the investigation and how it evolved throughout the ensuing years. In order to evaluate these two different subjects, one needs to examine the similarities and differences between this investigation and theories about how investigation of this type develop, the nuances of this investigation not able to be explained by theory, investigatory elements that
As a digital forensic investigator, I was assigned to a case where my expertise where needed. My role in the investigation was to search the suspects digital evidence to help find more helpful information and advance the case. Overall my job as a digital forensic investigator was to recover and analyse the digital evidence so that it could be used in the criminal prosecution.
Intense training and testing has to happen within all branches of law enforcement. A great teaching method would be to actually put forensics on trial, dissect its entire process relative to eyewitness accounts, stress, and memory. Moreover, as difficult as it is to put any victim through, great benefit can be had from a professional not connected to the investigation, have the victim recount why she/ he is sure they picked the right person. Chances are they will have to all over again if they pick more
Computer forensics processes must adhere to standards set by the courtroom that often complicates what could have been a simple data analysis. In court, knowing who connected to the system based on logs is not enough. There must be facts that will support those connection
Criminal investigation is the process of discovering, collecting, preparing, identifying, and presenting evidence to determine what happened and who is responsible The preliminary investigation includes all the activities that an officer performs when he/she responds to a crime. The officer is responsible for responding immediately and rendering aid to those that are injured. While the officer responds and renders aid, it is important for he/she to note important facts by either writing it down, contacting dispatch, or taking mental note. These facts include the position of the victim or injured, recording spontaneous statements, paying attention to unusual actions or activities, and an assessment of the crime scene. I know it is out of order, but I believe the second and most crucial step is to secure the crime scene.
I believe there should be a dedicated team of individuals who specialize in these cases, that don’t give up as new technology and evidence arises. Concluding this paper, we have considered the JonBenet case that occurred in 1996 and how it was closed and reopened. Keeping in mind that a third of all homicide cases go unsolved, statistically this is a big number considering the number of people living in the U.S.A. We see how important it is to not compromise any evidence in a crime scene it could very well dictate the results of solving the case. Because mistakes caused by the officers, or investigators at a crime scene such as tampering with evidence, flaws in the legal system, and departments giving up on cases of up to a year many go
This ultimately results is a subsequent communication which requires the holder to disclose those passwords or taking on an additional task of tracking the passwords. In both the cases, the level of work is expanded and the police investigator has to take on additional tasks then he was initially required to. This while increasing the cost of investigation also increases the time taken in investigation. Therefore while identifying the property, or the hardware of the computer, an inclusion needs to be made in relation to the passwords that may be protecting that hardware. Similarly for the data demanded in the digital format the investigator, would have to highlight that mere data in digital format is not required, but also the passwords or the code's which restrict access to that data are also required.
(Criminal Law 101) The gathering of evidence and finding the truth is the first step before and arrest can be made, without evidence of criminal activity there would be no one to pursue. During the investigation process, there are many crucial steps beginning from the preliminary investigation. A preliminary investigation is where an inquiry is made on an alleged crime, through this phase of the investigation law enforcement can determine if a crime has been committed and whether they should conduct a full
What is the investigative judgment? Is it a time? When is it? Who is judging who? What can I do to prepare for it? What is the reward or punishment? There are many questions that surround the investigative judgment, and many fear it, either because they are unrepentant or ignorant. Though the investigative judgment may appear confusing and daunting, we can take heart, because the Spirit of Prophecy has laid out clearly, the details of what is to occur. The investigative judgment is a period of time in Heaven and on earth that began in 1844 and extends until the second coming of Christ in which God shall judge the faithful according to their works after which the righteous shall be taken to Heaven and the wicked shall remain asleep.
This essay draws conclusions as to which method the legal system should implement. The showup is a suggestive procedure. A show-up is an identification procedure in which, the police present a single suspect to an eyewitness, then ask the eyewitness whether the suspect is the perpetrator. The showup is suggestive because the witness views the suspect, whilst the suspect are in police custody.

The goal of the computer forensics is to provide information about how the crime happened, why and who is involved in the crime in any legal proceeding by using the computer forensic tools.
The increased usage of computers, phones and other electronics have led to excessive crime electronically that can be discovered by the NSA following the U.S. patriot act. Law enforcement also can get access to hard drives and emails. Although, the fourth
For financial fraud investigations large amounts of data and information needed to be collected. It involves the data gathering through database, interviewing, searches and collecting the documentary evidence. The evidence can be collected through email, faxes, chats and financial records. Through the advancement of technology there are vast means through which the evidence can be collected.
