PEER DISCUSSION :
Digital forensics refers to experts’ process to identify, preserve, extract, and document information technology and computer digital evidence to be used as evidence in court cases. According to Simpson (2015), it can be defined as the applied science of looking for evidence from media such as servers, computers, networks, or mobile phones. Digital forensics usually assist the forensics groups with procedures and tools to solve the ever-increasing digital-related court cases.
Digital forensics usually assist investigators in digital cases to find and place the motive behind any crime and assist in identifying any prime suspects. Additionally, it aids in collecting any deleted data from digital media and validates them as genuine. Lastly, digital forensics can be used to prove the potential impact of any malicious digital activity on any client.
Digital forensics can be used in risk management by applying the following strategies. The first strategy is building a team with the right skills in digital forensics (Simpson, 2015). An organization should ensure that the employees working in the risk management department have the right technical skills to understand a company’s system and identify any potential risks. Those employees should have expertise in mathematics and computer science to analyze results observe patterns, and design data visualization to be used in risk identification.
Secondly, digital forensics analyses large data volumes in a bid to analyze and interpret risks. The tools used in forensics assist in reducing data threats, any security risks, and cyber risks. After data analysis, the tools used triggers alerts to the risk management team if any dangers come up. Any data comprise usually combated as quickly as it appears (Suffern, 2017).
Digital forensics sets ways in which authorized, and unauthorized digital data users can obtain it to ensure information falls in the right hands. The proper procedures are set to reduce and curb data theft. Any analyzed risks are usually monitored and evaluated continuously. The digital forensics team also ensure cloud backups, maintain data encryption, set authentication logs, and set electronic communication channels.
