Computer forensics scientists identify, preserve and extract electronic evidence, and do so in a manner that can be documented and explained.  Computer forensics is the application of science and engineering to the legal evidence found in computers, mobile devices, and other digital storage media.  Computer forensics involves examining digital evidence in a forensically sound manner, with the goals of preservation, identification, extraction, documentation and interpretation.


In the late 1980′s U.S. Senate investigators recovered 758 e-mails Oliver North believed he had deleted regarding the Iran-Contra affair.  North was subsequently indicted for lying under oath to congress.  In 2004, computer forensics experts were able to recover deleted files from a floppy disk that resulted in the arrest and conviction of the BTK killer.  More recently, computer forensics has played a part in the trials of Casey Anthony and Dr. Conrad Murray.


Today, computer forensics can be used to identify and recover evidence for use in a wide range of civil and criminal proceedings.  In addition, electronic evidence can by utilized by employers in documenting employee misconduct.
