Abstract

Computer forensics is a field that developed from the introduction of new technologies which is readily accessible, affordable and heavily depended upon by both individuals and businesses. The speed in which these technologies have evolved brings both advantages and disadvantages to all. New criminal activity accompanied the development of technologies often referred to a cybercrime or e-crime presenting challenges to law enforcers. This chapter attempts to provide an unbiased perspective from the law enforcement arena, critically assessing the importance of proper education and training to handle, manage and investigate computer evidence and lastly the importance of having a form of accreditation to validate experience, skills, and qualifications.
