The volume of digital information in the world is growing at a scarily fast rate. In fact, 90 percent of the digital data that exists worldwide today was created within the last two years and it’s not slowing down with, 2.5 quintillion bytes of new data created each and every day.

If you are investigating any matter, whether it is a crime, an administrative or civil issue, or trying to figure out how your network was compromised, you need evidence. If you are gathering intelligence you need information. The simple reality is that these days the vast majority of potential evidence or information that we can use, whether it is for investigations, court, or intelligence purposes, is digital in nature. To effectively conduct digital investigations, one needs to understand exactly what digital evidence is, where to find it, the issues affecting digital evidence, and the unique challenges facing digital evidence. This will allow one to understand the crucial role that digital forensics plays with regards to digital evidence.
