Often, it is not sufficient to simply copy files from a source and assume your data set is complete. When doubt arises regarding the entirety of a data set, it is time to move to forensic methods and recover what someone may be trying to hide.
Computer Forensics entails using tactical methods to uncover facts within computer-based information. Three of the most useful aspects of computer forensics include:
- Recovery of deleted files
- Restoration of data from various media
- Bypassing encrypted or password-protected files
79% of employees admit to sharing confidential information with other companies via e-mail and 1 in 10 employees have received confidential company information via e-mail.
