Since the advent of technology has taken a leap into the air, the activity of Cyber crimes and Cyber terrorism has also deflated the computer technology. Now and then there is a flash of articles describing the frauds caused by the Cyber criminals, or the hackers trying to invade an innocent individual's privacy. These cases have really annoyed the FBI and the police department all over the world. It seems that we are just bearing the results of innovations in the technical field. However, the things are not as bad as they look. The concept of computer forensics has been developed by the experts to avoid the Cyber harassment, and it has proven quintessentially useful in counterattacking the sexual predators, hackers, murderers and even terrorists. It is a technical boon.
The use of computer forensics has become inevitable in punishing and finding some of the well-known criminals in the society. The terrorist organizations make the use of the Internet to include the members in their group and the heinous sexual predators use the social networking sites to stalk teenagers and vulnerable individuals seeking for Internet pleasure. How often we have heard about the cases of young girls and boys being trapped in this Cyber web? Almost on daily basis! These people make fake profiles and sometimes take the individual to their illegal groups in far-off countries. It is really an unimaginable thing what these technical tyrants can do with one click.
The computer forensic scientists have made a technology for protecting the mobile device from connecting to a network of cellular carrier. These people no longer turn off the device to cut off from the network. For example, the radio frequency protected test enclosure boxes, prevent the signals from entering or leaving the gadget. They also make use of the Faraday bag used in joining with conduction mesh. This helps in deserting the device. Through such innovation the investigators can transport the cellular device to the lab even when it is switched on.
 evidence recovery
The expert professionals identify the evidence recovery from the computer files and the encrypted data. They request the evidence computer log on, name and password, or sometimes the personal identification number. They also request an evidence email, email log on, name, password and pin. The evidence computer encryption codes, passwords and software for the program files are also requested if they are applicable to the evidence recovery process.
While one can be an expert in doing heinous crimes, he would still be a normal human being and not a robot. The well-known criminals of the world got caught because of their silly mistakes. These people failed to cover their tracks while using the Cyber space for their activities. They seemed to lack a simple knowledge about the deletion of files and how they still remain saved on the hard drives. These mistakes helped the investigators to track the evidence recovery and catch the fiends.
It is a fact that even when the criminals delete their files, the data remains in the binary format by data remembrance or the residual representation of the data. If we delete the file it just gets removed from the user but the original file still exists.
We are well aware with the traditional forensic science, but now this is the advent of digital forensics, which is a big challenge for the evildoers. The information in the computer can be transformed without leaving a sign. The data to be configured is huge and diverse data types are also enormous. Just like the traditional data investigator, the digital expert must be able to track and combine any data that is found in the device simply anywhere on the planet.
