Abstract

As days pass and the cyber space grows, so does the number of computer crimes. The need for enterprise computer forensic capability is going to become a vital decision for the CEO’s of large or even medium sized corporations for information security and integrity over the next couple of years. Now days, most of the companies don’t have in house computer/digital forensic team to handle a specific incident or a corporate misconduct, but having digital forensic capability is very important and forensic auditing is very crucial even for small to medium sized organizations. Most of the corporations and organizations are still not aware of the risks and this can be very harmful in the long run. This paper will particularly focus on examining different aspects of enterprise computer forensics with inhouse forensics capability. It will also try to clarify some of the issues that surround enterprise computer forensics.
