Some of the standards relating to digital forensics are as given below (Digital Forensics Standards 2022):
- ISO/IEC 27037
- ISO/IEC 27041
- ISO/IEC 27043
- ISO/IEC 27050
The crime scene has many digital pieces of evidence that are collected and analyzed well can help the police to find the culprit. Here in this report, the three steps of digital forensics will be used to complete the investigation.
Collecting- There are many pieces of evidence present at the spot such as laptop, tablet, Vonage telephone, smartphone, and smartwatch. The Wi-Fi network as well can be a rich source for network-based evidence.
Analyzing- The data from all of the devices will be collected such as smartphones and watches will provide the last calls made and messages sent, the laptop will be searched for any document the person was working on or if social media site has been logged onto and so on. This evidence will help get many ideas about the interactions the person had before the incident happened. Thus, data from all of the digital devices present can provide a direction to the case.
Presenting- All of the collected evidence will be summarized and conclusions drawn from the same. The reconstructed fragments of data from the digital devices will be taken together to develop the documentation and the presentation part. The crime scene will be recreated with the help of the collected evidence so that the thought process of the criminal be understood (Ramadhani et al. 2017). The presentation will be done in a way that even a layman will understand the terminologies and get to understand the case.
