Hey Karan, a Cyber Security Forensic Expert analyze a security breach to determine how it happened and try to collect the evidence to prove who would have committed the breach. You can also be asked to train the first responders to deal with any electronics such as computers, hard drives or portable drives. If any electronics are tampered with, your investigation might lose information or break the chain of evidence, rendering any evidence tainted and inadmissible in a court. A Forensic Expert is called in once a security breach has been discovered.

Hey! Basicaly, a Forensic Expert is like the detective in a crime movie but the only difference is that a Forensic Expert looks for digital evidence. And the crime in movies is the CyberCrime for the Forensic Expert.

These are the things that a Forensic Expert usually does:

  • Investigate data breach and security incident
  • Recover and examine data from computers and electronic storage devices possibly involved in the crime
  • Try to retrieve lost data by dismantling and rebuilding damaged systems
  • Collect evidence for legal cases
  • Prepare evidence for trial
  • Discuss with the attorneys about electronic evidence in a case
  • Train law enforcement officers on computer evidence procedures
  • Research on new techniques of CyberCrime and learn how to identify them/avoid them
