Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this qualitative case study was to identify factors that lead to procedural errors in digital forensic analysis. The study investigates the analysis phase of the examination of personal computers as part of an overall forensic analysis. The study utilized the case study methodology in order to evaluate the responses of three distinct groups of individuals who are active practitioners in law enforcement, military, corporate, and private practice. The results provided a set of factors that should be considered in establishing or validating written security policy for digital forensic analysis. This study also validated the contribution that continuous training linked to formalized procedures significantly reduced the factors that could lead to errors in digital forensic analysis.
