Abstract (Summary)

Cyber incidents continue to increase across the entire globe. The increase in security threats requires organizations to rethink strategies and policies continually fortifying against known and unknown threats. Cyber incident policies and response plans range from non-existent to hundreds of pages in length. A policy may include sections discussing roles and responsibility, incident detection, escalation, and many additional categories, and often discuss the collection and preservation of forensic evidence. Policies briefly address, in many cases, the proper collection of evidence; however, the written regulation concerning the potential liabilities, the risks associated with current and future litigation, and the legal consequences to a cyber incident remains sparse. The desired outcome of this paper is to enlighten the reader through identification of the risks, the potential pitfalls, and steps to policy development pertaining to the handling of electronic evidence, with a cross examination of overlapping sectors between forensics, electronic discovery, and cyber security.
