As the world becomes more digitally connected, computer forensics becomes more important every day. For the purpose of identifying cybercriminals and recovering crucial, stolen data, digital evidence management is essential. Computer forensics aids in the identification, gathering, and archiving of evidence from an electronic device by utilizing technology and investigation procedures to make the information usable in the court of law as evidence. Computer forensics conducts a structured investigation and upholds a chain of evidence to pinpoint precisely what happened on computing equipment and who was responsible for it. There is no single codified statute or law in India that addresses computer forensics. The reason might be that technology law in India is still in its infancy. In order to combat cybercrime using the most up-to-date forensic technology, it is necessary to alter current regulations and create a new techno-legal framework. The present paper explores types of cyber forensics and the investigation procedure for obtaining such information. Further, the paper also ponders on the question of whether cyber forensics breaches an individual’s right to privacy and if there is any way to keep the person’s private information safe.
