This research paper will describe cyber forensics, also known as computer forensics, which is a subdivision of digital forensic science, relating to evidence detection in computers and digital storage media. The purpose of cyber forensics is the forensically-sound investigation of digital media with the intent to: identify, preserve, recover, analyze, present facts, and opinions; concerning the digital information. Even though it is generally allied with the analysis of cyber-based crimes, computer forensics may also be used in civil proceedings. Evidence composed from cyber forensic analysis is typically subjected to similar procedures and performs as supplementary digital evidence. With these advancements, it was desired that cyber forensics be to protect users and remain citizen-centric. It also shows that there is additional research needed to understand the implications of cyber forensic research to improve detection of cyber-crimes.
