Digital Forensics is a broad term within the IT field. Many use the term in the context of tracking the origin of hacks and general system breaches while to others it refers to data that can be presented to a court.

The term “Forensics” emanates from the Latin “In-Forensis” which translates loosely to “before the people” In keeping with this, forensics is effectively the presentation of data in a replicable and auditable manner without changing the original.

Frequently Asked Questions

There’s much more to Forensic Investigation than just the title. While we often see conventional “PI’s” using the title, this is incorrectly done.

A Forensic Investigator applies scientific principles and methodology to the investigative task. In most Forensic Investigators you will find an underlying scientific discipline. This could be data-science, medical science etc. however there will be a scientific basis upon which their investigative efforts rest.

In South Africa a Forensic Investigator will typically have an underlying qualification in perhaps law, auditing, computer sciences or similar. In addition to these, they will hold an investigative certification which could be as a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) or Forensic Practitioner (FP)SA for example.

It more than matters – it’s vital. Membership of the appropriate bodies means that the Forensic Investigator that you’re dealing with has been vetted as competent in their area of expertise – and most importantly that they are bound by a code of conduct and ethics.

Much depends on the length and complexity of the engagement as well as the level of experience of the investigator. Rates can vary from R 950/ hour to R 3000/hour depending on experience and their underlying skills and qualifications.

 You should ideally look for Forensic Investigators with the CFE or (FP)SA certifications who are able to show that their certifications are current and up to date (yes, they do expire if not regularly maintained).

 You should ideally look for Forensic Investigators with the CFE or (FP)SA certifications who are able to show that their certifications are current and up to date (yes, they do expire if not regularly maintained).

This is what separates Forensic Investigators from general investigators. The key is in the methodical approach, clear and direct findings as well as intricate cross reference to timelines and source/ evidentiary documentation. When drafting the report, your Forensic Investigator knows full well that the report will probably end up in court and he will need to substantiate each finding within it. These are meticulously drafted documents and each investigators formatting, and construction of his report will vary from the next.  This is where the experience of the investigator shines through.
