STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 997 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Digital Forensics improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 997 standard requirements:

  1. Do you share your insights and expertise about automated malware processing and defensive practices which support forensic analysis, investigations and identify root cause?

  2. Does the system allow you to do forensics on transaction histories to find other incidents of a fraud pattern or how a newly discovered type of fraud was perpetrated?

  3. What is the meaning of evidence in an environment where crime scenes themselves are mutable and can be altered, destroyed What is the Scope of Computer Forensics?

  4. How important is a thorough post-breach analysis and forensic investigation to minimizing the negative consequences of a malicious or criminal breach?

  5. Do you have effective training programs for personnel at a variety of levels, encompassing cyber threat awareness and forensic incident response?

  6. What percentage of your analytics inquiries are used for detecting events in progress, as opposed to being used for forensics and follow-up?

  7. How does a corrupted sector located in the data area of a hard drive affect the corresponding cluster number on a FAT in a FAT file system?

  8. Do you provide information on your end-to-end (preparation, emergency incident response and post-incident) incident response capabilities?

  9. Has some one stolen your critical data (financial, marketing, research, IP, customer data etc) despite having anti leak controls in place?

  10. Should the subsequent analysis follow formal forensics methodology, or should the team perform live analysis of the affected systems?

With this Three Step process you will have all the tools you need for any Digital Forensics project with this in-depth Digital Forensics Toolkit.

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose Digital Forensics projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
  • Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in Digital Forensics and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Digital Forensics investments work better.

This Digital Forensics All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
