Cyber forensics is the application of investigation and analysis techniques to gather and preserve evidence from a particular computing device in a way that is suitable for presentation in a court of law. The goal of computer forensics is to perform a structured investigation while maintaining a documented chain of evidence to find out exactly what happened on a computing device and who was responsible for it.
Investigators use a variety of techniques and proprietary software forensic applications to examine the copy, searching hidden folders and unallocated disk space for copies of deleted, encrypted, or damaged files. Any evidence found on the digital copy is carefully documented in a "finding report" and verified with the original in preparation for legal proceedings that involve discovery, depositions, or actual litigation.

I can honestly say the only interesting part of the whole case was the initial meeting with the client; listening to their story, asking questions, and taking notes. Everything after that was extremely boring, which was literally 95% of the job. I knew almost right away after I started bookmarking, that this career was not for me. Depending on the size of the hard drive, I could have been bookmarking for another 7 hours! I am so lucky I was able to have this experience before I possibly started a CF degree, classes, or even certifications. I definitely feel like most schools/websites build this career up to be something it is totally not. Hey, if you don’t mind staring at a computer screen scrolling through data/info for 80-90% of your job, then all the power to you but I definitely wouldn’t. I honestly can say I like my NOC job twice as much as CF. Don’t get me wrong, you could get an interesting case every now and then, but 90% of time it won’t be too interesting.
