Since the early to mid-1980s, legal cases involving computer crime, like hacking, have utilized the field of computer forensics to obtain legal evidence on computers and other media. The process involves the extraction, identification and analysis of the information; from which an examiner prepares facts and opinions about the data. Computer forensics also involves the recovery and preservation of data on damaged media.


The facts collected from computer forensics are subject to the same scrutiny and guidelines as any other evidence.
