Are We Ready For Digital Evidence?

Are we ready for digital evidence? It’s a question that we need to ask more often as crimes will inevitably include forensic evidence gathered from a computer or other digital device on a more consistent basis. Similarly, we still live in a world where we think the computer and what we do on it or any digital device for that matter is irrelevant to something like a criminal case. Yet that said, an example of such a case has come about the Casey Anthony murder trial that took place here in the states just recently. It’s not a case where cyber security is or was a concern, but where the computer’s average use such as searching the internet and uploading to social networking is seen as being malicious.
