By far and away, the last couple of years have seen a rise in the importance and need for digital forensics and this has been in a way or two attributed to the growth in both computer and cellular markets. Generally speaking, digital forensics basically involves the process where an expert accesses a technological device like a smartphone or computer so as to establish whether these particular devices are being watched or have been watched and to monitor the activity logs on these particular gadgets.
As the demand for new technology in the cellphone market increases, we see an equal increase in the market of spyware and malware. Talking of cellphone forensics, this is largely a broad term in the digital forensics field that includes a wide variety of duties in this particular area of practice. In these, we see such tasks as the detection and removal of spyware and malware, ability to recover deleted texts, recovery of deleted or lost cellphone records, call details and the like as some of the most common tasks.
It is to be noted that spyware and malware are all cybercrimes as in law. These crimes can be so detrimental to you as an individual going forward. Cybercriminals can make use of this software to dig into some of the personal information that you may have used online in such processes such as online shopping and banking which may give them access to such sensitive and personal information such as credit and debit card numbers. Over and above this, they may as well use these software to gain access or hack your systems to gain some of the sensitive and personal information that you may have stored on your PC and or cellphones. Even your social security number may be at risk of breach with these software. It is for these reasons that we see such a rise in the cases and instances of identity theft as has been the case over the recent past. Actually, looking at most of the cases of identity thefts as we have seen over the past, majority of them have a link to matters of cybercrimes.
