Cybercrime and financial fraud
Forensic Investigation, also known as digital forensics or computer forensics, is the process of collecting, preserving, analyzing, and presenting digital evidence in a legally admissible manner to investigate and resolve cybercrimes, data breaches, and other digital incidents. It involves using specialized techniques and tools to uncover digital artifacts and reconstruct events to determine what happened, how it happened, and who was responsible. Forensic investigations are conducted by trained professionals, often in law enforcement, cybersecurity firms, or incident response teams.
Incident handling is the process of identifying, managing, and resolving cybersecurity incidents to minimize their impact on an organization’s information systems and data. The primary goal of incident handling is to detect and respond to security breaches, cyberattacks, or other malicious activities promptly and effectively.
Financial Fraud Investigation involves the examination and analysis of fraudulent activities related to financial transactions, investments, or other monetary dealings. It aims to uncover evidence of financial crimes such as embezzlement, money laundering, Ponzi schemes, accounting fraud, and other forms of illegal financial activities.
Resolving financial frauds involves a combination of investigative techniques, legal actions, and the use of specialized tools to gather evidence and identify the culprits responsible for the fraudulent activities.
