Other Factors to Consider in Validation Testing
Another factor of validation testing is that it examines precision, accuracy, and sensitivity. This also connects to reliability, reproducibility as well as robustness. When data is not accurate and reliable, it is difficult to be accepted in court cases, because digital forensic data is scrutinized in court to ensure that it is admissible evidence. When items are tested, they should always yield accurate results no matter the facility. A strong method should fit all of these standards.
Expert Forensic Witness Testimonies
Expert forensic witnesses should be able to uphold the data recovered and be capable of explaining the evidence in a way that the court will understand. They should have confidence in the subject and in telling the story that the recovered data produced. This helps with cases involving digital forensic evidence because each aspect supplements each other and creates a more solid case together.
Importance of Digital Forensics in Law Enforcement
Law enforcement has used digital forensics since the beginning to recover evidence to support investigations. As technology continues to develop, the more of a digital trail people leave on the internet. People’s movements on the internet and on their computers are no longer private. Databases store information about everything, so it can be easy to retrieve information on every detail about people. Finding a trail that can support an investigation could be the evidence needed to prove a case. Therefore, it’s important to have reliable and accurate digital forensics systems.
Having accurate equipment and methods to repeatedly produce reliable and precise results is important to a data forensics organization because it improves the company’s reputation and trustworthiness. Good, experienced forensic witness testimony brings more meaning to recovered digital data in a court case because it helps explain the evidence and proves the evidence is reliable.
