Digital Forensics is an emerging field that has quickly become a key source of evidence in criminal and civil cases. While digital forensics has been challenging to incorporate into both criminal and civil cases, the environment of civil cases does not have the structure of the law enforcement processes to serve as a framework from which to conduct digital forensic examinations. Further, there is often a lack of understanding of digital forensic capabilities and evidence, which has the potential to influence legal judgments and misconstrue outcomes.
