Upon detecting a security breach, data breach, or other cyber incident, an organization must conduct, as part of its incident response plan, a detailed forensic review and analysis of what occurred. Cyber forensics, also known as computer forensics or digital forensics, refers to the structured process of isolating the affected devices and networks, gathering evidence, examining the evidence, evaluating the extent of damage, and analyzing the timeline or sequence of events. The forensics phase will be followed by data recovery and remediation.
