Digital Forensics is not just the recovery of data or information from computer systems and their networks. It is not a procedure that can be accomplished by software alone, and most important, it is not something that can be accomplished by other than a trained IT forensic professional.

It is also the art of detecting, processing, and examining digital fingerprints. [For complete proceedings, see ED490133.]
