Digital Forensics is the investigation and recovery of data contained in digital devices. This data is often the subject of investigations in litigation, proof of guilt, and corrective action in an organization.

You can be the one with the important skillset to help your organization furnish the irrefutable digital evidence it requires as proof in a court of law.
