security tools will improve the ability of law enforcement agencies to conduct network investigations.
Furthermore, there is a need to improve training, tools, techniques, and intelligence gathering to help
investigators determine when hackers gained access, their methods, what information was exposed,
their intent, and how to intruders can be apprehended or at least mitigated.
Computer forensics is a rapidly changing field, which means that computer crime is also
rapidly evolving. Furthermore, the computer systems under investigation evolve more rapidly that the
tools to examine them. The increasing usage of computers in today's society means that computer
crimes occur in all jurisdictions, from large metropolitan cities to small towns that lack the resources to
train computer forensic investigators. These combined factors often force inexperienced investigators
to examine computer crimes with inadequate and outdated tools. As cybercrime increases, there will
be an increased demand for professionally trained law enforcement personnel.
