Forensic Readiness plan will not be helpful when a crisis is in the system but it will be useful before anything occur. There is an article, “A Ten Step Process for Forensic Readiness” (2004), the writer mentions it is

Such profit includes crime blockage, reducing the costs by applying the structural and systematic accost to storage of the evidence, displaying due assiduity and perfect corporate management of property data, and determined that regulative provisions have met.
