Introducing Computer Forensics 3 The Preliminary Action of a Computer Forensics Investigation For a while now, information technology department have been the victim of all kinds of computer fraud and abuse. Incidents like malicious attack of data, unauthorized access, hacking and disclosure of important and confidential material. A computer crime survey report 51% that organization suffers financial loss due to computer incident, 31% of organization never report a dollar amount, 74% acknowledge a loss as a result of computer crime and 42% report a loss of over 250,000.000 (Wright, 2000). The reason it’s so difficult for accounting and assessing computer crime cost is because there is little information that’s good about what computer crime is and how you are suppose to investigate it. Most crime go unnoticed and most attacks are not reported (Wright, 2000). Why do we initiate an investigation? Because we want to find out the truth to the case, but the truth may not be the truth. We will conduct this investigation to seek the facts. This is a guideline as the basic for a discussion in the dispute resolution of what you can expect from a conducted investigation. A company may conduct an investigation of an employee incurred injury in the workplace, a sexual harassment or a fight among two employees, no matter what the case is a company must learn the facts to resolve the issue in a fairly manner. An investigation is a collection in a systematic way, of facts to describe what happen and explain why it happens. Systematic is a term which basically means through and fair. An investigator will collect facts only related to the incident, which is under investigation and explain and describe it to a company what happen in the incident (Abound, 2004).
