Digital forensics is the method of gathering, reporting, and evaluating digital data in a way that is lawfully acceptable. It can be utilized in identifying and averting offense in any particular dispute where a proof has been presented and stored digitally. It follows a similar procedure as other forensics do. As part of the digital forensic management of Triton Corporation, it is my duty to be aware of scientific operations and the proper guidelines that are required during this process. 

The elements of a computer forensic examination and strategies are very straightforward and easy. Digital evidence first needs to be gathered before it is examined, and this is done through critical analysis. During the analysis stage, the digital evidence is thoroughly assessed keeping in mind the scope of the case to be able to determine the next course of action that the individuals should  take (Goodman-Delahunty Jane & Mandeep 35). Acquisition of the evidence is the next process. As the digital proof is delicate and can be transformed or spoiled by wrong handling, an investigation is conducted well on the replica of the original evidence. It is, therefore, paramount that the unique proof is collected carefully in a way that conserves the reliability of the evidence. Inspection is the next stage of forensic determination of the evidence. The fundamental purpose here is to remove and examine the digital proof. Retrieval of information from its source is done, and proper analysis is conducted to come up with correct data. In the final stage of the forensic examination, the observations and actions are documented through the forensic processing of the evidence (Lewis 74). It is a vital stage as it reveals the results of the forensic examination that have been done. The final forensic report should, therefore, include all these elements and have a procedural documentation of how the investigation was carried out.
