According to NIST, which step in the digital forensics process involves preparing and presenting information that resulted from scrutinizing data?

  •  examination
  • collection
  • reporting
  • analysis
    Answers Explanation & Hints:

    NIST describes the digital forensics process as involving the following four steps:

    • Collection – the identification of potential sources of forensic data and acquisition, handling, and storage of that data
    • Examination – assessing and extracting relevant information from the collected data. This may involve decompression or decryption of the data
    • Analysis – drawing conclusions from the data. Salient features, such as people, places, times, events, and so on should be documented
    • Reporting – preparing and presenting information that resulted from the analysis. Reporting should be impartial and alternative explanations should be offered if appropriate
