Abstract: Computer forensics forms a vital part in the procurement for better data security. It helps law enforcement officers as well as computer forensic specialists to unveil the illegal dealings of miscreants who usually cover up their cyber crime in the foggy environment of the digital world. Computer forensics makes it easier for law enforcement officers to ferret out cyber miscreants and convict them in court. This paper introduces the concept and definition of computer forensics and the contemporary technology, methodology and relevant legislations in computer forensics science. It also depicts the roles of three groups of professionals in computer forensics and analyses their interrelationship, identifies the gap among them and tries to propose measures to bridge the gap. The ultimate aim is to work out a model for more comprehensive protection of data in computer networks.
