In this modern and high technology generation, a lot of the professions or occupations our f*****ebears came to know about are almost extinct. Some of these ***** the typing pools, filing clerks, millers, smiths, stokers and miners. Most of these jobs have been replaced by technology and pretty soon robots and robotics technology would replace other occupations as well. Before the 1980s, when ***** term "forensics" is heard *****, the first thing that would come to mind ***** a cold and dank morgue where pathologists work on the dead to de*****ine caused of death. For those in the account*****g or other numbers field, they would most likely think ***** forensics as accounting forensics wherein a thorough *****udit is done on "the books" to determine any malfeasance in generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Thus if the words computer ***** was mentioned during those days, people might think you're crazy or you might get a "Huh!" reaction.

1997 - The G8 countries declared that "Law enforcement personnel must be trained and equipped to address high-tech crimes" in the Moscow Communique of December

1998 - In March, ***** G8 appointed IICE to create international ***** for the procedures relating to digital evidence; INTERPOL *****ensic ***** Symposium

2000 - First FBI Regional ***** Forensic Laboratory established

2003 - FBI CART case load exceeds 6500 cases, examining 782 terabytes of data


***** rise of computer forensics was the result ***** ***** need to determine culpability in hacking or cybercrime activities.
