The forensic examination of the contents of a computer is a skilled job and special procedures, techniques and tools are required to ensure that any information that is retrieved can be presented as evidence in a court:
- Evidential Integrity requires that the material being examined is not changed in any way. What is examined must be an exact copy of the original.
- Continuity of Evidence refers to the means used to vouch for the actions that have taken place regarding the item under examination. This covers the seizure, handling and storage of equipment and copies.
