Abstract

With increased use of technology in organizations and rapid changes in technology cyber forensic process is also advancing into new ways. In this context, organizations also need to align their technological infrastructure to meet the challenges in conducting successful process of forensic investigations to attain maximum and desired benefits of it. The objective of this article is to perceive the status of different I.T comprising organizations in terms of cyber crime and forensic investigation process and we take Pakistan as a case here. For this purpose, a questionnaire was designed to survey different organizations to find out that how effectively they have secured their technology infrastructure and how supportive this setup could be for any forensic firm to perform the forensic investigation in case of occurrence of any cyber crime. In the critical analysis, the main finding reckoned as flaw found in these organizations was that they don't pay much importance to forensic investigation and because of this they don't incorporate forensic supportive tools such as employees’ awareness training programs, clauses in hiring documents and acquiring the services of forensic firms as per requirement. This ignorance may lead organizations towards different types of losses in case of occurrence of cyber crime and if this situation is not addressed, forensic investigation process also could not be as accurate and successful as it has to be.
