Its main objectives are preservation, identification, extraction and documentation of computer evidence in various Computer related crimes forwarded to the laboratory. Computer Forensics involves the use of sophisticated technology, tools and procedures.

Validation through the use of multiple software tools and procedures by the computer experts eliminate the potential problem.

Computer forensics (also known as Cyber forensic ) is a branch of digital forensic science pertaining to evidence found in computers and digital storage media. The goal of computer forensics is to examine digital media in a forensically sound manner with the aim of identifying, preserving, recovering, analyzing and presenting facts and opinions about the digital information.

Although it is most often associated with the investigation of a wide variety of computer crime, computer forensics may also be used in civil proceedings. The discipline involves similar techniques and principles to data recovery, but with additional guidelines and practices designed to create a legal audit trail.

Evidence from computer forensics investigations is usually subjected to the same guidelines and practices of other digital evidence.
