Benefits of Forensics
Incident Response Assistance
One important facet of a forensics investigation is to provide some incident response assistance. Forensics helps close the window of opportunity of the breach, which may even take place before the real forensic investigation begins. In this step(s) the investigator tries to find where you’re vulnerable, or how the attacker got into your system, and how to prevent future (successful) hacks.
