A Good Case Management Workflow Is Crucial for Website Capture

Thu, 01/16/2014 - 6:46pm

Good case management workflow for website capture should include researching the suspect company background and website, identifing necessary resources required for the project, initiating and executing the project, and reporting and testimony.

Research
While it will be necessary to learn about the case, it is also necessary to conduct some standard background research on the target (suspects).

Identification
The market is not saturated with website capture applications, a successful capture typically requires combining the capabilities of the applications and utilities to accomplish your goals.

Project Initiation and Execution
Like every project, this one is no different in that it requires a plan before it can be initiated. Because you will be tasked with capturing, analyzing, and reporting on your findings, it is critical that the plan you formulate and implement is ultimately sound. It will also be important to document your methodology, create and maintain a chain of custody when sharing the captured evidence, and to routinely monitor the website and conduct additional captures as necessary.

Reporting and Testimony
Computer forensic professionals are regularly called upon to report on their findings, and reports for this portion of a project should highlight methodology, applications, appliances, utilities, findings, complications, and errors, as well as a work plan for future steps. Often, this type of project is part of a larger effort, so it is important to ensure that you provide a detailed stepwise report that relates to the overall project.
