Organizations need to make sure they have the right tools to enable digital forensics teams to determine the origin of an attack, says Dr. Gaurav Gupta, a scientist at India's Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, who describes "forensics readiness."

"One way is that you install some of the tools onto the critical infrastructure which can preserve lot of logs for you because criminals will try to delete the logs," Gupta says in an interview with Information Security Media Group (see: 'Wartime' Security Mentality Revisited)

In this in-depth interview about how forensics investigations work (see audio link below photo), Gupta also discusses:

  • The tactics criminals use to inject malicious code;
  • The steps forensics teams take to carry out an investigation;
  • The impact of changing technology on digital forensics.

Gupta is a scientist in India's Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology. He has previously worked as an assistant professor in the department of computer science and engineer at IIT-Delhi and as an assistant manager at KPMG's advisory service.
