In order to understand the differences between a cyber forensics investigation and a forensic analysis, one must first understand what the two terms mean.
A cyber forensics investigation is defined as an activity that is conducted by law enforcement or intelligence agencies to assess the nature of computer-related crime in order to identify, locate, and apprehend those responsible. A forensic analysis, on the other hand, focuses on evaluating data gathered from computer systems in order to derive conclusions about how they were compromised and/or with what tools.
What are some examples of how this process can be achieved? One way would be through an examination of web logs. Logs are records of activity within a system (such as an email server) that include timestamps and IP addresses for user actions.
