The search for evidence on a computer should only be done by a trained and experienced computer forensic examiner.

Is there a lack of rigor in the digital forensics discipline?

For my Master of Science Degree in Information Security and Assurance (MSISA) I wrote my thesis about the overall lack of standards, certifications, and accreditation in the digital forensics discipline ( available here ). This lack of rigor within our profession may very well jeopardize the credibility of our discipline.
