Term Definition
Acquisition of Digital Evidence

Begins when information or physical items are collected or stored for examination purposes. The term ‘evidence’ implies that the collector of evidence is recognized by the courts. The process of collecting is also assumed to be a legal process and appropriate for rules of evidence in that locality. A data object or physical item only becomes evidence when so deemed by a law enforcement official or designee.
