There are very distinct differences between Computer Professionals and specialized Computer Forensic Examiner. While both work with computers, the focus and training’s is drastically different. Normal hardware and software knowledge in no way equates to the specificity level of a computer forensics expert. The ability to safely and thoroughly examine the computers or any kind of digital evidence is a highly specialized skill that requires specialized training and systematic procedures. If anyone other than a qualified computer examiner does the job of collection or retrieval of data there is every possibility of altering, losing, or destroying the data.
