I had previously located a statistic attributed to the FBI that there was a 90% finding of digital evidence involved in investigations both criminal and civil. I don't know how accurate that is but would like to have input from the forum if that seems accurate to you. If you can point me to a source I could use for presentation purposes that would be appreciated.

Much appreciated,

Can you provide a link to the statistics that you located?

That was my point I can't locate it again. I thought it was in the FBI bulletin, but can't find it.

My bad oops , I thought you were asking about the accuracy of the data in the mentioned statistic, and looking for "other" sources of data corroborating or denying those numbers.

I found it on a forensic company's website listed as follows

It is estimated over 85% of all infractions & crimes committed today contain a digital signature.
CSI/FBI survey

I have tried to find the original source for attribution but have been unable to do so. Does this sound reasonable?

Thanks

Yep, like here
http//www.boston-computer-forensics.com/services/whoneeds.php
and here
http//www.alltechnologynow.com/index.php/computer-forensic-services.html
it is also in this PDF
http//www.bkd.com/docs/webinars/2011/042011-presentation.pdf

The source, possibly, is actually a CSI/FBI survey
http//www.rhsmith.umd.edu/faculty/mloeb/Cybersecurity/CSIFBI%20Survey.htm
i.e. one of these
http//gocsi.com/SurveyArchive
or an earlier edition, I believe it is made since 1996…

As a side note wink

Thank you for your work on this.

You are welcome I am sure. )
If you happen to locate which actual CSI/FBI survey (i.e. which year's one) contains that bit, please do post this info.
