If required, volatile data should be collected first as it is the most sensitive in terms of time and the state of the computer; however, it is a more difficult and uncertain process. In addition, volatile data is not always required to meet the mandate of the investigation or the discovery project. This data can be collected only if the computer has not been turned off or rebooted. If either of these conditions occurs, the data will be lost. Collecting this data also comes with many risks. Data could be compromised during data collection and, if there is a malicious party involved, then rootkits (software programs that may be surreptitiously installed on a computer for the purpose of gaining control of the “root” or core of the operating system) may have been installed that could delete files, give false data, or perform other malicious functions.
