The advent of technological innovations such as the Internet of Things has exposed many organizations and individuals to security issues. This therefore has resulted in a broader perspective of risk management and investigation, that employs investigative forensic techniques. Internet of Things for instance provides a lot of information that would eventually help solve crimes pf great magnitudes. There are several investigative forensic approaches involved to ensure risk management in organisations is a success (Chen & Zhu 2019).
One main focus in investigative forensics is the data, which is much available, due to the existence of technological advents that have made data management a centralised venture. Forensic investigators always target computer database for key information while trying to unravel crime acts that involve technology. It is therefore imperative that organisations have a robust data management approaches that streamlines storage and access.
In addition to data management, organisations can always leverage from forensic investigations by ensuring maximum utilisation of all technological gargets engaged at the organisation sites. These include all the Internet of Thigs, IoT, devices. This is mainly because IoT devices do have the ability to always collect and store data and information on their own. In this case solving cases such as murder, unauthorised sharing of corporate information and data and/ or burglary is made easy (Hou et al. 2020).Investigative forensics techniques can always be leveraged to ensure organizations become safe places to work. This is only possible if organisations ensure maximum cooperation, by ensuring that technological innovations engaged always provide adequate data that can aide in solving potential risks in a business environment.
Organizations encounter many interior and exterior parameters that influence the extent to which the business can meet its mission, vision, and objectives. The economic environment has been uncertain and companies can attempt to reduce their risks and define mechanisms of proceeding with their activities if the forecasted risk happens. It is important to note that most uncertainties are caused by risks, making the organizations to focus more on the risk management mechanisms (Cervantes-Cabrera & Carmen, 2018). When companies make their objectives without identifying their risks, they will lose their focus.
When an organization implements effective risk management, it supports business and strategic planning, support proper utilization of corporate resources, protect corporate specific objectives and goals, and improve budgeting, and decision making. As a result, the organization becomes more confident about the future and the current decisions that they make. Furthermore, it creates a secure and safe business environment that favorable to both the customers and the employees as risk management also enhances communication amid stakeholders and directors (Almeida, et al., 2019). This will make the business operations more stable by reducing legal liabilities. Appropriate risk management mechanisms will also help protect the organization from harmful and detrimental events by securing all the people and assets involved.
Moreover, investigative forensics are important to an organization since they help increase an organization’s preparedness by ensuring appropriate mechanisms that minimize the impacts of a security incident. This means that investigative forensics ensures appropriate care for the organization. Forensics will help identify the security protocols that have been breached, the impact of the security incident, and identify whether the organization’s current security protocols are appropriate (Mircheska et al., 2020). When necessary changes are needed to the security infrastructure, investigative forensics will identify the specific areas where additional security is required.
