This brings up the idea that one must know evil to find evil.  During this course I have talked about how a forensic analyst would benefit from having knowledge of the crimes they are investigating. As an ethical hacker, one must know how to exploit a system. Be aware of all the artifacts left behind, and know how to create the desired result.

Intrusion investigation is an exciting and dynamic process that requires strong technical skills and effective case management, often requiring a team of digital investigators and forensic examiners. In practice it sometimes seems like controlled chaos, particularly when an intruder is still active on the victim systems. Digital investigators have a better chance of navigating the challenges and complexities of intrusion investigations if they follow the scientific method and scope assessment cycle. In addition, the success of this type of investigation depends heavily on having a mechanism to keep track of the investigative and forensic subtasks.
