The chapter is organized as follows. In the next section we will give an overview of most important standards and best practice guides covered in this chapter, in order to show a big picture of what has been happening in this space since the early 1990s when electronic evidence started becoming an important area for law enforcement and forensic practitioners to look at seriously.
