    Digital Forensic Readiness is defined as the pre-incident plan that deals with an organization's ability to maximize digital evidence usage and anticipate litigation. The inadequacy of technical research and legislations and the ever-increasing need for evidence preservation mechanisms has brought the need for a common forensic readiness standard.
