Digital Forensics is the process of examining data that has been located upon digital devices. This will often leave Digital Forensic Investigators exposed to a range of illegal material that can affect the investigator's psychological state. This is often because the investigator will view nefarious content, write an expert witness statement, present this information in a Crown court and ultimately relive the evidence. This can be a highly emotional and stressful career for many. This article will be looking into what support is available, if any, the accessibility of support available, and if there is currently enough support while cybercrimes are continuously rising in this modern age. Using secondary and primary research from investigators, this will provide a highlighted understanding of whether the potential psychological damage caused has a detrimental impact on the integrity of Digital Forensic Investigations.
