Favorite Analogies to Translate Computer Forensic Concepts

Post Posted: Apr 27, 17 02:40

What are some of your favorite/best/most frequently used/understood analogies that help you translate the sometimes dense concepts and/or technical lingo of computer forensics and our understanding of our work to those who aren't as technically-oriented? What are some of the key phrases you use when speaking with clients/attorneys/while testifying, etc. that help to quickly and effectively convey your message? For example, one of the analogies we use is that if you think of data on a hard drive like a neighborhood, when data is deleted on a computer it's similar to removing the address number of the houses. That makes the houses difficult to reference/distinguish, be directed to or to find, but the house itself remains.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated (and surely by not only me).
