Any electronic module produces Data that can be used as evidence in a cybercrime, security alert, or cyber-attack, yet data collection, administration, and preservation are routinely neglected. In the legal area, once information is received from devices, it is critical to keep it safe and secure from the moment it is obtained until the prosecution or inquiry is over. Digital evidence preservation is critical when determining its legality in a current trial, a future trial, an appeal, or as a repository of historical information. This study analyses concept, related projects, technologies, and legal support in digital preservation in criminal investigation institutions. A framework to maintain digital information, respect the dignity, therefore boosting acceptability, and supplemented by long-term preservation methods is the inspiration with this paper.
