dc.description.abstract A coordinated approach to digital forensic readiness (DFR) in a large organisation requires the management and monitoring of a wide variety of resources, both human and technical. The resources involved in DFR in large organisations typically include staff from multiple departments and business units, as well as network infrastructure and computing platforms. The state of DFR within large organisations may therefore be adversely affected if the myriad human and technical resources involved are not managed in an optimal manner. This paper contributes to DFR by proposing the novel concept of a digital forensic readiness management system (DFRMS). The purpose of a DFRMS is to assist large organisations in achieving an optimal level of management for DFR. In addition to this, we offer an architecture for a DFRMS. This architecture is based on requirements for DFR that we ascertained from an exhaustive review of the DFR literature. We describe the architecture in detail and show that it meets the requirements set out in the DFR literature. The merits and disadvantages of the architecture are also discussed. Finally, we describe and explain an early prototype of a DFRMS. en_US
