NDFC (National Digital Forensic Center)
Following the establishment of the National Digital Forensic Center (“NDFC”) in 2008 to combat crimes that are becoming increasingly sophisticated and intelligent, the Supreme Prosecutors’ Office of the Republic of Korea launched the Forensic Science Investigation Department by integrating scientific investigation-related departments in 2015. Since then, the NDFC has advanced the forensic science investigation system by expanding the specialized manpower and facilities and introducing hi-tech investigation equipment. The NDFC is constantly striving to identify substantial truth through rapid and precise analysis of evidences extracted from various data, resarches on scientific investigation and analysis techniques, and collection and analysis techniques of digital evidences. In addition, the NDFC has established partnerships with 24 national and international organizations, held the general assembly of the 2017 ISFG (International Society of Forensic Genetics), and enforced the G7 24/7 cyber crime response network cooperation system so as to lead the international standard of forensic science investigation worldwide.
