Get the forensicating mug.
A word made up by senior officers and management to spuriously and incorrectly describe the process of forensically examining a crime scene. The word is not recognised by forensic examiners as having any valid or useful meaning. Often used by uninformed and untrained individuals to give the impression of knowledge of forensic science and forensic examination techniques.

Get the Forensicate mug.
A term to describe digital forensic examiners. This term was originally created by BJ Lachner and has been popularized by Rob Lee of the SANS Institute. The term first came into public use on April 1st, 2007 on the Cyberspeak digital forensic podcast.

The term is sometimes used in the phrase "Lethal Forensicator" to describe elite forensicators.

An easy way to identify a lethal forensicator is to ask them to produce their SANS Institute’s Digital Forensics “Lethal Forensicator” Coin aka the RMO (Round Metal Object) which is awarded by the SANS Institute to select lethal forensicators
When I first started out in digital forensics, I was just doing Nintendo forensics. I've learned so much since then that I'm now a lethal forensicator.
