Abstract: Information Systems and Network Communications has become part of our everyday life. In recent times, there has been a massive growth in computer and electronic devices as well as network-based systems either for e-commerce, e-government or internal processes within organizations. Human beings can no longer be separated from electronic devices and the internet technology. The need for information security is increasing rapidly as a result of the amount of information made available on systems and networks which are connected on the internet. The dependence on information systems and the data that is stored, processed, and transmitted by them has recorded a tremendous increase in the rate of cyber-crimes; rise of information warfare, and threat of cyber terrorism which has even led many companies, organizations and even nations to thoroughly investigate the protection of its critical infrastructures from information, systems, and network based attacks. Therefore, it is very essential to provide an effective security measure and system that ensures the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information systems, networks, and the services and resources made available. This can be achieved using biometric and digital forensic technology (BDFT).
