Abstract: Cloud computing has revolutionized the way data is stored, processed and accessed, providing unprecedented scalability and flexibility to businesses and individuals alike. However, the inherent complexity and distributed nature of cloud environments also introduce new challenges for digital forensics investigations. This paper explores the emerging field of cloud forensic techniques, methodologies and tools tailored to investigate incidents in cloud environments. By reviewing existing literature and methodologies, we identify key challenges such as data privacy, evidence preservation and chain of custody maintenance. We also propose a framework for conducting cloud forensic investigations, integrating traditional forensic principles with cloud-specific considerations. Through case studies and experiments, we demonstrate the effectiveness and limitations of current cloud forensic approaches, paving the way for future research and development in this critical area of cybersecurity. Ultimately, this paper contributes to the advancement of knowledge in cloud forensic research by providing a comprehensive understanding of the challenges, methodologies and tools necessary to investigate incidents within cloud computing environments. By addressing these challenges and fostering interdisciplinary collaboration, we aim to enhance the effectiveness and reliability of cloud forensic investigations, thereby ensuring the security and trustworthiness of cloud-based services in an increasingly digital world.
