Studying the communication pattern of scientific information produced as a result of academic and industrial research using mapping techniques is part of scientometric studies. In this chapter, the bibliographic data related to computer forensics retrieved from SCOPUS is subjected to mapping and visualizing. The results showed that the computer forensics literature grows exponentially. USA ranks first among the countries contributing to the literature growth. The University of South Australia is top ranking institution and K.K.R. Choo is the top-ranking author. Conference proceedings are the dominant form of communication flow. The scientograph of keywords reveals six clusters and the keywords with high frequency of occurrences are computer crime, security of data, network security, electronic crime countermeasures, digital forensic, internet, cryptography, cloud computing, cyber security, malware, and intrusion detection.
