Abstract: With the explosion of digital crime, digital forensics is more often applied. The digital forensic discipline developed rather rapidly, but up to date very little international standardisation with regard to processes, procedures or management has been developed.

This article provides a brief overview of the current international standards in the digital forensics domain. It describes the necessity of international standards and briefly explains the international standard structure. This article also explains the practical problems that editors of international standard face, especially with regard to digital forensic standards. Lastly, this article looks at future standardisation work in the digital forensics field.
