The ever-growing threats of fraud and security incidents present many challenges to law enforcement and organisations across the globe. This has given rise to the need for organisations to build effective incident management strategies, which will enhance the company-s reactive capability to security incidents. The aim of this paper is to propose proactive activities an organisation can undertake in order to increase its ability to respond to security incidents and create a digitally forensic ready workplace environment. The study constitutes exploratory research, with the use of a systematic literature review as a basis to identify activities relating to a digitally forensic ready environment.While much has been written about how organisations can prepare to respond to security incidents, findings show an absence of a digital forensic readiness model. This paper concludes by presenting such a conceptual model. This study contributes to the greater body of knowledge on the design and implementation of a digital forensic readiness programme, aimed at maximising the use of digital evidence in an organisation.
