Digital Forensics is a discipline that primarily focuses on the post-incident side of an investigation. However, during the last decade, there is a considerable amount of research that considers proactive measures taken by an organization. Such measures comprise a digital forensic readiness plan. This paper first presents research initiatives on forensic readiness across the public sector and the academia, and then critically evaluates their motivations and objectives by pointing out gaps that need bridging. Lastly, it informally proposes steps to guide the formulation of a forensic readiness policy.
