Forensics, IT or otherwise is related to a legal process.

People who aren't associated with law enforcement, engaged in the 
forensic investigation of alleged crimes, simply need to stop using the 
word "forensics" and start using the word "investigations".

Within ten years there will be no difference between a private 
investigator and what we consider today to be digital/computer forensics 
performed by non-LE in the context of purely internal matters or in the 
context of civil litigation. If a crime has not been committed then what 
you're doing is not "forensics" even if everyone else does still call it 
that today.
