Cloud computing has brought many to the world of computers. Unfortunately it also created new opportunities for criminal activities. This paper used a descriptive literature review to determine the issues that are currently influencing digital investigations. The results show that there are many unaddressed issues affecting the identification, preservation and acquisition of evidence in the cloud. Very little research has been done to solve these problems and where research exists, it is still far from being implemented in practice.
