Almost every memo, spreadsheet and document is created on a computer. Whether it is a PC, Mac or Linux operating system, the computer forensics investigator must be able to identify, seize, collect and preserve electronic evidence.
Tracing the digital footprint starts upon the seizure of potential electronic evidence by an experienced analyst. As electronic media is very sensitive, assessments must be undertaken swiftly to avoid corruption or loss of crucial evidential material. Computer forensics is the discipline of identifying, extracting and preserving digital evidence found in a wide assortment of digital media – from computer hard disks to the memory contents of a mobile phone.
computer forensics forms the new fingerprints
From the 40GB home computer to the 2TB Raid 5 UNIX server, computer forensics must be conducted in a systematic and consistent manner. These techniques involve fragile data that can easily be hidden, wiped, disguised, cloaked, encrypted or even destroyed from storage media. This work can only be handled by experienced and qualified professionals; the results of the computer forensics analysis have to withstand the scrutiny of a courtroom.
We offer a 24×7 comprehensive computer forensics investigation service that involves the recovery of digital information. Our experts work with clients to determine the nature of incidents and use established forensic investigation techniques to preserve evidence, whilst maintaining its continuity and integrity.
following the footprints left by cybercriminals
Our service includes the post-analysis review of computer forensics investigation results and the preparation of a detailed investigation report. If criminal or other legal proceedings are necessary we can produce witness statements and attend court to deliver expert testimony in support of the computer forensics analysis undertaken and material found.
All our investigations are conducted within a physically and electronically secure environment and when undertaken at client premises we strive to conduct our work with minimal disruption to your business. Computer forensics examinations are conducted in strict compliance with the guidelines issued by the Association of Chief Police Officers for managing digital evidence. We are actively implementing quality management systems to achieve compliance with ISO 17025 and practice recommendations from the Home Office Forensic Science Regulator. Our systematic approach to digital media investigations can significantly reduce the cost and time of an internal investigation (and of any court-ordered disclosure).
Our forensic computing specialists are completely independent and accept instructions on behalf of both the Crown Prosecution Service, Police authorities, Defence Solicitors and corporations.
