The first step in our process is to determine how our digital forensic expertise is of most use to you. Timing, electronic media available, objectives and of course, type of case, governs the rest of the forensic examination process and even what forensic methodology is best for your case.
As soon as any electronic data becomes possible evidence in a legal matter, data preservation is the first priority. To make that “bit for bit” forensic image, it’s not just about what’s on a hard drive but about preserving the integrity so it will hold up in court. All electronic media are viable sources of digital evidence that can be acquired in our forensic lab or on-site for your convenience.
Using specialized forensic tools and industry standard methodologies, we analyze deeply mined digital evidence including deleted data to accurately portray what occurred, when it occurred, how it occurred and who may have been responsible.
A comprehensive forensics report can be one of the most important outcomes of the forensic analysis, because a well-written, understandable analysis can be the defining difference in your case. Our forensic reports include details about the legal issue(s), analyzed digital evidence, how and why it was analyzed, as well as our expert opinion on the analysis findings.
The court and jurors rely upon our lay testimony to better understand the technical facts about the electronic evidence as well as our opinions about the what, when, how and who happenings related to the case. Our seasoned experts have both criminal and civil testimony experience in the United States and internationally.
Data can appear “lost” for reasons including hardware malfunction and data corruption but easily recoverable with the right training and experience. Our digital forensic examiners dive deep into areas of digital media even seasoned IT professionals can’t mine to get your data back. We’re trained and experienced in forensics methodologies and legalities, so whether it’s a personal or a legal matter, your digital data holds up.
