Athena Forensics have considerable experience in working with local, regional and national government agencies where digital evidence requires analysis.
We have worked on a number of cases in the public sector including education authorities, trading standards, the Environment Agency, councils and other public bodies and can attend a site after normal office hours to conduct the preliminary stages of a computer forensic investigation.
If required we can carry out on-site work which can be covert if necessary and be carried out at short notice.
Our experts take an ‘image’ of the data required leaving the original media in situ, causing little or no disruption to the business and produce their findings in a clear and concise report that can be used to assist in any resulting disciplinary or tribunal proceedings.
The volatile nature of digital evidence means that specialist equipment and skills are requirement to ensure that all potential evidence is captured and the integrity of the evidence is maintained.
Athena Forensics’ experts have carried out over 1000 computer forensic investigations, all of our experts are fully compliant with the National Police Chiefs’ Council Good Practice Guide for Computer Based Evidence and use tried and tested methodologies.
Our Experts have a vast amount of experience of giving evidence in court and are highly qualified to present evidence of opinion as well as evidence of fact. Athena Forensics can be instructed to investigate a range of misuse in the public sector including:
- Computer fraud and the theft of intellectual property (personal data about taxpayers/customers, blueprints, proposals etc)
- Inappropriate images
- Bullying / harassment
- Internet / social media misuse
- Money laundering
- Accessing inappropriate sites on the internet
- Any non-conformance of policy
Examples of previous cases and the types of cases that Athena Forensics experts are regularly instructed are available on our previous investigations page. We also appreciate the need to ensure public money is spent wisely, we work closely with the public sector organisation to ensure all work is undertaken on a fixed-price basis so costs cannot escalate.
