Our registered digital forensic experts conduct the investigation of the live and deleted areas of computers and mobile phones for companies, lawyers and private individuals throughout the UK.
Any digital investigation is completed thoroughly by our team and with clarity so that informed decisions can be made and, if necessary, those findings can be used in any future disciplinary, tribunal or legal proceedings.
A digital investigation would normally involve the search of data including:
- Online Internet Browsing activity including online email and banking use.
- User System Activity;
- Documents and files, including those hidden, encrypted or deleted;
- System generated files;
- Databases of User Activity;
- System Activity and Records;
- Emails and Messaging.
Our Computer and Mobile Phone Forensic Experts can examine the live and deleted areas of any computer or mobile phone for evidence of illegal activity, data theft, fraud, misuse in the workplace or company policy breaches including inappropriate Internet browsing or email activity.
Company internal IT departments, while extremely knowledgeable, are not normally trained in digital forensic techniques and may not have the relevant accreditation’s or expertise to carry out an investigation and examination and may actually cause the loss of important hidden or system data.
Computer Investigation – The Process
Initially we provide a free no-obligation consultation to assess the next steps and the examination requirements. Any information you provide will be dealt with in strict confidence.
The digital investigation process involves the preservation, interpretation and documentation of digital based evidence to determine what happened on that device, when, how and, if possible, the identity of the user responsible whilst causing no alteration to the data present.
Our Experts can conduct the investigation of live and deleted data on any digital device for any data present including documents, emails and Internet browsing activity to confirm or disprove an incident or breach of company policy.
Nearly all company information is held as data electronically and only a third of it is then stored in paper format. A company digital investigation requires detailed searches of data to be completed. Our digital forensic experts are able to uncover live and deleted data as well as data that is hidden within user created or system generated files and folders that may not be accessible to the normal user or IT department.
A digital investigation involves the identification, collection, analysis and formatting of large quantities of data that is presented in a format that is admissible in legal proceedings if required.
We use advanced forensic tools to allow detailed examinations to take place of a computer, server or mobile phone so that any data, whether it be visible, hidden or deleted can be included within any computer or mobile phone forensic examination.
