How do I instruct Athena Forensics?
The initial response to any such incident is crucial, in cases of this nature, it is vital that a trained digital forensic expert is consulted immediately.
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 a digital forensic examination.
