Computer forensics is the investigation of computer media for facts that either refute or support the claims that our client is making in court. There is a lot more to computer forensics than just entering search terms and running a forensic software program across a device. Computer forensics is a discipline that requires both advanced investigation skills and certified professional computer knowledge.
Safeguarding Intellectual Property
Our certified computer forensic investigators are experienced with all facets of information technology investigations.
Intellectual property is an invaluable asset that many companies do not adequately protect. With 90% or more of information passing through one or more computers, and more than 70% never printed, when it comes to computer crime or many of the incidents that result in actions in the civil courts, the key evidence is likely to be digital in form. Companies have to understand how to preserve this evidence when an incident or lawsuit occurs.
eMail is the most permanent form of business communications. Once sent, eMail is nearly impossible to erase. For every message sent, multiple copies are automatically created and saved in locations over which companies have no control. The result - eMail archives have become a prime target in corporate litigation. eMail is one of the most popular methods of intellectual property theft.
We regularly conduct extensive computer forensic investigations, for clients ranging from small companies to fortune 100 corporations. In addition, we have worked with federal and state law enforcement, under the direction of a company's counsel, on a variety of matters.
We begin with a free 30 minute consultation session to ensure we provide the appropriate services to suit your needs and have no conflicts of interest.
Our Forensic Examiners will work with you to either ship your evidence, or we will come onsite to verify and collect the evidence.
While maintaining the proper chain of custody, we investigate your digital evidence to recover and analyze the information needed in your case.
We will generate a verbal or written report to document the findings of our forensic analysis as directed by you or your counsel.
