Forensic investigations of hard drives, servers, removable media and tape backups.

Computer forensics is a branch of digital forensic science. This pertains to legal evidence found in computers and digital storage media. The goal of computer forensics is to examine digital media in a forensically sound manner with the aim of recovering, linking and understanding information.

It is most often associated with the investigation of a wide variety of computer crime. However, computer evidence may also be used in civil proceedings. The discipline involves similar techniques and principles to data recovery, but with additional guidelines and practices designed to create a legal audit trail. Computer Forensics Specialists have become a vital asset in providing evidence in cases such as computer misuse and attacks against computer systems. We are also used to trace lines of communication in traditional claims. This includes the forensic analysis and reporting of all digital media, regardless of the physical condition of the media, format or operating system.

Forensic computing examinations by our computer experts are in an understandable computer forensic analysis report, which details all our findings. As with the examination of any evidence, a well-documented chain of custody is essential. Our forensic analysis include notes taken by the examiner, details of the hardware examined, the procedures and software used in the examination and any evidence found. Our computer forensics reports are simple to understand and comply with the Civil Procedure Rules for Electronic Evidence and the Association of Chief Police Officers guidelines.
