The job of our forensic experts is to help you identify criminals and analyze evidence against them.
We provide trained and skilled consultants with working experience for public law enforcement or in the private sector to carry out tasks related to the collection and analysis of digital evidence. They are also responsible for writing meaningful reports for use in investigative and legal settings. In addition to working in labs, our forensic experts apply digital investigative techniques in the field uncovering metadata that holds importance in a court of law.
With cybercrimes (i.e., any criminal act dealing with computers and networks) on the rise and threatening organizational data, as well as the increased use of digital devises by the general population, the analysis of digital evidence becomes a crucial element at many crime scenes.
Our experts use the comprehensive forensic software tools (such as Encase Forensic Edition, X-Ways Forensic Addition, Paraben, Forensic ToolKit (FTK), Linux DD, etc.) are used by crime scene investigators to provide their collection, indexing and detailed analysis.
Our digital forensic investigation commonly consists of 3 stages: acquisition or imaging of exhibits, analysis, and reporting. Ideally acquisition involves capturing an image of the computer’s volatile memory and creating an exact sector level duplicate of the media, often using a write blocking device to prevent modification of the original. However, the growth in size of storage media and developments such as cloud computing have led to more use of ‘live’ acquisitions whereby a ‘logical’ copy of the data is acquired rather than a complete image of the physical storage device. Both acquired image and original media/data are hashed (using an algorithm such as SHA-1 or MD5) and the values compared to verify the copy is accurate.
The evidence recovered is analysed to reconstruct events or actions and to reach conclusions. When an investigation is complete the data is presented, usually in the form of a written report, in lay persons’ terms.
