Digital Forensics

Increasingly, evidence of wrongdoing perpetrated against organisations will be found on digital devices. This may occur through the actions of sophisticated cybercriminals or ordinary employees. Defensibly preserving and analysing the evidence required to support cases is becoming progressively more complex as the divisions between the corporate estate, the cloud and personal domain become increasingly blurred.

With our team of specialists, clients will benefit from rapid investigation of issues and crises allowing them to find answers and take action.

We offer data collection services across a wide range of digital assets and cloud data sources. We use industry-leading forensic software and hardware to acquire data rapidly and maintain the integrity of metadata and data content. Our methodologies and chain-of-custody documentation are designed to meet requirements for courtroom acceptance.

All digital evidence is handled in line with industry best practices in our purpose built secure Digital Forensic lab with biometric access control.

  • Cloud-based repositories
