Deloitte's forensic technology practice combines the investigative experience of its forensic team with technologically advanced computer hardware and software to offer effective and accurate solutions to our clients' complex legal problems and specific needs, including cross-border cases.
Forensic technology is an essential component of almost every financial investigation and of all computer related investigations. People practicing in today's digital environment must understand the various ways information can be stored and retrieved in order to build the best possible case and to ensure compliance with discovery and local laws and regulations.
Using the array of technology featured in our worldwide network of computer forensics labs, our professionals can recover a wealth of information from computer hard drives and many other media types, including active, deleted, hidden, lost or low-encrypted files, file fragments and even files that were merely viewed but never saved (memory forensics). Optimising our services for Luxembourg area, we divide our forensic technology services into three main categories:
Technology support for forensic investigations
Using cutting-edge software and best-of-breeds open-source tools, we can provide our clients many forensic possibilities, using disk imaging methods (complete and total copy of data), combined, when needed, with passwords analysis and cracking:
- Low-level search (keywords and/or heuristic methodologies) on hard drives and networks
- Asset tracing
- Unauthorised access and/or industrial espionage investigation
- Misuse of the internet and/or misuse of corporate data and email accounts
- Sensitive data and email recovery
Any incident that needs computer investigation may result in legal action, which means that the information collection process and the storage of evidences must be structured and lawful. Computer information can be very hard to handle and process due to its volatility.
Our forensic professionals can help to control the entire process that goes from evidence collection to support for possible legal actions (collection, storage, legal case preparation, presentation and support for legal actions).
Data mining and intelligence
Integrity of data is a key issue for all businesses. In order to identify fraud risks and abuse of corporate financial assets, our team is equipped with the knowledge and experience to assess the accuracy and integrity of systems data quickly and cost effectively using sophisticated data interrogation and analysis, statistical sampling, and regression techniques.
