Computer Forensics

Computer forensics involves the acquisition, preservation, analysis, and presentation of computer evidence. This type of evidence is fragile and can easily, even inadvertently, be altered, destroyed, or rendered inadmissible as evidence. Computer evidence must be properly obtained, preserved, and analyzed to be accepted as reliable and valid in a court of law.

To preserve the integrity of case evidence, forensic investigators do not work on the original files themselves. Instead, they create an exact replica of the files and work on this image to ensure that the original files remain intact.

To verify the files they are working on have not been altered, investigators can compare a hash of the original files at the time they were seized with a hash of the imaged files used in the investigation. Hashing provides mathematical validation that a forensic image exactly matches the contents of the original computer.

Another important legal element in computer forensics is the continuity, or chain of custody, of computer evidence. The chain of custody deals with who has supervised, acquired, analyzed, and controlled the evidence. Forensic investigators must be able to account for all that has happened to the evidence between its point of acquisition or seizure and its eventual appearance in court.

There are many cases in which personnel trained in information technology have made incriminating computer evidence legally inadmissible because of their reckless or ill-conceived examinations. Only properly trained computer forensics specialists should obtain and examine computer evidence.

We provide complete forensic services. These include: electronic discovery consultation; onsite seizure of the evidence; thorough processing of the evidence; interpretation of the results; reporting the results in an understandable manner.
