 Intro to Computer Forensics

Computer Forensics is the science of identifying, recovering, extracting, preserving, and documenting ESI (Electronically Stored Information) so that it can be presented as evidence in a court of law.1 Law enforcement and military agencies have employed computer forensics for decades, and recent technological developments enable qualified private sector businesses to deploy computer forensics for the benefit of their clients.  


Not sure if you need a forensic investigator? If, for any part of your case, you need access to information that may or may not have been stored on a computer then, Yes. You need a forensic investigator. A skilled investigator can view and analyze potential evidence that was "deleted" or never intentionally "saved", and document the source and veracity for use in cases of:

  • Copyright infringement
  • Sexual harassment
  • Theft of intellectual property
  • Corruption
  • Fraud
  • Illegal duplication of software
  • Unauthorized use of a computer
  • Child pornography2

Before you decide to conduct your own computer forensics, consider that even if you are computer savvy, and even if you manage (against the odds) to find some potential evidence, it may not meet the courtroom standards of admissible evidence. Only a trained and qualified computer forensics investigator can ensure that the methods and technology used to obtain evidence from a computer are admissible in court. Note to would-be Do-it-Yourself-ers: Why waste a lot of time and money only to end up empty handed, or worse, compromise potential evidence by using unauthorized methods of data extraction, retrieval or storage? Is that really what is best for your case?

Intro to Cell Phone Data Recovery     

Most people carry a cell phone because they want to be "in touch" with their family, friends, business associates, and learn the news of the day. Cell phones are a convenient way to stay connected. So convenient, in fact, that cell phones and other mobile devices are eclipsing laptops as the preferred connection tool between employees and their organizations. For a professional investigator, the 3.2 billion mobile devices in use in the U.S. today1 are more than a way to reach out and be reachable; they are also valuable sources of information and potential evidence.


Suppose one of your top employees recently put in their two weeks notice. You assume she or he is spending their last two weeks in your employment as you directed - wrapping up open projects, transitioning incoming work to another employee, and maybe helping to train their replacement. But what if they're actually mining company databases for clients they want to take with them, or emailing electronic files of sensitive information? Or suppose your spouse begins working late or suddenly has to leave town for business? Are you being paranoid and insecure, or do you have reason to question their fidelity? A professional forensic investigator can help you find out.

A qualified forensic investigator knows what kind of information is available, how to find it, retrieve it, and store it, all the while protecting the integrity of the data so that it is admissible in court. Make no mistake; this is not a job for an amateur. An error at any point can make the data inadmissible in court. Also,
