Data Recovery & Digital Forensics
Digital evidence is becoming more and more critical to all types of cases. Whatever the category or type – civil or criminal – computer technology is often involved. Today, lawyers, law enforcement professionals and other litigants must recognize the value of electronic evidence. The evidence and “paper” trail found within storage media can make or break a case.
Electronic Data Recovery
Electronic data recovery is the process of extracting files and other information, including hidden and deleted information, from devices such as computers, cell phones and other electronic devices that contain memory storage.
Electronic forensics is similar to electronic data recovery except the process includes creating an exact copy of the data to extract information without corrupting the original data. This is especially useful in regards to litigation and situations where the device is used as evidence.
From what media can data be recovered?
Data can be recovered from computers, cellphones, hard drives, CDs, DVD discs, compact flash cards, thumb drives, and many others.
What kind of data can be recovered?
We can recover images, e-mail, internet history, documents, profiles/My Documents directory, other targeted information and passwords.
What can a forensic investigation tell me?
We tailor the investigation to your needs, saving you both time and money. Investigations can uncover information about computer activity of various types and we can complete a full forensic exam or just an onsite audit of a single workstation.
What about physically damaged media?
If the media is damaged to the point where standard forensic procedures are unable to retrieve data, we do have the option of a "clean room" exam. Having a "clean room" exam can be more costly but it will greatly improve the chances of data recovery.
