FORENSIC IMAGING / REMOTE SERVICES
Forensic Imaging or Forensic Acquisition is the process where the entire drive contents are imaged to a file and checksum values are calculated to verify the integrity (in court cases) of the image file (often referred to as a “hash value”). Forensic images are acquired with the use of software and/or hardware forensic tools. We offer Remote Forensic Imaging for ALL operating systems. This means that if you cannot come to our office, we can come to you, collect the data, then pick-up that data and ship to our labs. We offer FREE shipping while maintaining strict Chain of Custody protocols. More Info here…
COMPUTER FORENSICS ANALYSIS
The goal of computer forensics is to explain the current state of a digital artifact; such as a computer system, storage medium or electronic document. The discipline usually covers computers, embedded systems (digital devices with rudimentary computing power and on-board memory) and static memory (such as USB pen drives). Computer forensics can deal with a broad range of information; from logs (such as internet history) through to the actual files on the drive.
DIGITAL FORENSICS ANALYSIS
Digital forensics (sometimes known as digital forensic science) is a branch of forensic science encompassing the recovery and investigation of material found in digital devices, often in relation to computer crime. The term digital forensics was originally used as a synonym for computer forensics but has expanded to cover investigation of all devices capable of storing digital data.
DATABASE FORENSICS ANALYSIS
Database forensics is a branch of digital forensics relating to the forensic study of databases and their metadata. Investigations use database contents, log files and in-RAM data to build a time-line or recover relevant information.
iPHONE, CELL PHONE, SMART PHONE FORENSICS (MOBILE)
Mobile device forensics is a sub-branch of digital forensics relating to recovery of digital evidence or data from a mobile device. It differs from Computer forensics in that a mobile device will have an inbuilt communication system (e.g. GSM) and, usually, proprietary storage mechanisms. Investigations usually focus on simple data such as call data and communications (SMS/Email). However mobile devices are also useful for providing location information; either from inbuilt gps/location tracking or via cell site logs, which track the devices within their range.
NETWORK FORENSICS ANALYSIS / INTERNET
Network forensics is concerned with the monitoring and analysis of computer network traffic, both local and WAN/internet, for the purposes of information gathering, evidence collection, or intrusion detection. Traffic is usually intercepted at the packet level, and either stored for later analysis or filtered in real-time. Unlike other areas of digital forensics network data is often volatile and rarely logged, making the discipline often reactionary.
EXPERT WITNESS SERVICE
An expert witness, professional witness or judicial expert is a witness, who by virtue of education, training, skill, or experience, is believed to have expertise and specialized knowledge in a particular subject beyond that of the average person, sufficient that others may officially and legally rely upon the witness’s specialized (scientific, technical or other) opinion about an evidence or fact issue within the scope of his expertise, referred to as the expert opinion, as an assistance to the fact-finder. Expert witnesses may also deliver expert evidence about facts from the domain of their expertise.
iPAD’S, iPOD’S, iPHONE’S, MAC FORENSICS ANALYSIS
The Mac OS’ Hierarchical File System stores codes for creator and type as part of the directory entry for each file. These codes are referred to as OSTypes. These codes could be any 4-byte sequence, but were often selected so that the ASCII representation formed a sequence of meaningful characters, such as an abbreviation of the application’s name or the developer’s initials. Today, this file system is found on very popular media types. We provide Digital Forensic Services for all devices made by APPLE.
FORENSIC DATA RECOVERY
(FOR DAMAGED DRIVES, CD/DVD, SURVEILLANCE VIDEO)
Data Recovery Imaging (like Forensic Imaging) is the process of imaging every single sector on the source drive to another medium from which required files can be retrieved then forensically imaged. In data recovery situations, one cannot rely on the integrity of the file structure and therefore a complete sector copy is mandatory (also similar to forensic imaging).
