There has been a significant rise in the amount of computer and internet related crime in recent years. This is hardly surprising as we increasingly rely on computers and the internet to carry out transactions and store and exchange information. The very nature of computers means that whatever you do leaves a trail of evidence, but in order to be used in court this needs to be gathered and handled in such a way that it isn’t compromised. This is where digital forensicscomes into play.
Though the gathering of digital evidence now plays a key part in the investigation of many crimes, it’s also used by a growing number of businesses. The skills of a computer investigator can be useful in uncovering misuse of company computers or email, or the copying and leaking of data from within an organisation. Our services can of course be adapted to meet the specific needs of the client.
