Computer Forensic Services

Data Storage Specialists provide electronic and paper-based disclosure, computer forensics, courtroom services and data recovery solutions to help companies, law firms and government agencies quickly and cost-effectively assess, review, manage and produce relevant evidence.

Expert computer forensic analysis can give one that all important edge in investigations. Our experienced computer forensic engineers can examine and piece together the who, what, when, where, how and why of computer-related conduct. Data Storage Specialists experts work in numerous different disciplines, such as forensic accountancy, computer crime, compliance, penetration testing, fraud and investigations. With our significant experience and expertise, our computer forensic engineers play a significant role.

Computer Forensics is a highly specialist area. It should only be undertaken by experts who have a comprehensive understanding of the legal system, ACPO (Association of Chief Police Officers) Guidelines, Masters Degree (or equivalent) in Computer Forensics and full knowledge of Evidence Handling and ISO27001.

Our forensic computer technicians are able to analyse both active and deleted data, system generated information, such as log files and registry entries on electronic systems to roll back time and paint a coherent picture of what the system was used for yesterday, last week, last month or last year. We also offer a 'Quick Analysis' plan, as part of our computer forensics specialist services, which helps clients decide whether a full computer forensic investigation is warranted based on initial examination.
