Forensic acquisition and laboratory investigations
Just as crime scene investigators carefully gather physical evidence, forensics acquisition professionals methodically, safely, and securely acquire electronic evidence in a manner that preserves the data and maintains the chain of custody.Our forensic service obeys the highest standards of secure storage and evidence handling. Using current, best of breed technologies, our laboratory facilities allow for most types of digital media to be forensically examined and evidential data recovered. All material is handled and documented in accordance with the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) guidelines relating to digital evidence.
The forensics lab is able to process most types of common media; from server and RAID forensic images to the smallest removable piece of smart media used in devices like smart phones, digital cameras, PDA`s and GPS systems.
The lab is equipped with highly efficient and secure hardware based forensic imaging tools that provide integrity of the forensic images and drastically cut down the time to image over traditional software based imaging methods.
Benefits of forensic acquisition and laboratory investigations
In the event of a breach, theft, or inappropriate behaviour, it is absolutely crucial that electronic evidence be preserved. Electronic evidence contains the information needed to understand three things:
- How the events happened.
- How to mitigate the cause of the events.
- What data or resources may have been affected by the breach or theft.
It is essential that electronic evidence be acquired in a methodical, safe, and secure manner, and preserved in a manner that is admissible in a court of law.
