Digital Recovery for Evidence

Computer forensics can be defined as the collection, preservation, analysis, and if needed, the court presentation of computer-related evidence. Why do we need computer forensics? Because a vast amount of information can be found in computers. Even if a file has been deleted we may be able to recover it. Also, in today’s technologically advanced society, computers and other storage devices such as PDA’s and mobile phones are fast becoming the preferred medium for storing information. Our computer forensics specialists use state-of-the-art tools and procedures to confidentially recover, safeguard, analyze, and present data extracted from various computer storage devices. This enables us to identify individuals, motives, and their methods.

With the majority of the world’s business documents being drafted on computers and the use of e-mail, instant messaging and internet business by nearly everyone, much of today’s civil litigation evidence can be derived from computers. Custer Agency’s computer forensic investigation team with the ability to locate and recover any and all relevant information or traces of same that may exist on a computer or storage device. This includes recovering items such as e-mails viewed but not “saved”, websites visited, deleted documents, uninstalled software, etc. The great news about this type of data is that unlike a piece of paper which only shows us what we can see, electronic data can have information about it’s creation, multiple versions of that information, who it was transmitted to, history of it’s use, etc. We are proud to say that if a piece of information exists on a computer or storage device, we will be able to locate it and produce it for inclusion in evidence.
