Securing Digital Data as legally valid Evidence
Computer Forensics supports legal practices and companies in investigating white-collar crimes. Our IT investigators identify and analyse electronic evidence. The investigation includes devices such as PC, mobile data storage devices such as laptops, USB sticks, smartphones, and tablets. In addition to the aforementioned devices, company servers save information that could serve as crucial legal evidence in the course of a corporate investigation. In particular data such as email correspondence, browser and chat histories, search histories, meta-data, and protocols can provide vital evidence. However, our IT experts are not only able to work with active data but are able to restore deleted data as well.
