Accurate forensic investigation is vitally important for solving crimes and unravelling the course of events. The controlled collection and testing of suitable forensic samples can help to prove an activity, inactivity or occurrence and is of great help to organisations and individuals needing to uncover the truth of a specific situation.


Who Might Need Forensic Investigations?

Forensic investigations may be necessary when you suspect digital crimes like hacking, fraud, or IP theft have occurred. They provide digital evidence and technical insights when:

> Unauthorised access to devices, accounts or systems is discovered

> Sensitive data is leaked or stolen

> Counterfeit products using stolen IP enter the market

> Anonymous threats are received demanding ransomware payments

> Fake social media profiles, sites or emails damage reputations

Our computer forensics services help identify perpetrators, quantify damages, and support legal action. We provide evidence for HR issues, police investigations, civil lawsuits, insurance claims, and more.

Corporations, legal teams, private individuals, law enforcement and more turn to our technical specialists when they suspect cybercrimes but lack the expertise to investigate digitally. Our forensic analysis provides definitive proof of what happened.


How Do Forensic Investigations Work?

Our expert cyber investigators utilise court-admissible forensic techniques to gather irrefutable evidence from computers, mobile devices, networks, cloud accounts and more. We specialise in:

> Device, Media and Network Forensics: Extracting activity logs, files, communications and other critical digital evidence.

> Mobile Phone Forensics: Cracking locked devices to uncover call logs, messages, app activity, location history and media.

> Computer Forensics: Recovering deleted emails, files, internet history, user activity logs and cached content.

> Open Source Investigations: Scouring the internet and dark web for stolen data leaks, fake sites/accounts, hacker chatter.

> Cloud Forensics: Accessing compromised cloud accounts like email, storage and even SaaS apps to understand what occurred.

Our technical experts crack passwords, bypass locks, reconstruct activity timelines, trace hackers, authenticate evidence, and quantify damages. We uncover the digital breadcrumbs perpetrators leave behind.
