Digital forensics is becoming a big part of modern investigations.
We still spend time finding people, tracking down leads the old-fashioned way and working in the physical world to observe what happens, but we’re also very active in digital forensics and in combing through digital data to help our clients with discovery.
If you’re struggling trying to figure out how to recover lost or stolen data, call us. We’ll help you understand how digital forensics works, and what it can do for your case.
Evidence of a Crime
It’s relatively easy to wipe active data off of a hard disk drive or some other device. But in many cases, that data is still there – it’s not lost, it’s just dormant.
Digital forensics brings high-tech methods to data recovery, and in most cases, we can recover the lost data in question. With many physical hard drives, the only way to really effectively erase these drives is with a drill or set of magnets.
Otherwise, expert digital forensics personnel can extract data that seems to be locked in or erased from a device.
The Ransomware Threat
Ransomware is a new kind of hacking, and a very scary form of cyberattack that has lots of customers worried.
Hackers come in from outside of the system and effectively delete or lock down files.
Digital forensics can’t always fix a ransomware crime – but in some cases, there may be ways to work around this type of data theft. Ransomware can also be an instructive way to think about digital data forensic in the context of an investigation.
