Computer Forensics Services

Computer forensics help law enforcement and attorneys answer crucial questions in criminal and civil courts. Our team leaves no stone unturned to provide those answers.

What is Computer Forensics?

Computer forensics services are commonly employed by law enforcement and legal professionals hoping to gain a deeper understanding of the activities, psychology, and motivations of an individual by analyzing the data stored on a computer(s).

Using the same principles pioneered in other forensic sciences, our digital forensics examiners analyze digital artifacts (pictures, documents, emails, web browser history, etc.) stored within a desktop or laptop computer. These digital artifacts can have a profound impact on the outcome of criminal and civil litigation, either on their own, or when coupled with other pieces of evidence gathered during an investigation.

Reasons for a Computer Forensics Investigation

Whether a computer has been physically damaged, logically corrupted, or maliciously attacked, Gillware’s recovery engineers and forensic investigators collaborate to put Humpty Dumpty back together while helping you understand why–and how–he fell off the wall in the first place.

Employee Data Theft and Exfiltration

When employees leave a company and take data with them, it can cause huge problems for a company looking to protect trade secrets and intellectual property. Whether the ex-employee intends to use the information to form their own competing entity, or to provide the data to an existing competitor, cases of industrial espionage and data exfiltration are both common occurrences where computer forensic services can be employed.

Criminal Investigations

Computer crimes such as fraud, forgery or identity theft leave a trail of evidence that we can uncover. Even crimes conducted outside of the digital world, including drug investigations or homicides, can be assisted by forensic analysis of a suspect’s computer to find a variety of information relevant to the case.

Regulatory Compliance and Employee Exit

Regulations often govern the retention policies of important data, especially in the healthcare and financial industries. Data stored on employees’ computers can contain sensitive information and require secure archiving after an employee is no longer using a device. For this reason, we investigate employee devices as part of an employee’s exit process to identify any data deletion, exfiltration, or wrongdoing during his or her tenure.

Human Resources or Employment Disputes

If an employee is accused of misconduct via email or Internet use, we investigate to assess the full scope of the incident. Since computers are used for every facet of day-to-day business, it’s likely the employee’s computer was involved in any suspected wrongdoing.

Other cases that require computer forensics involve disgruntled employees intentionally deleting data or sabotaging systems or equipment. We can retrieve maliciously deleted data and trace the employee’s activity of the employee for any necessary legal recourse.
