We are not just computer experts. Because of our extensive investigative background in the physical world, we think and act like investigators. Our licensed PI’s perform investigations offering proper evidence handling and preservation. We service all manner of clientele from government agencies to law firms to private citizens. Let our unparalleled experience and qualifications go to work for you.
Our investigative approach to computer forensics is unlike many of the “computer experts” in North America. As licensed private investigators, we approach each computer forensic case as we would any other type of investigation. Forensic software is a vital part of this type of investigation, but it does not think. We apply our training and our investigative mind set to every computer forensic case. Our investigative advantage is very real and many of our clients throughout North America, as well as those they are opposing, are surprised at what our agents are able to find on a computer hard drive.
There are four very solid components that our forensic specialists possess. We have an absolute understanding of how all the parts of a computer work together to place the data on the screen. We completely grasp how a hard drive works and how, where, and why data is saved to a hard drive or deleted from a hard drive. The next component has to be a diverse arsenal of forensic software, hardware, and the intimate knowledge of how to use it. We have a variety of programs enabling us to determine which program is best suited in each unique situation. The third component is the investigative mindset. We have a solid investigative background making us more effective in this field. Our licensed private investigators have this type of training, experience, and expertise. The final and probably most important component is the ability to communicate. “If the client cannot understand the technicalities of what is going on, then our work product is useless.” We pride ourselves in being able to explain some of the most complex computer functions in easy-to-understand layman’s terms. We consult with our clients so we know as much about the case as we can, saving you time, and completing the investigation as soon as possible.
We have assisted Canadian, US and International businesses and attorneys in many types of computer forensics cases including, but not limited to, the following: Data theft, software infringement, fraud, breach of contract, embezzlement, trademark infringement, copyright infringement, conspiracy, possession of child pornography, trade secret misappropriation, data misappropriation, stalking, asset locating, wrongful termination, age discrimination, and sexual harassment.
Please feel free to contact our office to discuss your needs. Fees associated with our computer forensic investigations begin at approximately $3,500.00 for hard drives.
