Computer Forensics

Posted 7 Aug, 2011

The security of your data can make all the difference between winning and losing your case.  If you suspect any of the following issues:

  • Workplace improprieties
  • Theft of intellectual property
  • Matters involving alleged criminal activity
  • Infidelity
  • Pending wrongful dismissal lawsuits

Then you need to protect yourself and your organization by performing these four critical steps to ensure that you have an untainted chain of evidence:

  1. DON’T – Turn off the computer if it is on.
  2. DO – Isolate the computer, disconnect it from the network and secure the physical area.
  3. DON’T – Allow your IT staff to search. Self – investigation WILL compromise or destroy evidence.
  4. DO – Call an experienced data forensics team immediately to determine the best course of action.
