WHAT IS COMPUTER FORENSICS?
With the explosion of computer and internet related crimes leaving trails of digital evidence, there is a growing need to increase forensic capabilities. At HD Forensics whether the crime involves drugs, violence, fraud, child pornography or even acts of terrorism, following the electronic trail is a critical component of putting the pieces of the puzzle together.
Although recovering digital evidence is a critical part of even the most routine police investigation, on the increase is the corporate organisation that is utilising computer forensics, investigating incidents such as inappropriate computer use, inappropriate email use, unauthorised data duplication and disloyal employees. Human Resource departments and Internal Security are the biggest users of these specialist corporate services.
The services we can offer are flexible depending on the clients needs, starting with a preview of the drive we can determine which information is available for recovery, this will then determine if a full recovery is required. A full recovery will search, recover and analyse all files on the drive ready to be used in the case at hand. At a very basic level HD Forenics can create an image of the drive, maintaining the drives integrity and allowing the drive to be returned.

We have a proven track record of running a Trojan Defence where applicable. We appreciate how easily information and images can be downloaded with or without the users knowledge.
