Why Digital Forensics?

You've spent the time and money to lay out your case in front of the judge. You've gone through hundreds of gigabytes of data, ready to present your case in a picturesque format before the judge. When the time comes to present your data to the court, the judge glances at it to hand it back to you - the data has been altered, providing time stamps as of the collection date, not when evidence has been made. All the more so, the data is incomplete - filled with links in an Excel file. The tool you used was subpar, leading to a spoilage of data.

The reality is all too real for some attorneys. If a judge finds the data has been tampered with, it can damage your credibility and the integrity of other evidence presented. Now, you're headed back, looking for other ways to collect the data in an admissible format. Look for a forensic data expert in North Forensics.

Why Digital Forensics?

Forensic data have become the crux of presenting digital information. Here's why:

  • Providing Objective Evidence: Digital evidence is often objective and can provide a clear record of events. This evidence can support legal arguments and help establish the facts of a case.

  • Preserving the Integrity of Evidence: Forensic experts follow strict protocols to ensure that evidence is collected and preserved without alteration. This helps maintain the integrity and credibility of the data.

  • Uncovering Hidden Information: Forensic analysis can reveal deleted files, hidden data, or fragmented information that may be critical to a case.

  • Establishing Timelines and Patterns: Analyzing digital evidence can help establish timelines of events, identify communication patterns, and uncover connections between parties.

The Admissibility in Court.

Forensic collections are only valuable if the information collected is admissible in court - to ensure admissibility, North follows rigorous standards and best practices.
