Computer forensics is the application of computer investigation and analysis techniques in the interests of determining potential legal evidence. Evidence might be sought in a wide range of computer crime or misuse, including but not limited to theft of trade secrets, theft of or destruction of intellectual property, and fraud. Computer specialists can draw on an array of methods for discovering data that resides in a computer system, or recovering deleted, encrypted, or damaged file information. Any or all of this information may help during discovery, depositions, or actual litigation.
The Investigators, LLC's computer forensics investigators take several careful steps to identify and attempt to retrieve possible evidence that may exist on a subject computer system:
Protects the subject computer system during the forensic examination from any possible alteration, damage, data corruption, or virus introduction;
Discovers all files on the subject system. This includes existing normal files, deleted yet remaining files, hidden files, password- protected files, and encrypted files;
Recovers all (or as much as possible) of discovered deleted files;
Reveals (to the extent possible) the contents of hidden files as well as temporary or swap files used by both the application programs and the operating system;
Accesses (if possible and if legally appropriate) the contents of protected or encrypted files;
Analyzes all possibly relevant data found in special (and typically inaccessible) areas of a disk. This includes but is not limited to what is called 'unallocated' space on a disk (currently unused, but possibly the repository of previous data that is relevant evidence), as well as 'slack' space in a file (the remnant area at the end of a file, in the last assigned disk cluster, that is unused by current file data, but once again may be a possible site for previously created and relevant evidence);
Prints out an overall analysis of the subject computer system, as well as a listing of all possibly relevant files and discovered file data. Further, provides an opinion of the system layout, the file structures discovered, any discovered data and authorship information, any attempts to hide, delete, protect, encrypt information, and anything else that has been discovered and appears to be relevant to the overall computer system examination;
Provides expert consultation and/or testimony, as required;
Hawaii Cellular Phone Forensics
The Forensic Investigators are trained and experienced Technicians who use specialized methods of analyzing, recovering and validating electronic data. They are trained on the preservation, acquisition, examination, analysis, and reporting of digital evidence on cell phones, relevant to law enforcement, incident response, infidelity and other types of investigations.
The Digital Cellular Phone Forensics field is a constant challenge for investigators and technicians. They constantly stay abreast of the latest technologies that may be used to expose relevant clues in an investigation.
Mobile phones are in abundant use in today’s society. Used by many individuals for both personal and professional purposes. Most modern phones have cameras built-in, they also have the ability to record video, and to record voice and sound recordings as well as text messages. These fundamental tools are readily available and used by people all over the world for the right reasons. Some, however, are being used for inappropriate use. Our Forensic Investigators or Technicians specifically help organizations, governments, corporations, police forces, military and individuals who have been victims from malicious usage of these devices.
Mobile phone forensics is the science of recovering digital evidence from a mobile phone under forensically sound conditions using accepted methods. The data is extracted in a strictly ‘read only’ process, without modifying data on the source phone. The extracted data is verified using industry standard of hash algorithm to insure data integrity for the courtroom.
Our Investigators/Technicians may extract a wide variety of data types from a cellular phone. Such as:
(Received, Dialed, Missed calls)
Deleted Text Messages
Pictures and Images
(IMEI / ESN, phone number)
QCP File System Dump
SIM ID Cloning
Hawaii Computer Forensics and Electronic Evidence Discovery are crucial elements of nearly all litigation. If you are party to litigation, identifying, retrieving, analyzing and reviewing data from your computer systems, as well as those of the opposing party, requires a deep understanding of computer technology, as well as the letter of the law.
The Investigators, LLC integrates knowledge of the litigation process with powerful computer forensics. We help you navigate the complexities and uncertainties that arise in every step of the litigation process, starting from initial assessment through expert courtroom testimony. We can guide you through any or all steps of the discovery process, including:
Development of an overall electronic discovery strategy.
Construction of and response to interrogatories.
Keyword and other searches.
Consolidation and distillation of redundant data.
Review of data for relevancy, responsiveness and privilege.
Production of documents and other data.
