Piecing digital evidence together...
Employee computer misuse costs UK Businesses £3 billion per year.
Most businesses are well aware of the dangers of employee computer misuse, but few are aware that allowing in-house IT staff to investigate may render any evidence recovered inadmissible. At IntaForensics, all investigations follow the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) guidelines for computer-based evidence, which means any findings will be admissible in a court of law or employment tribunal.
IntaForensics are specialists in Computer Forensics – the analysis of computers and other electronic devices in order to produce legal evidence of a crime or unauthorised action. This might involve recovering deleted files, finding evidence of websites visited online, or determining whether a USB storage device was connected to a machine.
If there is a requirement to conduct the investigation covertly so as not to raise the suspicions of the suspected party, IntaForensics can attend a site after normal office hours to conduct the preliminary stages of a Computer Forensic investigation, performing the remaining investigation back at the laboratory and leaving the original computer in situ.
When the Forensic Analysis has been completed, a clear and concise report is produced, which can be used in any resulting disciplinary process or tribunal proceedings. If required, IntaForensics analysts are also able to give evidence in court, and are qualified to present evidence of opinion as well as evidence of fact.
