Computer Forensics

If the information is anywhere to be found, we will find it to help you win your case.

 

The term “forensics” refers to the use of technical and legal tools to gather and protect objective electronic evidence for use in court. In today’s digital world, such evidence can be found on computers, cell phones, PDAs and a whole host of other electronic communication and storage devices.

It is imperative that this information is collected correctly and in its entirety if it is to be defensible in a court of law. If the evidence is not properly collected, you risk not being able to present your case fully and completely.

Additionally, court sanctions can be imposed if the court feels that the collection was done in an improper manner. A proper forensic collection therefore, is perhaps the most important part of the e-discovery process.

Here at SALIX, our team of collection specialists are well-versed in the forensics arena.We employ the latest tools and methodologies in our collections and we are fully equipped to collect and preserve any and all types of electronically stored information. Our chain of custody forms are rigorously maintained throughout the entire collection process, thereby eliminating any possibility of compromised data.
