Data Assessment & Identification

The first step in any case involving electronically stored information (ESI) is to understand and identify the location of all potentially relevant data. Data can be stored on local computer hard drives, network shares, USB media, in the cloud or a vast array of other locations. Identifying these locations at the onset ensures that all content is sufficiently collected and preserved. Following the identification of all potentially relevant ESI, our team will work to develop a strategic and cost conscious collection and analysis plan.

Forensic Collection & Preservation

One of the most critical components of any digital investigation is the forensic collection process. Depending on factors such as the type of device, volume of data and physical location, collection can be accomplished using both on-site and remote methods.

A forensic collection is a defensible process of capturing a bit-by-bit image of an entire computer hard drive or other digital media. A full disk image may often be advisable or even required to ensure that all data is captured (both active and deleted). Some cases where a forensic, full disk image may be necessary would include:

Furthermore, a good forensic collection does not always mean a full disk image; rather the collection ensures the preservation of all original metadata.
