Digital Forensic Investigations

Harbinger’s Protegga Digital Forensic Investigations (a.k.a. computer forensics) collect, preserve, discover, analyze, and presents Electronically Stored Information (ESI) found on digital devices and the cloud. Digital forensic experts draw upon a variety of methods for discovering, analyzing, and scientifically verifying information that resides on computer systems (desktop, laptop, MacBook, mail servers, file servers), mobile phones (iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile, Blackberry), GPS (Garmin, TomTom, Magellan), cloud computing environments, network storage devices, social media, other digital devices (iPod, iPad, NetBook, Tablet, MP3), and more.

What is key to making sure your data is admissible in court or other legal proceedings? The strict controls and procedures digital forensic experts use to ensure all existing data is found and the original data is preserved and unchanged. Digital forensic investigations require an in-depth understanding of operating systems, databases, networks, the Internet, applications, and how and when data is written to storage devices.

When you’re facing a case that requires production of ESI, you want a digital forensic expert working with you. Why? A true expert would have a more comprehensive understanding of where all the data can reside in any environment. Additionally, digital forensic experts can ensure all the information provided throughout the eDiscovery process is accurate and complete or perform a digital forensic investigation when eDiscovery falls short of reasonable expectations.

Protegga works closely with you to during a digital forensic investigation to define a list of devices required based upon the specific needs of the case.
