Digital Forensics at Investigators Australia
Digital forensics is the classification that covers the application of scientific methods and knowledge to analyse digital evidence in legal matters. During an investigation whether criminal or civil, evidence is collected from crime scenes, people, documents, and places of interests for analysis. The evidence is then sent to a forensic laboratory or investigation firm such as Investigators Australia for analysis. Forensic experts are often required to perform tasks that can go beyond evidence gathering and reporting. A court may require experts to engage in opposing sides to meet and reach an agreement in a dispute.
Investigators Australia provides digital forensic services to individuals, lawyers, government officials, and businesses. Our digital forensic experts are essential to our team of investigators for instances related to cybercrime, data breaches, or misconduct by an employee. If you need computer, phone, online, or other forms of digital evidence for court, or simply for your own peace of mind, Investigators Australia can help. Our digital forensic technicians are accredited experts who can help you with all your digital forensic needs.
What are Digital Forensics?
The internet and modern communication networks are still in a state of development. Therefore, police and lawyers rarely have the expertise needed to solve digital problems in an efficient and timely manner. A computer forensic expert is the only person who is qualified to examine hard drives, mobile phones, or other online data, to prepare a report on the data found in a format that can be used in court. Even if your issues aren’t going to court, we can help you find the truth you are looking for, no matter what the issue may be.
There are various fields of digital forensics that experts use to gather information. These fields can be used individually or together to piece together information for a case. Some of these fields most used by investigators include:
- Computer Forensics
Computer forensic technicians are licensed experts who can help you. The internet is a great tool that has become essential to our daily lives. It allows us to stay in touch with friends, conducting business, locating goods and services, learning, and much more. However, despite all the positive benefits we have from the internet, it can become a source for fraudsters and organised crime that can operate undetected by the average internet user. Investigators Australia has a vast amount of experience in dealing with issues of cyber-crime. We have a large forensics team that deals with issues of data recovery, discovery and retrieval. We do not outsource your data and intellectual property to third parties so you know you can trust us with even your most delicate information.
- Mobile Device Forensics
Our digital forensics team can help you with any mobile device investigations. We examine phones, tablets, or other mobile devices to uncover any data necessary for a court hearing, or to help you find the peace of mind you are looking for. Our experts can uncover or detect items such as deleted data, photos, emails, videos, audio, internet history, spyware, malware, social media data, location history and much more. Evidence such as this may be relevant in family law disputes, to prove one’s guilt or innocence, to disprove any allegations made in a civil dispute, or improper phone use by an employee that could result in the loss of business data.
- Spyware and Hacking detection
The interception of phone conversations, text messages, and emails is a serious issue. Beware as some investigators are offering these services which are not licensed to handle these issues. This is why Investigators Australia has a team of digital forensic specialists that are licensed and experts in using the latest techniques along with top of the line software programs to catch and stop fraudsters from stealing your information. Some spyware and hacking issues are easy to resolve. However, others can require a much higher level of expertise. No matter how large the issue, Investigators Australia has everything we need to trace the spyware and hacking devices to find the person behind the crime.
- Data Breach Investigations
There are hundreds of ways data can fall into the wrong hands. Investigators Australia has tons of experience paired with the best digital forensic specialists to help you stop the breach and protect your intellectual property. Data breaches come in many forms such as unauthorised access to information, hacking, and careless disposal of computers and other devices. Data breaches are much more common than you may expect and can affect your life and your business more than you may ever realise. Breaches can reveal financial information, personal identity, health records, business trade secrets, confidential information, and employee information. One of the most major concerns about a data breach is that the security of your information is no longer in your control. Data breaches can occur from careless mistakes and can be difficult to fix. That’s why you need someone who is an expert in all types of data breach situations to not only stop the attack but help you secure your information so it can’t be used to do you or your business any harm.
- Online Harassment Investigations
Unfortunately, victims of online harassment or cyber-stalking may not always get the help they need from the police. This is where private investigators and digital forensic experts come in. Investigators Australia can help victims manage their cases of internet stalking and abuse. If you are a victim of online harassment, don’t take any action without first contacting our team of investigators. Removing the content or blocking the stalker doesn’t solve the problem and can make it harder to handle your case. Our investigators use digital forensic techniques to uncover the culprits IP address and find out exactly who is behind the behaviour. Once we know where the attacks are coming from and the person is hiding, it can be much easier for police to take over and hold the person accountable.
- IP Address Identification
Investigators Australia uses IP Address Identification to trace emails, social media accounts, and more back to their source. Situations such as online threats, defamation, harassment, and spyware intrusions are extremely common making it much more common for users to find the person who is responsible for the offensive behaviour. If you are suffering from any of these attacks, we can help.
- Online Dating
Online dating has become a much more common way to meet new people and find romance. Which means it is also the most common scam on the internet. To avoid dating site scams it’s important to know exactly who you are talking too. Catfish, predators who fake their identity, are all over dating sites and are only out to hurt you.
