Computer forensics is the science of investigating legal evidence stored in computers and digital storage media. Our experts can intelligently identify digital sources of evidence and collect or image the data for preservation, analysis and presentation.

All evidence must be forensically captured, and all data relevant to the investigation analysed, in accordance with the Association of Chief Police Officers’ (ACPO) guidelines. This ensures that any evidence is defensible in court and requires a complete understanding of all areas in which evidence is likely to be stored. Not every case is a criminal matter, but at PLT every forensic collection and investigation is conducted to a criminal investigative standard, even if the requirement is in response to civil litigation. This ensures complete defensibility.

Every document created and any activity conducted with a computer leaves a trail of evidence.  For example, deleting a computer file does not necessarily mean that all traces of it are removed forever. Often the deleted data remains on the internal memory storage of the computer and, with the right skills and tools, can be recovered and provided for review at a later date.
