Process: Our specialized service begins with collecting digital devices involved in the incident. A chain of custody is established to maintain the integrity of evidence. The devices are then cloned to create exact copies, allowing us to conduct exhaustive investigations without compromising the original data. We utilize advanced forensic tools to examine file structures, metadata, and even deleted files to ascertain how a breach occurred, who may be responsible, and what information was compromised. A detailed report is provided once the investigation is complete, including recommendations for future security enhancements.
After a data breach compromised customer information, digital forensics analysis helped identify the type of malware used and the point of entry, leading to the offender’s identification.
In a case of suspected insider trading, a forensic analysis of an executive’s laptop revealed deleted emails and files that were then used as evidence in legal proceedings.
Risks for Not Doing It: Neglecting to conduct a digital forensics analysis post-incident leaves your organization vulnerable to ongoing attacks, as you remain uninformed about how the initial breach occurred. This ignorance hampers your ability to close security loopholes, leaving sensitive data perpetually at risk. It also compromises your legal standing as you can’t provide conclusive evidence in any ensuing legal or compliance-related matters. Failing to analyze and understand the nature of the attack may result in repeated incidents, leading to financial losses, reputation damage, and even potential legal consequences. Therefore, the absence of digital forensics analysis can have severe, long-lasting repercussions on an organization’s overall security posture.
