The shift away from paper files and the increased reliance on computers and other electronic devices to enhance efficiency has created new challenges for companies as they safeguard intellectual property, investigate fraud within their organizations, and protect their reputations from external threats.
Utilizing state-of-the-art techniques, Kroll’s computer forensics specialists enable the recovery and use of critical electronic evidence for litigation, investigations and other fact-finding exercises. We establish whether evidence has been erased or modified; analyze electronic content and patterns of Internet and e-mail usage; recover deleted data; and assess and explain metadata within recovered files.
We often can recover information from hard drives, even if a subject sought to destroy it. Kroll conducts its analysis in a sound forensic manner so that clients can use our findings to track web-based thefts of intellectual property, counterfeiting of goods or to unmask competitors or disgruntled employees engaged in anonymous defamation over the Internet.
Our teams are expert in maintaining the forensic integrity of evidence, improving its admissibility. We are experienced in testifying to the results of our forensic analysis in-court or by affidavit. We are also frequently called upon to act as third-party administrators, in which the parties to a dispute agree that only one examination of the data will be undertaken.
