Evidence Acquisition

Digital evidence is collected from many sources including: computers, cell phones, PDAs, digital cameras, hard drives, CD-ROM, USB memory devices, just to list a few.

In order to avoid spoliation of crucial evidence, special care must be taken when handling and analyzing computer evidence.

When acquiring electronic evidence, preservation of evidence is vital

.

Acquisition of evidence starts by creating a forensic image. We create a stream copy of the entire media being imaged, which is created by using a write protection device or application to prevent contamination and maintain evidentiary status.

Types of data often considered as critical evidence in litigation include:
  • e-mail
  • plain text and documents
  • images
  • calendar files
  • databases
  • spreadsheets
  • digital faxes
  • audio files
  • animation
