Forensic IT

Research Associates offer govenment grade forensic examination to both corporate and private markets. Forensic IT requires a high degree of technical know-how, combined with an up to date understanding of the legal system. This understanding and insight is a vital necesssity as IT investigation may inadvertently become tarnished or compromised either by an inability to lay out technical IT investigation results in a presentable and legal format, or by an IT technician’s lack of experience as a professional witness (however skilled the IT technician may be). This may seriously jeapordise potential legal action. Therefore, prior to instruction, Research Associatesrecommend clients avoid unnecessarily tampering with a suspect machine and to obtain appropriate advice, preferably before the device is touched or even switched on/off. For all cases of IT forensics, including mobile telephones, PC/Macs and other IT devices/media, Research Associates stock a range of evidence bags designed to isolate the suspect device and so protect potential evidence. These are available at no cost, by calling during normal office hours:
