Data forensics and services for private and civil cases vary widely in scope and are based on our client's needs. In nearly all cases an electronic device such as a computer, cell phone, routers, firewalls and other equipment that stores or routes data is part of the problem or the solution.
UDF works closely with you on each case to determine which services are recommended based on the circumstances.
Data from cellular phones is forensically examined and data extracted with the same equipment used by government law enforcement agencies. Our equipment supports over 3,000 phones and our procedures ensure you receive the maximum amount of data from each phone. We can obtain data such as text and MMS messages, call logs, images, movies, contacts, calendars and more.
Computer espionage, including hacking, has become more common as companies expand their network communication and software networks. Espionage on a spouse or partner's computer is also becoming more common as inexpensive spyware is abundantly available for purchase on the Internet.
UDF has excellent success in detecting, documenting and removing these threats from your computing environment.
In Contract Litigation a computer often reveals evidence showing an intent prior to breaching a contract. Email's, instant message and other forms of communication leave trails that can be uncovered - including data that has been deleted.
Computer data and trails showing the planning and intent of copyright infringement are typically found computers and other data storage devices. UDF can search both existing and deleted data of these devices for information specific to your case including Email's, chat, drawings, documents and other forms of file storage.
Divorce, Child Custody and Family Law issues are always personal and life changing decisions that affect families. UDF is typically asked to search for evidence of affairs, banking information and other financial investments, Email communication, instant messaging, web sites visited and evidence of pornography or other inappropriate material. We will also examine cellular phones and other portable devices.
Our evidence has been used in divorce and child custody proceedings in numerous cases.
Internet and Internal Hacking typically occurs in a corporate environment where an outsider has penetrated the perimeter of the company's firewall using software that exploits flaws in the equipment and software being used.
Such breaches can steal data from your internal servers including financial, customer data and proprietary information - just about any type of data you store and rely upon to operate your business.
The affects can be devastating if not detected and stopped as soon as possible. A recent breach allow credit card informaton of over 100,000 persons to be obtained, sold and used on the black market.
Non-Compete and Data Theft are becoming more common as executives and non-excecutives are leaving companies and forming their own competing companies or going to work for a competing company.
Because sensative company data is often available to these employees as part of their job, they are using inexpensive thumb drives and small external hard drives to copy data to take with them. UDF is well versed in handling these types of cases.
Forensic data we obtain can easily be forwarded to an ESI processor for attorney review.
