Digital Crime Scene Investigators
Our experts understand the importance of their role performing data collections and, as such, do not take that obligation lightly.

Our team is truly the best in the business – men and women who have performed thousands of examinations for the FBI, the DEA, state and local Police, District Attorneys, and private industry, and have been qualified numerous times as experts. When engaged in the field, our team puts up the proverbial “crime scene tape” and does not rest until the job is done. Their mission and sole focus is to investigate the digital crime scene to identify, collect, preserve, search, produce and interpret electronic data in a manner that makes it admissible in legal proceedings.
Secure Lab and Chain-of-Custody Procedures
Our facilities are physically secured to law enforcement and international laboratory standards. Our forensic equipment is “stand alone,” not linked to the Internet, so that the integrity of our equipment cannot be compromised. We have implemented strict disaster recovery plans, so that if our facilities were damaged, your evidence would still be safe. The physical and digital security of our facilities and equipment is routinely subjected to outside review. Our analysts preserve chain-of-custody of evidence to law enforcement standards, so that admissibility of evidence is never a question.
