Multidisciplinary Approach to Digital Forensics

Software Engineers + Digital Forensic Examiners = Fast Actionable Intelligence

 
With so much information being leaked to cyber space, digital forensic investigations are a critical component of knowledge based discovery. We will help you discover the unknown unknowns about your case.
 
Cyber-trail, LLC is a digital forensic investigation firm supporting legal professionals and corporations in recovering Electronically Stored Information (ESI). We recover and analyze digital evidence from laptops, personal computers, mobile devices, social media, and data stored in the cloud. Our examiners recover digital evidence which has been hidden, encrypted, or deleted.
 
We follow forensic guidelines to prevent alterations to the original media and we maintain a strict chain of custody throughout the investigation. Any evidence uncovered is carefully documented within a “findings report” and verified with the original in preparation for legal proceedings such as discovery, depositions, or litigation.
 
Our examiners receive expert witness training so that their testimony is simple, helpful and engaging. We are aware that a person can be an excellent expert but make a bad expert witness. Our experts always maintain a professional appearance. They are trained in proper demeanor, gestures, posture and tone. Our experts are taught to avoid taking on an adversarial attitude during cross-examination. This helps to avoid any perception of bias. Our experts avoid posting any statements on social media or other public medium that could raise an issue as to the expert’s credibility or bias.
 
Our examiners have been certified as digital forensic experts through a minimum of two respected vendor neutral certification bodies such as the International Association of Computer Forensic Examiners.  A vendor neutral certifying body is one which focuses on the fundamental knowledge, skills and processes required for proficiency in digital forensics rather than on a specific tool. Our examiners are additionally certified in at least two vendor sponsored certifications such as those provided by Encase, Access Data and Cellebrite. Our examiners adhere to the International Society of Forensic Computer Examiner’s code of conduct.
 
Our firm has the training and experience to go beyond the inherent limitations of the commercial digital forensic software tools. We recover and analyze digital evidence the tools overlook. We accomplish this through the use of custom EnScripts and Python Scripts for use with Encase 7 Forensic and Cellebrite UFED Physical Analyzer. Our coders and examiners recover and analyze evidence faster and more effectively by working together on strategic solutions (custom code) to resolve complex digital forensic problem sets.  This multidisciplinary approach to digital forensics sets us apart in the field and saves our clients money. By utilizing custom code we can get the job done in a fraction of the time it takes to point-and-click our way to the solution.
 
Evidence uncovered may be in a generally recognizable form such as Outlook email data files.  However, evidence often comes in less recognizable forms especially evidence uncovered during a deep-dive analysis of Windows artifacts.
