Computer Forensics & eDisclosure Services

MD5's computer forensic services help customers looking to obtain forensically sound electronic evidence from their computer sytems.  Our work falls into 2 areas:

Retrospective Computer Forensic Investigations

When there is suspicion that a computer system has been used in an improper or illegal manner, MD5 computer forensics can undertake a retrospective computer investigation to identify and collect any evidence of the misuse still present on the computer system.  In many cases MD5 computer forensics are able to recover evidence even when the perpetrator has deleted information to prevent information being found.  We are able to conduct onsite collections of your data from the suspect machines and perform detailed searches to find evidence relating to an incident using the latest computer forensic technologies.  Further information about this can be found on our computer forensic services pages.
