Computer Forensics Services

Computer Forensics of Boston is experienced in identifying, recovering, and analyzing digital data to prove what happened, when it happened, how it happened and who was involved.

Computer Forensics of Boston can provide electronic data acquisition, searching, filtering and consolidation of data including e-mails, latent data, archival data, and files. This information can be derived from virtually any type of media, including hard drives, backup tapes, CD-ROM, floppy disks, Zip disks and complex server environments.

Our comprehensive link analysis and correlation of unstructured data can be used to build timelines and relationships between entities involved. This provides new insight to the chain of events relating to a matter. Although analyzing unstructured data such as documents and e-mails has traditionally been a labor-intensive task, Computer Forensics of Boston has developed methodologies and tools to expedite the process, thereby reducing the time required as well as the cost.

To help businesses ensure compliance and lower risk, Computer Forensics of Boston has created a proprietary program for electronic exit interviews, conducted on employee workstations. Just as traditional exit interviews provide an understanding of the reasons for departure, our program provides insight into compliance violations committed by the departing employee. Human Resource Departments often hire our firm to image and archive employee systems, which allows the data on the system to be retrieved at anytime. This also ensures the integrity of the data contained on the system.

Computer Forensics of Boston’s Certified Forensic Technicians are skilled at seizures as well as acquiring and delivering data in hostile environments. While most engagements handled by our experts are in a friendly or controlled environment, our technicians are experienced in working with IT departments and corporate security to acquire and archive data in less-than-friendly situations.

Under a Service Level Agreement (SLA) with no cost up front or hourly charges unless a team responds, Computer Forensics of Boston can provide Emergency Response Teams that can be deployed on site within hours in Boston or most major metropolitan areas. They are also guaranteed to arrive on site with 12-24 hours almost anywhere in the world. Our network of responders are certified, highly trained, and strategically located to maximize response times.

Having Computer Forensics of Boston standing by to respond to IT incidents helps put organizations into compliance with legislation like Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) and Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, as well as FDIC, OCC and SEC regulations. Our no-cost-to-contract philosophy allows for the implementation of a stand-by team who can readily respond without having to pay up-front retainers or costs for services that may never be used. In the case of an incident needing a response, our clients simply contact the national call center to provide details and location of the incident and our team is dispatched as soon as possible.
