Computer Forensics

What is Computer Forensics?

Computer forensics is a computer investigation and analysis technique used to acquire civil, criminal or administrative evidence from a computer system. Some reasons for seeking this type of evidence may include: theft of trade secrets, destruction or theft of intellectual property, criminal misuse, or fraud. Kimmons utilizes numerous methods for discovering data on a computer system. These methods can also recover encrypted, damaged or deleted files. The information found can be useful in depositions, litigation, or discovery. Deleted emails and texts can often be retrieved as well.

Who can Benefit from this Type of Investigation?

Criminal prosecutors use computer evidence when prosecuting crimes involving financial fraud, child pornography, and illegal drug related cases. Civil litigants use personal and business records found on computer systems when litigating divorces, discrimination, or harassment cases.

Corporations use computer forensics specialists to gather evidence relating to embezzlement, employee misconduct, misappropriation of funds or trade secrets, and sexual harassment. Individuals frequently hire computer forensics specialists to support their claims of age discrimination, sexual harassment or wrongful termination.
