You belong to a company or a public authority (e.g. investigative authority, judicature, law enforcement or another public institution).
You have a suspicion that, concerning your own affairs, those of your clients or of an accused or impeached person, there exists an IT security incident, (compliance) rules or regulations have been violated, or even a crime has been committed. You want to find out more about an unclear situation related to an IT system. Therefore, you want to have this investigated in detail and eludicated. You wonder: Who has done what when and where, whereby, how and why?
IT forensics (also: computer forensics or digital forensics) can aid you towards this goal. This field deals with the collection and analysis of digital data traces arising in IT systems to be used as evidence that holds in court. IT-forensic specialists reconstruct events and facts based on such data traces, throw light on them and explain comprehensibly, what happened most likely.
When using IT systems, inevitably data traces are created, e.g. on storage media like hard disks or in the main memory of IT devices. Because offenders often use IT systems or zero on such IT systems, IT-forensic experts can convict persons of wrongdoing by analyzing such data traces from IT systems.
Often there persist good chances to reconstruct data at least partially. Even allegedly clever offenders occasionally slip up and overlook a detail due to the number, diversity and complexity of the IT systems and the enormous data amounts.
Here some examples from our experience:
