Discovery is the process that takes place at the initial phase of litigation when parties in dispute are required to provide each other with relevant information and evidence pertaining to the case. Electronic Discovery or eDiscovery applies to the electronically stored information (ESI) component of discovery. Which has quickly become the bulk of discoverable information during a legal proceeding.
Examples of ESI include emails, website content, sms text messages, instant messages from peer-to-peer apps, electronic documents and accounting databases. ESI can also encompass raw data or metadata, which our expert investigators can analyze for hidden evidence.

Digital Forensics is the practice of preserving, collecting, analyzing, and presenting evidence located on computers and other digital devices. This field is also often referred to as Computer Forensics and is distinctly different from other technical specialties, which focus on the creation or management of digital data. The difference is due to the specialized nature of Digital Forensics, which is most often utilized for investigative or legal purposes. Every case in Digital Forensics is unique based on the investigative goals and the circumstances of the case..
Popular depictions on fictional crime dramas simplify digital forensics cases as just requiring the press of a single button of an automated tool and then the “smoking gun” instantly pops up on the screen. This popular portrayal of digital forensics is far from the truth. Digital Forensics requires an in-depth knowledge of filesystems, storage devices, operating systems, networks, databases, programs, the internet, and legal procedures; in order to be able to successfully understand all the pieces of evidence that form the complete picture of the case.
This combination of knowledge requires skilled experts across multiple disciple. Here at Data Analyzers, we have trained and certified forensic experts to perform these duties for your investigative needs. We employ Certified Computer Examiners to perform our forensic examinations. Using our staff, we offer these essential computer forensic services:
• Forensic Imaging
• Forensic and Enterprise Data Collections
• Full Forensic and Network Investigations
• Discreet Network Acquisitions
• Metadata Analysis
• Affidavits and Detailed Expert Reports
Digital Forensics requires the use of rigorously tested and forensically sound methods to ensure any evidence holds up in the court of law. From the initial acquisition of electronically stored information to the final conclusions in an expert witness report, all the evidence must be handled in admissible and defensible way. This differs from traditional data recovery, where any technique is permissible to be utilized no matter how destructive it may be, as long as the data is recovered.
Here at Data Analyzers we utilize these standards for all our Digital Forensic cases in order to ensure they are of the highest quality:
• Forensically Sound Tools and Procedures
• Tested Hardware Write Blockers
• Industry Leading Software and Techniques
• Secured Evidence Storage and Access Tools
