Computer forensics can be used to investigate a wide variety of crimes, including cyberstalking, fraud, rape, murder, and child pornography.
While the term "Computer Forensics" sounds like something out of a TV crime drama, it has a much wider range than that. Useful in business and civil proceedings, computer forensics can involve correlating data from different hard drives and recovering deleted data. Whether you are a corporate executive or a homemaker, hiring a private investigator to perform a computer forensic analysis can make all the difference in your case.
Whether it is checking emails, social media sites, or text messages, a private investigator can use computer forensics to find relevant electronic evidence for his or her clients. Data recovered by a certified private investigator can be admissible in court, though the certification required for this varies from state to state, country to country.
At Graves-Wiley, our private investigators can recover electronic evidence from the following:
Personal digital devices including iPhones, BlackBerry smartphones, and other cell phones
iPads and other tablets
Hard drives (Computer, Laptop, External & Travel/USB)
Internet sites, including social media sites like Facebook
Married individuals who suspect their spouse is cheating may find the evidence they need through computer forensics.
Electronic evidence has become crucial in much of today's civil litigation. Proof of marital infidelity can be derived from emails and instant messages. Deleted documents and websites visited can be retrieved, as can text messages from cell phones.
Employers who suspect their employees of theft or misconduct might enlist the help of a private investigator in performing computer forensics.
He or she can determine if there is some sort of misconduct by searching the computer history, emails, and deleted documents. This investigation may produce the information that the employer needs to fire an employee or possibly launch some sort of litigation.
Our investigators will be able to reveal Internet usage, dates, and times that the Internet was accessed. In addition, we can report on what websites were visited and what files were downloaded. Graves-Wiley's professional private investigators know the process for preparing documents for court cases and legal cases, so we document this type of information carefully so it can be used in legal proceedings in the future.
