Computer forensics

Inappropriate use of computers

You may have reason to suspect employees have used their work computers to access pornographic or other inappropriate material.

Perhaps you have received a disturbing email or your computers have been used to send disturbing emails. You may have been alerted to a potential fraud. You need to get to the bottom of this.

Electronic records are volatile. It is critical they are copied in a forensically sound manner, using specialised tools, by computer forensic experts. Avoid the temptation to examine the computer until a forensic copy has been preserved, otherwise you may inadvertently destroy or alter the very evidence you may hope to rely on later.

Experience counts

You need results fast. We are specifically geared to respond at very short notice throughout New Zealand and further afield. We use network forensic tools which enable us to remotely review multiple computers simultaneously in a sound and covert manner saving time and money.

We have one of New Zealand’s leading forensic technology practices. Our experts have completed hundreds of cases where people have used computers, mobile phones and other electronic devices for inappropriate purposes in a variety of cases ranging from employment matters to serious criminal matters. Our computer forensic experts have provided evidence to Court on over 60 occasions, involving both serious civil and criminal matters.

We can help you:
  • Secure the evidence in a forensically sound manner;
  • Identify the relevant evidence;
  • Liaise with the Police and other enforcement agencies;
