Nowadays, it’s impossible to hide online activities entirely. Anything you do online leaves a trail that can be found and followed. Unfortunately, without the help of specialist digital forensic services, this data can be hard to find and even harder to collate into something a court case could see as viable evidence.

However, if you’re the victim of fraud, eDisclosure can help you locate the necessary evidence needed to prosecute. eDisclosure is the process of determining whether or not an electronic document exists or existed and whether you’re willing to allow the opposing party to view it. Our experts at Blackhawk Intelligence can show you how to approach this complicated process and navigate it successfully.

Recovering data

The process involves the disclosure of Electronically Stored Information (ESI), which can then be used in legal proceedings. Due to the immense amount of data many companies store the process can be very time-consuming, and having a lawyer manually sort through the data can incur substantial costs. Using our eDisclosure service follow this process:

  • Identification
  • Preservation
  • Collection
  • Processing
  • Analysis
  • Review
  • Production
  • Presentation

Adhering to this process and an electronic disclosure reference model allows us to ensure that the data we obtain maintains its forensic level integrity. It also allows us to present it in an acceptable format that can be easily translated and understood in court, both during the litigation process and also when presented to you and your colleagues.

It’s important to act quickly and efficiently to obtain the critical electronic information that you need for your court case. The faster you collect the data, the more time you have to analyse it and to familiarise yourself with the results before you head to court. We also ensure that our service costs are transparent so that you are aware of exactly what you’re paying for.

IT forensics

Though eDisclosure can provide the forensic evidence needed in court, it can be collected in a myriad of ways from numerous different sources. Fraudsters have gotten smarter as technology has advanced in recent years, and they can hide evidence much better than ever before. Therefore, the field of IT forensics is a vital one, and any service you use must show a comprehensive understanding of the different areas of investigation.

Our IT forensic investigators are experts at uncovering crucial data and have a lot of experience in analysing computer-based evidence. Some of our dedicated services include:
