Digital Forensics Investigation
In a digital era where every individual possesses an electronic device or two at the very least, risks of cybercrime are on the rise, and forensics investigation becomes growingly important. Regardless of daily personal interactions or business activities and communications, urbanites have grown to rely heavily on the convenience brought by the internet and advancing technologies of electronic devices, such as mobile phones, tablets and computers. These devices are the link that bridges the lives of modern people, yet unfortunately, they can also be the very tool used in the commission of digital crimes.
What makes electronic devices so vulnerable for cybercrime?
Inevitably, each electronic device is a sea of data, records, digital footprints and hidden secrets, which give away a tremendous amount of information when put under close scrutiny – even when the data has been compromised, they can still be retrieved by professional hands.

What does HERALD offer?
1. Evidence Acquisition
The initial step of Digital Forensics Investigation is to obtain the concerned devices such as computers, mobile phones, hard drives and memory storage devices for close examination. The investigators will carefully inspect and preserve the data stored in the device to acquire relevant evidence, as well as find out if any data is damaged or lost.
2. Data Recovery
Digital evidence may be intentionally modified, encrypted, damaged or deleted in attempts to cover up tracks of crimes, deceits or unfaithfulness. We are specialized in data recovery on different devices in a number of aspects, such as SMS, messaging applications (i.e. WhatsApp, Telegram, Snapchat, etc), phone calls, emails, media files, location and web browsing history. Recovered data is able to reveal critical information, including the identities of the creator and sender, along with the time of creation, access and deletion. These are the puzzle pieces that will help you put together how and why a misconduct happens.
3. Analysis of Digital Data
Having secured important evidence, we will analyze and reconstruct the digital crime. A report detailing the result of the investigation will be prepared. Despite the technicality of the digital forensics field, our team of skilled investigators will present the data analysis in a clear and comprehensible manner so as to help you or the court understand the case. By identifying the culprit and documenting the digital data retrieved, our analysis will be a piece of strong and objective evidence to support litigation or any other further actions.
