Digital Forensics South Africa
Digital Forensics is a broad term within the IT field. Many use the term in the context of tracking the origin of hacks and general system breaches while to others it refers to data that can be presented to a court.
The term “Forensics” emanates from the Latin “In-Forensis” which translates loosely to “before the people” In keeping with this, forensics is effectively the presentation of data in a replicable and auditable manner without changing the original.
We do all forms of Digital Forensics such as Cyber Forensics (Penetration Testing / Hacking Recovery / Cyber Investigations), Cellular Phone Analysis, Hard Drive Analysis, Device Acquisitions and Due Diligence Investigations.
Business Continuity Planning
Business continuity planning, while not specifically a forensic service, relies heavily on the abilities of a response team and forensic specialists following an incident.
Cellular Phone Analysis
The knowledge that critical evidence exists and rests within a handset is a cause of frustration if one cannot access it in a forensically sound manner.
Cellular Phone Debugging
