Perhaps you think of the latest crime thriller when you think of forensics. But not only a mysterious murder can be investigated forensically, but also cyber attacks, theft or manipulation of data, and unauthorized use of IT resources. This is exactly what we do with digital forensics. In this process, our forensics team systematically searches for digital traces in a way that is court-proof and clarifies the questions of what happened where, when, and how, who triggered it, and how this relates to the bigger picture. The goal is to reconstruct the security incident as completely as possible.
Digital forensics plays a crucial role in the detection and clarification of unwanted and even criminal activities in the digital world. It involves the collection, investigation, analysis, and interpretation of digital evidence generated by crimes or breaches of IT security. It is about identifying hacker attacks, data theft, data leakage or fraud cases and assessing them by means of digital evidence searches.
Strict rules apply to the investigation to prevent potential evidence from being irrevocably destroyed or rejected in court. IT forensic analyses require expert knowledge and specialized software and hardware. For this purpose, Oneconsult has a specifically trained and certified forensics team and its own forensics laboratory.
An IT forensic investigation usually begins with the securing of digital evidence to prevent the alteration or deletion of data. This is followed by the analysis of the secured data to extract relevant information and evidence. Forensic processes and recognized tools are used to recover deleted files, analyze metadata, review network communications, and identify suspicious activity. The findings are documented and can be used as evidence in legal proceedings.
