You suddenly find a situation within your organisation that breaches security, internal policy or even criminality. You probably have systems in place to deal with such incidents.

In many cases however, there is not the capability to deal with any element of digital storage media. The method of seizure of computers, disks, USB drives etc has to be handled in a manner that would stand to scrutiny IF the matter were to end up before a Criminal or Civil court, Tribunal or any subsequent counter action! You can view our free advice page for more information.

Of course once digital media has been seized, it still has to be handled, viewed and evidenced using accepted methodology.

Here at High Tech Investigations, we have a full understanding of recovering digital storage devices and the data held on them. Whether its ‘fishing’ for information, through to full evidential package, we can assure you of a fully professional service from start to finish.

LEAN is a methodology whereby we help to reduce the amount of wasteful processes a company has – increasing the profit and quality of product, and reducing the stress that employees feel. The results can be measured in significant amounts of money. Six Sigma is a data driven business improvement process which is more complex than LEAN, but is very powerful in the right circumstances.  Marketing – PCL can help companies define a marketing strategy and then implement ( or make better use of a current ) CRM system to attract more customers.
