Cyber Security, Digital Evidence, and Computer Forensics
A computer forensics analyst can uncover crucial evidence to help you respond to a data breach or ransomware attack or win your day in court. We offer expert services here in Oakland.
Cybercrime is growing, and data security is a constant issue these days. An April 2018 data breach at San Francisco-based Dignity Health, which operates 39 hospital and 400 care centers, may have affected almost 56,000 patients, according to news reports.

A Digital Forensics Investigation Unlocks Vital Evidence
Computers and smartphones are a huge part of everyday life. As we use them, we generate a huge wealth of data:
- Text messages
- Timestamps, other metadata
- Third-party apps (Instagram, Snapchat, etc.)
- GPS logs
- Phone call records
- Photos, videos
All that information can be extracted to provide extremely potent evidence. A digital forensics analyst can even extract information from a device after a suspect tried to delete the data. An expert can recover information from RAID arrays, cell phones, vehicle computers, SSD drives, USB flash drives and more. Even cell phones and computers that have been sabotaged or no longer work often will contain evidence that a computer forensics analyst can extract.
Once processed, evidence is presented to the client in a clear report that is admissible in court.
