Digital Forensics is a growing field in both research and industry, as more and more businesses are becoming reliant on digital data: it deals with the search, recovery, preservation, and analysis of material found in digital devices.
For private companies, Digital Forensics can be an important tool to investigate a wide range of issues, including:
- Data breaches: When a company’s data is breached, digital forensics can be used to identify the source of the breach, the data that was stolen, and the individuals or organizations responsible. This information can then be used to improve the company’s security posture and prevent future data breaches.
- Cybercrime: Gathering evidence of cybercrime, such as hacking, fraud, and intellectual property theft. This evidence can then be used to prosecute the perpetrators in court.
- Employee misconduct: Digital forensics can be used to investigate employee misconduct, such as theft, fraud, and harassment. This information can then be used to take disciplinary action against the employee or to terminate their employment.
- Intellectual property theft: Investigating cases of intellectual property theft, such as the unauthorized copying or distribution of trade secrets. This information can then be used to take legal action against the perpetrators.
- Compliance: Digital forensics can be used to help companies comply with a variety of regulations, such as those governing data privacy and security. This includes conducting audits of company systems and data and providing training to employees on security best practices.

Our advice for those seeking digital forensics support
- Urgency is key! Act quickly by contacting TenIntelligence or your preferred digital forensics investigator as soon as possible.
- Do not attempt to recover or search for data yourself as this may tamper with the meta data available. Date and timestamps embedded in electronic documents form meta data that are essential in retrieving data as evidence.
