Digital Forensics Investigation

Digital forensics investigation involves the collection, preservation, analysis, and presentation of electronic data in a manner that is admissible in court. Electronic data provides clues and critical evidence to help in the discovery of cybercrimes. This would include data theft, crypto crimes, security breaches, evidence of hacking, and more. Forensics Investigators play a key role in resolving complex data challenges.

Using a variety of tools and special software, investigators can help to:

  • Find the source and cause of a cyberattack
  • Identify what activity took place and duration of the breach
  • Build a timeline of criminal events, like unauthorized access or data altering
  • Secure digital evidence

Digital forensics investigation can help identify and prove many different kinds of wrongdoing, including data theft or data disclosure, internet abuses, system or network breaches, business espionage, and financial fraud. An overview of the steps involved is as follows:

Step 1: Identify

The first step in a digital forensic investigation is to identify the digital devices that may contain relevant evidence. This includes computers, smartphones, tablets, servers, and any other devices that may be relevant to the case. Devices are seized, isolated, and protected from tampering. Access to network, server, or cloud data is restricted to investigators only.

  • Seize & Isolate Devices
  • Eliminate Tampering 
  • Limit access to networks
  • make forensic image
  • secure data in safe location

Step 2: Extract and Preserve

Once devices have been seized and stored securely, the digital forensics investigator uses special forensic techniques to extract any and all relevant data to the active investigation and ensures it is stored securely.

This step involves making a digital copy or a “forensic image” of the relevant data. This image is then used for evaluation and analysis. To prevent any tampering with the original data, even if the investigation is compromised, the original data and devices are moved to a secure location, such as a safe.

Step 3: Analyze

Once the evidence has been collected, investigators will typically use specialized software tools to analyze the data and look for evidence of intellectual property theft. This may involve searching for keyword patterns, analyzing metadata, and identifying patterns of behavior that suggest theft.

  • keyword patterns
  • analyzing metadata
  • identifying patterns
  • Create Report
  • Present Findings
  • Present Admissible Evidence 

Step 4: Document and Present

After the analysis is complete, a report is typically created summarizing the findings of the investigation. The report should be clear and concise, and should present the findings in a way that is easy for non-technical individuals to understand.

The final step in the process is to present the findings to a court, committee, or group that will determine the outcome of  an internal complaint or a lawsuit..

The digital evidence should be presented in a way that is admissible in court, and the forensic investigator may be called upon to provide expert testimony regarding the evidence and the investigation process.

Intellectual Property Theft

Intellectual property theft can have serious consequences for your business, such as loss of revenue, market share, customer trust, and brand value. Intellectual property theft can also expose you to legal and regulatory sanctions, lawsuits, and reputational damage.

  • unusual transactions
  • unusual network activities,

Business eMail Compromise

BEC attacks are a type of cybercrime where a perpetrator impersonates a legitimate entity to deceive an organization's employees into divulging sensitive information or authorizing fraudulent financial transactions. BEC attacks are devastating to a company's financial health and reputation.

CyberTend Consulting's digital forensics investigation uses specialized tools and techniques to gather and analyze digital evidence related to a BEC attack. This evidence includes email logs, network traffic data, and metadata from compromised files.

By analyzing this data, the investigator can identify the tactics, techniques, and procedures used, as well as the source of the attack.

The importance of digital forensics investigation for BEC cases cannot be overstated. Without a proper investigation, a business may not be able to recover stolen funds or assets, and may also be at risk of further attacks.
