TCS Forensics and data preservation

Data preservation relates to the safe extraction and proper maintenance of information taken from various devices, so they can be presented to the court of law. This is called a digital forensic investigation, and it is our main domain of activity here at TCS Forensics.

We can extract and preserve data from computers, laptops, and more than 18,000 various mobile devices. This should tell you all you need to know about our capabilities and confidence in our abilities. If what you’re looking for is kept on a digital device, chances are we’ll be able to extract is safely.

What are the stages of examination we employ?

Regarding the orthodox stages of examination, we employ golden standards related to each one:

  • Evidence collection
  • Determining that the forensic copy is identical to the original
  • Proper preservation of forensic evidence
  • Evidence analysis by a Digital Forensics Examiner
  • Testimony in the court of law

TCS Forensics and data preservation go hand in hand. There can’t be one without the other! Following this principle, it’s clear a big part of our resources goes toward data preservation. Without it, it would be like cutting off an arm and halting our efficiency at 50%. Without presenting the relevant and unaltered evidence to the court of law, there can’t be a trial in the first place.

Evidence integrity

The essence of data preservation is the “preservation” part. As you well know, electronic devices can become faulty or damaged over time. The intervention of a third party like us could also result in such events. Of course, we employ every trick in the book to make sure this doesn’t happen. So far, we’ve been 100% successful in all our data preservation jobs.

To preserve data is to ensure the forensic copy is identic to the original, and that it remains so for the duration of the investigation and court trial. Through proper methodologies and forensic techniques, our team of experts can do that easily and efficiently. For instance, our Forensics Lab & Evidence Room has a fireproof floor sale as well as a written log where we record everything about the evidence.

At TCS Forensics, we always respect the chain of custody and document each step of the data acquisition process with detailed notes. We do so in order to ensure the data preservation process proceeds flawlessly, which always does when we take care of it. Before, during, and after we sample the data, our TCS Forensics team maintains rigorous data preservation measures.

That way, the evidence we found will be absolutely admitted to the court of law.

Why choose TCS forensics?

TCS Forensics is meticulous in taking care of evidence documentation, storage, security, organization, and retrieval of key forensic evidence from digital devices. We have always imposed the strictest work protocols and data retrieval techniques. By doing so, we ensure the proper preservation of data and its admissibility in the court of law.

Our team specializes in infiltrating digital devices or other mediums, identifying specific data lodes, extracting them, and preserving them in a pristine shape. To be admissible in the court of law, the data must be uncorrupted and unaltered. Otherwise, its objectivity can easily be put under question, making the data preservation process a failure.
