At times, collecting data remotely is the best alternative to acquisitions performed on-site for various reasons. The Oliver Group (TOG) has exceptional, proven and highly defensible capabilities in Remote Collection.
Why TOG Remote Collection?
Remote collection is the best answer for various data acquisition and forensic analysis scenarios and reasons:
o data to be collected is for a small number of custodians from a remote office, state, region, city or country
o data was just acquired for 100 custodians and number 101 was just added
o budgetary constraints are eliminated by not having to incur travel costs in sending an expert to locations for a low number of custodians
o remote collection is efficient, economical and defensible
TOG’s Remote Collection Process
TOG has a rigorous remote collection process that is performed by the best in the industry. Upon execution of all contractual, chain-of-custody and evidence control documentation, a TOG Client Services Manager, along with one of TOG’s data acquisition and forensic analysis experts facilitate and manage the remote collection process. We provide secure, court-approved, industry proven encrypted hardware/software solutions with detailed step-by-step instructions, along with a certified TOG expert via phone support to manage the remote forensic acquisition effort.
TOG’s remote collection technologies and methodologies allow for full forensic images as well as targeted file, folder, mapped network paths and other custom tailored collections as needed by the client. TOG’s meticulous remote collection process supports acquisition and forensic analysis efforts from Windows, MAC and Linux (open) based file systems. TOG utilizes strict encryption policies from source to destination and delivery to receipt of forensically sound data at either their US or UK headquarters.
Post Remote Collection
Once the data has been remotely collected, TOG can provide an array of forensic discovery services at either their US or UK headquarters. TOG decrypts the delivery disk never altering metadata during the remote collection process lifecycle. TOG can perform a number of services such as recovery of deleted items, removal of system files, filtering by date range, searching by keyword and deduplication of data as requested by the client. TOG will also produce standard or custom reports on all projects. Report samples include USB utilization, file listings, etc. TOG experts provide forensic analysis to determine website viewing history, if peripherals were connected, data was “wiped” and if other web based email, cloud or other important technologies are /were prevalent on the machine.
