(PRWEB) August 05, 2014
In today’s day and age, technology issues have popped up everywhere in criminal and civil matters. Many law firms are inundated with cases related to corporate data breaches, employee misconduct and intellectual property theft. Most recently, in the case of Moyer v. Michaels (Art & Supply) (Case No. 1:140cv-00561, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois) the company was charged with exposing as many as 2.6 million customer credit and debit card numbers in a data breach. The cyber-attack which occurred from May 8, 2013 – Jan. 27, 2014 left customers vulnerable to identity theft, fraudulent payments and account withdrawals.
In cases like these, it is very important for law firms to hire the proper digital forensics investigator as they are experienced in technology footprints and how data moves throughout the system. Conducting a proper digital investigation can often times determine the ultimate success of the firm.
Michael Yasumoto, Senior Forensic Analyst at Deadbolt Forensics has provided these tips to attorneys on how Digital Forensics agencies can help their next technology related case on the following issues:
Recovery of hidden or destroyed data, including formatted hard drives
Mobile forensics evidence including cell phones (both smart and feature phones), PDAs, GPS devices and tablets/iPads
Theft of intellectual property or trade secrets
