Online transactions are an increasingly important part of holiday retail sales. In the case of breach, digital forensics, the investigation of computer crime, has become critical.

The holiday season is fast-approaching and 2014 online sales for November and December are expected to grow 8-11 percent over last holiday season to as much as $105 billion, according to the National Retail Federation (Oct. 7, 2014).

With online transactions becoming an increasingly important part of holiday retail sales, Deadbolt Forensics advises businesses that digital forensics, the investigation of computer crime, is more essential now than ever before.

Involving digital forensics experts in data breach investigations has become critical.

“November and December mean big business for retailers and service providers across the country. The good news is that technology continues to create opportunities for new ways to reach more customers and increase profits,” said Michael Yasumoto, Senior Forensic Analyst at Deadbolt Forensics. “The bad news is that expanding technology also means more opportunity for criminals to steal company and customer private data and intellectual property.”

“When customer data is compromised, the consequences can be far reaching. It is vital that organizations contact a professional digital forensics agency whenever there is a possibility that electronically stored information, such as payment card information, has been compromised. Companies’ security and the protection of their customers’ personal information must be rectified swiftly.”

Deadbolt Forensics works with clients in the states of Oregon, Washington and Alaska, focusing on computer and mobile forensics and associated services.
