E-Discovery

Milwaukee County CourthouseElectronic discovery, or e-discovery, refers to the process of obtaining and preserving digital evidence for use in a legal proceeding. The specialized hardware and software used by digital forensic examiners ensures the integrity of the information can be verified as original and unaltered, allowing recovered data to be admitted as courtroom evidence.

Examiners make a forensically-identical image of the device in question. Examinations are made on the copied disc image to prevent unintended changes or damage being made to the source disc. Examiners employ the use of a write blocker while creating the forensic clone to prevent data corruption and provide safeguards against tampering.

The source disc is assigned a hash value in one or more standard formats which will allow any corroborating legal investigator to verify the disc contents.

These safeguards are what make digital evidence admissible in legal proceedings under the strictest integrity. Hiring a certified digital forensics legal investigator is critical for any law firm looking to preserve evidence in support of their case.
