Our specialists and consultants are world leaders in the field of digital forensic investigation. We identify, preserve and analyse any data in any computer, device or network to help you protect your business from inappropriate data use or data loss. Here at 7Safe, we have been providing digital forensic investigation services to the public and private sectors for over 10 years. The technical skills of our consultants and their ability to adapt those skills and techniques is proven to suit even the most challenging of technical tasks and investigatons. 7Safe is proud to have partnered with the ACPO E-Crime Working Group and Metropolitan Police Service in the authoring and publication of the Good Practice Guide for Computer Based Electronic Evidence.
We use the latest forensic tools but it is our people who give us the edge over others. All of our senior consultants have at least ten years’ computer forensic experience and all have extensive experience of giving evidence at court. We deliver industry acclaimed forensic training courses from our training facility near Cambridge and our team has trained over 1,000 delegates in the last two years alone. We also invest in an apprenticeship programme to develop the computer forensic experts of the future.
A cyber investigation capability is now an essential component of all organisations who store customer or other valuable data as part of their business.
The risk of your network being compromised or ‘hacked’ by the presence of malware, or by individuals within or outside of your organisation, is growing, and the technical defence mechanisms relied upon over the last twenty years are no longer sufficient. It is now widely accepted that Antivirus (AV) solutions only identify 48% of threats, so it is vital for today’s organisations to be able to respond appropriately when compromises are detected. Identifying, securing and analysing relevant information on live networks today, during or following a cyber related event, requires specialist skills and knowledge so as to ensure any data loss is permanently halted and the vulnerability fixed. Isolating the offending piece of technology alone is seldom enough these days to remove the compromise.
Cyber investigations are complex and will include the examination of data from computers, servers, the cloud, switches, routers and many other network devices. 7Safe has the experience and ability to isolate a “rogue” digital footprint whilst gathering evidence of the “cyber event”, all of which is essential to help identify the root cause and to be able to identify malicious intruders.
We provide a full range of Cyber Security Incident Response (CSIR) solutions from advice to data collection, bespoke investigations, remediation and evidential statements and expert services.
Data Acquisition & Collection
In today’s modern organisation, investigations of any sort, commercial disputes and regulatory reporting typically require simultaneous data collection from various locations. 7Safe can support your organisation in small and large scale data collections, wherever your data is stored in the world.
Only trained digital forensic consultants have the skills and equipment to accurately and quickly acquire large volumes of data without compromising the integrity of the data - or indeed the metadata which is so often essential to the investigation efficiency. Poor or incorrect data collection methods are known to significantly increase the cost of investigations by as much as a factor of 10.
We have provided data collection services for multi-nationals, government departments, prosecuting and regulatory bodies in both criminal and civil matters. We have deep experience in collecting volatile and static data from technologies including web, database and email servers, large scale storage solutions, virtual environments and all manner of conventional (and some unconventional) digital devices used by private individuals and businesses.
7Safe will, with minimal notice, provide personnel and equipment required for your data and evidence collections both in the UK, Europe and further abroad.
