Lawyers and Private Investigators Have Access to New Secure In-Office Remote Digital Forensics
PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. -- RemoteForensics.us, in collaboration with Southern Vermont Digital Forensics Laboratory and NY Computer Networks, has announced Remote Digital Forensic services for the private legal practice markets. With the return of their associate MAJ Cristian Balan (CISSP, CHFI) from a recent tour of duty with the U. S. Army in Afghanistan, the team is well positioned to offer full Digital Forensic and Incident Response to clients throughout the U.S. and abroad.
"Computer forensics investigation is an increasingly important part of both civil and criminal trials, as more and more information is stored and transmitted electronically," said Frederick S. Lane, an attorney and computer forensics analyst. "Unfortunately, the cost of such vital work is often an impediment for clients. Remote Digital Forensics has the potential to substantially reduce the cost of forensics analysis and make it more affordable for a wide range of litigants and defendants." Lane, who also operates ComputerForensicsDigest.com, will be one of the forensics analysts affiliated with RemoteForensics.us.
If new or existing litigation cases require Digital Forensics expertise or if there is a need for additional on-demand capacity to deal with an e-discovery case backlog, Remote Forensics can provide a law firm's needs. The company's certified forensic examiners can work on cases without the physical evidence leaving the attorney's office and without violating attorney-client privilege, evidentiary requirements, and chain of custody.
"We recognized that many law firms needed an affordable solution to help clear up their Digital Forensics and e-discovery back log," said Craig Cantwell, SVDFL Forensics Laboratory Director. "By teaming up with Frederick S. Lane and Cristian Balan among others and using our Remote Digital Forensics POD system, we are able to offer more clients a better economy of scale, and quicker service at a price that they can justify."
The Remote Digital Forensics PODs allow computer forensics experts to conduct full speed remote digital investigations from anywhere in the world. The POD system is a patent-pending hardware/software solution, which offers fully secure, real-time imaging and analysis – allowing the company's team of forensic analysts to respond faster and eliminate travel costs. Using a fairly standard issue computer, a Digital Forensic expert in Vermont or New York, or anywhere in the world, can perform a full forensic investigation of a computer in California or Tennessee, or wherever without leaving his lab or the evidence leaving an office.
