McCann Investigations Computer Forensics Investigators Bring Expert Witness Testimony to San Antonio Clients

San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) December 12, 2013

McCann Investigations, a digital security and private investigations firm based in Texas, recently announced that it now offers the expertise of its professional digital security analysts for expert testimony in San Antonio court cases.

McCann provides a wide variety of digital forensics services, including traditional surveillance and computer security. All of the specialists at the agency must undergo rigorous training and have gained extensive field experience, which makes them perfect witnesses in court cases that require experts to clearly explain the significance of digital evidence found in investigations.

"We are always happy to be of use to the Texas court system," said Daniel Weiss, Managing Partner at McCann Investigations. "All of our investigators are capable of giving clear, knowledgeable testimony that makes it easier for judges and juries to understand exactly why evidence being presented to them is significant."

Computer forensics examinations typically involve analysts poring over files found on computers, laptops, flash drives, external hard drives, mobile devices and servers. These analysts extract any evidence that they find, and then use that evidence to track down the perpetrator of that crime and determine how they managed to accomplish their crime.

Because jury members and judges typically do not have expertise in digital security, the testimony services provided by McCann's San Antonio digital security specialists are extremely important to the process of any case. The evidence that they provide could sway the verdicts given by the court.

"We have great confidence in the ability of our digital security analysts to clearly articulate the significance of any evidence that they find," said Weiss. "The years of experience and the amount of training that these men and women have undergone is a major asset to court proceedings."

McCann Global Investigations Provides New Website Resources for Understanding the Computer Forensics Process

McCann Global Investigations Provides New Website Resources for Understanding the Computer Forensics Process

McCann Global Investigations: 25 Years of Service

Houston, TX (Vocus/PRWEB) March 16, 2011

McCann Global Investigations provides new resources on its websites, and that outline the Computer Forensics Process from imaging through extraction through analysis. McCann Globals new resource pages ensure that clients have a clear understanding of the processes that are involved and their importance in maintaining the integrity of the data.

The Computer Forensics Process: Analysis

When the security of your company has been compromised, it is important to follow the correct procedure for building a case with sound forensic evidence. The right evidence gathered in the wrong way can ruin any chances of presenting the data in court, and since electronic data can be a crucial factor in any case you take up, using the proper procedure is essential. To gather this evidence, you need a specialist with knowledge of hardware architecture and software systems—as well as the legal process.

    Experienced computer forensic technicians follow a set process to find and expose the digital fingerprints left behind in emails, Internet histories, files and networks. By having these professionals extract this information, you have evidence that can be used in a courtroom if any legal action needs to be taken. If you suspect that an employee is using private company information for their own personal gain, the first step is to contact a computer forensics expert.

    In order for any evidence to be considered forensically sound, the information must be found and analyzed by an experienced professional outside of your company. Evidence can be considered contaminated if the imaging is done within the company. McCann Global Investigations technicians use techniques that abide by both state and federal regulations for civil and criminal cases.

    After a technician acquires a forensically sound image of the device in question, the next step is analysis. McCann Global Investigations experts will determine what types of files—documents, images, etc.—can be recovered in the data. We gather information from email servers and their mailboxes, file servers, home directories and shared folders, as well as data pertaining to the type and location of data, electronic storage policies and back-up procedures. Aside from the content of the device, our specialists also extract metadata that identifies the file’s creator. This includes when it was modified and when it was sent.

    After the images have been analyzed and the non-essential data discarded, the relevant information is uploaded into the Venio program, which is a very in-depth and forensically sound resource. The client, other counsel that may get involved and professional researchers can then use the same recovered data for analysis.

    In addition to computers, our experts also analyze floppy disks, zip disk tapes, USB drives, flash cards and network servers that can contain information that is important to your case. McCann Global Investigations specialists not only retrieve hidden or encrypted data from networks, hard drives and electronic sources, but also document every point of discovery in the process. This information is then compiled into a clearly written report explaining what the data reveals.

If you choose to take legal action, our investigators can testify in court with this forensically sound data as accredited investigators with years of experience and knowledge of the legal process. A third party is essential to establish the validity of your investigation so that the data found is not considered contaminated.

Digital Investigations, Real Results

In a digital world, evidence isn’t as easy to spot as a smudged fingerprint or a smoking gun. McCann Global Investigations employs the most qualified and experienced investigative technicians in the field to find and analyze the electronic fingerprints your employees leave behind. Our local Houston-based investigators can quickly and discreetly undertake any inquiry into harmful activity at your company.

McCann Global Investigations can provide the services your company needs when your security is compromised:
