Law & Forensics (“L&F”) is a recognized industry leader in cloud computing based forensics. Our team of experts is capable of recovering all types of deleted, corrupt, missing or inaccessible data stored in the cloud. We help law firms and companies run successful investigations and return to normal operations after they have been breached.

Cloud computing based forensics may be new to mainstream media, but to us it’s old news. Our experienced team leads the industry in securing data in the cloud and responding to breaches. We deliver critical guidance on how to respond to and manage forensic and data breach issues specific to the cloud.

Analyze network packets, malware activity, RAM memory analysis, video forensic analysis, and forensic tape analysis at our labs.

Forensics

Assist companies in finding relevant data by: collecting, preserving and harvesting data from mobile devices, hard drives, and backup tapes (e.g. deleted, hidden, lost or encrypted files), collecting data in a wide range of formats and media all over the world, and preserving data in a forensically sound fashion (e.g. locked, fireproof safe for evidentiary).

Expert Witness

Case Studies

Problem: Client was compromised by a malicious cyber attacker.

Solution: L&F recovered more than a dozen servers belonging to the company that were taken off-line by a malicious cyber attacker in less than 48 hours. After L&F cleaned and recovered the data from the servers, it identified the source of the breach and remediated the problem.

Problem: Client’s private cloud was breached.

Solution: Retained by an aerospace team to remediate a breach of their private cloud. An L&F team member was onsite at the data center located in the Middle East within 24 hours of the cyber incident. L&F identified the breach in the private cloud, and spearheaded the remediation efforts that included cleaning and recovering dozens of servers that hosted critical and essential data in the company’s private cloud.

Problem: Client was unable to recover deleted files.

Solution: Hired by a global health and beauty products company to recover hundreds of files deleted from a Dropbox account by a disgruntled employee. L&F also identified several backdoors that the employee had left that, if left undeleted, could have resulted in the loss of more than fifty million dollars.
