Digital forensic analysis is the process of retrieving and analysing data from any digital device to unveil the truth and solve a crime. It involves the retrieval, preservation, and recording of information from a digital device such as a mobile phone, a tablet, a laptop, and a hard drive.

Given their proliferation, digital devices have more become vital in criminal investigations. It is said that more than 9 out of 10 British adults own a Mobile Phone. British teenagers and young adults, who are considered digital natives, are even more reliant on digital devices. The younger members of society not only text but also tweet and share whatever they do on their social media accounts.

All information left on these digital items, called digital footprint, can come in handy when investigating a crime or trying to pin down the perpetrators of a criminal act. Details such as locations, times, and dates can aid investigators in uncovering the truth.

 What is a Digital Forensic Expert Witness


Unbiased, Impartial & Objective Viewpoint

 Aside from the fact that digital media has become such an indispensable part in the lives of many people around the world, there’s another reason why digital device forensics has been playing an important role in many cases today.

Digital devices like phones, tablets, and hard drives provide an honest, objective viewpoint. In short, the information that comes from these devices doesn’t lie. Small details such as Google searches, text messages, and call logs can prove to be the missing piece of the so-called puzzle in as far as solving a crime.

There have been a large number of high-profile cases both in the UK and Worldwide which have been solved through the help of digital forensic experts. Perhaps the most famous of these cases is the one involving the lethal prescriptions of Dr. Conrad Murray to music superstar Michael Jackson. After Jackson’s sudden death in 2009, autopsy report indicated that his death was due to him taking prescription drugs.

Soon, investigators discovered information from Dr. Murray’s computer indicating that he authorised the late star’s illegal use of prescription drugs. Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter. He lost his medical license and served two years in prison.

There are many other cases wherein digital footprint led authorities to identify the criminals and bring them to justice.


 A Quality Approach to Forensics & Digital Examinations

 Digital forensic science is a vast and continuously growing field. As more and more gadgets and electronic devices are introduced to and harnessed by people in their everyday lives, the list of popular approaches to it also continues to grow.

The following are some of the more popular overarching core digital forensic disciplines:


Computer Forensics

In computer forensics, information from computers, memory cards, storage servers, and external hard are recovered and examined to establish factual information. Data may range from deleted files like documents, videos, and images to communication data such as emails, Facebook messages, and Skype calls.

Even documents accessed and files transferred can establish factual information that may help in resolving a case. The same can be said of operating system data like system logs, databases and image thumbnails as well as Internet artefacts including user account information, downloaded data and browsing history.

Binary Forensics offers a comprehensive range of services for the analysis and reporting of Digital Forensic evidence for any Criminal based Investigation. Nowadays the broadness of digital sources we analyse is continually growing and includes the below.


Mobile Phone Forensics

Another type of digital forensic evidence that’s been widely accepted in the criminal justice system is mobile phone analysis. This involves the systematic retrieval and examination of data stored on mobile phone handsets and accessories such as memory cards and SIM cards.

Data from mobile phone handsets range from text and MMS messages, call logs, instant messaging, emails, images, videos, and music, among others. Even the browsing history of a smartphone can yield important information that can aid in solving a case.


Cell-Site Analysis

This process involves the placement of a mobile device in a particular location at a given date and time. Evidence garnered from the mobile device can give important information such as call logs and SMS events that may lead to the solving of a case.


Drone Forensics

Unmanned aerial vehicles like drones and quadcopters can be used to recover information such as videos, audio, images, journeys, and routes. As the prices of drones and quadcopters have fallen, these aerial vehicles have also been used in criminal activities like shipping prohibited drugs and conducting unauthorized air incursions.

This process involves the placement of a mobile device in a particular location at a given date and time. Evidence garnered from the mobile device can give important information such as call logs and SMS events that may lead to the solving of a case.
