The purpose of Forensic Investigations is the recovery and analysis of data that are present on digital devices, to be used as evidence in court. The forensic computer science or digital forensics has acquired an important role, not only in the presence of computer crimes, but also in the civil, commercial, fiscal or labor law fields.
Digital data are the most precious asset and the most strategic resource of any private or public company. Forensic investigations are the right solution to be able to identify data theft, industrial espionage, unauthorized access to IT systems and to respond to all potential legal disputes.
Computer forensics, or digital forensics, is responsible for identifying, storing, retrieving, analyzing and presenting computer data in order to produce a report on the evidence acquired useful in civil and criminal proceedings.
The objective of the process, during the execution of Forensic Investigations, is to preserve any evidence in its most original form and to collect, identify and validate digital information in order to reconstruct past events.
We support Computer Investigations with the experience and tools acquired in traditional surveys, carrying out digital investigations on all computer supports (smartphones, personal computers, servers, tablets, etc.), to provide a computerized expertise that has as main objective to preserve the evidence, ensuring the tracking of each activity.
In this case we speak of Digital Forensic Competency with the purpose of presenting valid evidence in civil and criminal proceedings.

- personal data theft
- scams with computer systems
- search for spy software (trojan, spyphone, keylogger, spyware, etc.)
