Digital Forensics & Cyber Crime Investigation
Cybercrime Investigation, or computer oriented crime, is crime that involves a computer and a network. The computer may have been used in the commission of a crime, or it may be the target. Cybercrimes can be defined as: "Offences that are committed against individuals or groups of individuals with a criminal motive to intentionally harm the reputation of the victim or cause physical or mental harm, or loss, to the victim directly or indirectly, using modern telecommunication networks such as Internet (networks including but not limited to Chat rooms, emails, notice boards and groups) and mobile phones (Bluetooth/SMS/MMS)”.
Digitpol’s Cyber Crime Investigation experts investigate, analyse and recover forensic data from the Internet. Digitpol utilises industry standard Internet monitoring platforms to detect keywords and find evidence on servers globally. Data obtained from cyber channels is most effective when linked to physical evidence as additional proof.
When Digitpol is engaged, we ensure that no digital evidence is overlooked and assist at any stage of an investigation, regardless of the size or location of data sources. Claims of leaks, fraud, cyber espionage, financial tampering, computer crime, employee misconduct, and other illegal or wrongdoing actions require corporations, law firms, and government agencies to deploy digital forensic methods to piece together facts that lead to the truth.

Parties in litigation seeking to prove wrongdoing often find important evidence, clues and traces by analysing activities stored on cell phones and smart devices, including contacts and their creation dates as well as when and how often certain phone numbers were called. Digitpol provides the full analysis of all types of mobile phones.
