It’s almost impossible to imagine life without the internet. Whether it’s for work, socialising or research, computers have become a vital part of our lives.
However, our reliance on the web has spawned its own problems, most notably cyber crime. From computer hacks to criminal dealings in the depths of the dark web, the internet has created the perfect platform for crime.
As the threat of cyber crime grows, so too does the importance of computer forensics. In fact, according to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research Digital Forensics, the digital forensics industry will grow to record levels over the next five years. The report predicts that the global digital forensics market will grow from its 2014 value of $2.03 billion to reach $4.97 billion by 2021 as businesses and governments crack down on cyber crime.
At Frenkels Forensics we have already seen a rise in demand for computer forensics. As criminals become more and more technologically savvy, it’s becoming increasingly necessary to collect, identify and extract evidence from computers, hard disks, mobiles and laptops.
Our team of in-house computer forensic experts work tirelessly to not only uncover information, but analyse it to determine what actions were performed, when and by whom. By following the trail of actions performed on a computer, the experts can glean vital information that can be used in a court case, whether it is fraud, financial misbehaviours or criminal activity.
