Detica team created for immediate response to computer crime

Detica Forensics : 09 July, 2008  (Company News)
Computer forensics team ready to deal with the changing face of computer crime and respond quickly to security breaches before activity traces can be cleared
A specialist team of digital forensics investigators is now on standby at Detica ready for urgent, off-site live digital forensics investigations. The Live Data Capture (LDC) Team at Detica Forensics has been created to tackle the growing numbers of incidents in which fraudulent activities are completed, often in unorthodox locations, leaving few traces after the event.

'The changing face of crime, the rapid impact of its effects and the transient nature of some crucial evidence mean that we must always innovate in our approach to investigations,' explained Nick Spenceley, Head of Detica Forensics. 'Our latest initiative has been to establish a team of specially trained investigators ready to be called out anywhere in the UK for live data capture and digital forensics analysis designed to capture transient evidence of illegal activity.'

Armed with a suite of commercial and proprietary portable forensic tools, the LDC team, which has a thorough understanding of the legal requirements of digital forensics investigations, can be called out to capture and image data from virtually any digital device or network. The team is specially skilled in live capture of ephemeral data for on-the-spot analysis.

'Our procedures are routine, but investigations are nearly always challenging,' continued Nick Spenceley. 'The unexpected is the norm and our LDC team has therefore been carefully selected based on depth and breadth of experience. These are one-chance operations to gather evidence on suspected criminals and fraudsters and there is no room for error or inexperience.'

The Detica Forensics LDC team can be called into action for investigations in which fraudsters and criminals can be caught in the act as they are transferring or trying to destroy evidence. The team has already been deployed on cases involving IP theft and fraud.
