LEO: The Economics of Remote Digital Forensics...

At the speed of the modern global enterprise, cyber incidents are a growing component of operational risk, according to 1SecureAudit Managing Director and Chief Risk Officer Peter L. Higgins. Digital forensics intelligence provides analysts, investigators and management the ability to make more informed decisions regarding a prudent course of action. Utilizing digital evidence can mean the timely detection of unethical behavior by an employee or the intelligence nexus with kidnapping, child pornography, industrial espionage or terrorism. The legal process in a specific state or country and the preservation of evidence, chain of custody and even early case assessment are now a converging area of concern with local and state law enforcement, prosecutors and defense law firms.

"The 1SecureAudit Digital Forensics Practice capitalizes on the Digital Forensic POD powered by Evidence Talks Ltd. Our systems enable our team of subject matter experts to work on clients cases across the country or across the world," said Higgins. "Our certified professionals using the Digital Forensics POD gives a client quick access to resources that can help with an investigation without the high cost of flying people across the country or the globe."

"A good lesson learned from my first-hand experience in Afghanistan is that we depend on support back home from subject matter experts to help our soldiers remotely without the need to be in the actual combat zone," said Cristian Balan (CISSP, CHFI) of NY Computer Networks.

"We recognized that many police agencies, as well as law firms, needed an affordable solution to help clear up their digital forensics back log," said Craig Cantwell, SVDFL Forensics Laboratory Director. "By teaming up with 1SecureAudit and Cristian Balan and using our remote digital forensics POD systems, we are able to offer more clients a better economy of scale and service at a price that they can justify."

Counselors initial conferences and additional motions for discovery during litigation results in the need for additional digital forensics capacity. The Digital Forensics POD assists with case backlog especially as court dates approach rapidly or many cases at the same time. "We are excited to be working with Peter Higgins and the team at 1SecureAudit, as well as Cristian Balan of NY Computer Networks who brings his full Digital Forensic and Incident Response capabilities to the team," said Cantwell.

1SecureAudit has assembled a team of professionals that are ready to work on clients cases for a secure and timely response. With the advent of Remote Digital Forensics powered by Evidence Talks, the level of service and responsiveness that first responders can provide has increased tenfold. The firm's MetaLogic early case assessment services will ensure both civil and criminal cases are ready for an initial meeting with the legal teams.

The law enforcement organization, state or county prosecutors and private law practice now has access to experts across the country or the world at a moment's notice.
