Many times we are asked if we can help employers with cases of computer misuse or IP Theft.
Whether you are an employer or a civil litigation solicitor, we can help.
Frequent use of computers by employees can lead to disputes, whether you have a disgruntled employee or an employee that is leaving to go to a competitor, you need to know your data is safe.
3Ef can look for signs of misuse or data theft and misuse by checking the following:
In the first instance, we can pull off the directories to see what information is there and let you direct further investigation, this keeps costs down considerably.
We believe there should be a staged approach to most investigation to keeps costs down and ensure we are only targeting the relevant information.
Once the forensic computer investigation is complete, we will put our findings in to a report suitable for use in court.
Over the years, we have recovered data from thousand of makes and models of mobile phones.
Not every case is recoverable and depends on levels of damage.
In most cases where there has been water damage, this has generally been accidental. Dropped down the loo is probably up there in terms of percentages.
Technology to improve erosion and damage to mobile phones is pretty good at the moment however, there is a difference...
Water resistant is just that, resistant to water but, only to low levels of water and shallow depths.
If you drop your phone in water and swoop it out within a reasonable time, the resistance may be enough to keep the water at bay.
Waterproof means, your phone is more likely to sustain water for a much longer length of time and depth.
Either resistance should be enough time to dry the phone out (remember, not to use rice).
We see a lot of mobile phones that have been in sea water too for different lengths of time and depths. 3EF are still able to recover data from seawater damaged mobile phones. Our success rates are fairly high in terms of getting the data, we cannot ensure the phone will be fixed however, the data is usually of the most important value.
