At Computer Forensic Labs, Inc. we can search and analyze multiple pieces of media at one time. Many investigations involve multiple hard drives, floppies, zip disks, and other media. Evidence files can be duplicated onto another hard drive and examined by the investigators Computer Forensic Labs, Inc. while preserving the integrity of the media for discovery and trial.
Computer evidence is oftentimes the deciding factor in a criminal or civil action. Cases involving trade secrets, commercial disputes, misdemeanor and felony crimes can be won or lost solely with the introduction of recovered e-mail and other electronic documentation. If an attempt has been made to delete, erase, or otherwise hide critical evidence, you need a competent data recovery professional from Computer Forensic Labs, Inc.
We recommend that you DO NOT attempt to search for the evidence yourself because this can change important date/ time stamps as well as user information, thus, possibly obstructing the investigation.
Mass Quantity Hard Drive Data Wipe and Sanitization Services
The computer industry is full of situations where used computers are being sold and redistributed with hard disk drives containing confidential data. Critical data such as banking account information, information protected by HIPAA, credit card numbers, social security data, human resource, accounting and other internal documents, or even restricted information concerning a company's intellectual property can be compromised. At Data Recovery Link, Inc. and Computer Forensic Labs, Inc. we are constantly recovering data from hard drives from the previous owner of the computer or hard drive. In some cases illegal pornography has been discovered on computers that were sold on the used computer market and had supposedly been erased.
This confidential data on discarded and refurbished hard drives should be reliably and completely wiped and destroyed according to the industry standards set forth by the Department of Defense (DoD) 5220.22-M, the Navy Security Operations (NAVSO) P-5239-26(RLL/MFM) and the HIPAA data protection acts. See "Data Destruction Standards" below on this page.
Our procedures meet the security standards set forth by the HIPAA regulations and the protection of confidential information acts. Our procedures also meet the DoD 5220.22-M and the NAVSO P-5239-26 (RLL/MFM) standards for data destruction and sanitization.
