Physical acquisition of digital data and containment of data.
Forensic collection is a discipline that includes the physical acquisition of digital data using a methodology that satisfies evidentiary requirements relating to chain-of-custody and authentication. We have extensive data collection capabilities to collect volatile and non-volatile data from sources such as live servers, workstations and handheld devices including hidden and deleted files, and data contained in unallocated disk space and partitions.
