Frequently
Asked
Questions

Computer forensics is a branch of forensic science that focuses on the investigation and recovery of data found in computers — particularly in digital crime. Flashback Data specializes in investigation of computers, which is different than digital forensics, which encompasses all forms of devices that can store digital data.

Our processes involve collecting activity on computers and equipment to transport to our lab. We store the original data to prevent cross-contamination, then examine the device to determine the correct extraction method to find relevant information for the investigation.

Flashback Data can perform investigations for all types of cases, including civil and criminal matters. We routinely assist law enforcement with criminal investigations, and we have also worked with attorneys on matters of family law, corporate IP theft, hacking incidents, and more.

Expert witness and testimony

Our staff’s backgrounds in technology, law enforcement, and intelligence, lets us arrange expert witness testimonies to support our data recovery and evidence. We can also create affidavits and reports to match case requirements.

Forensic data recovery

Our full-service data recovery lab can help retrieve data when traditional forensic tools cannot due to device damage or challenging events, such as crashed hard drives, non-working servers, and damaged memory sticks. We can perform these recoveries without sending the device to another location, which can help maintain evidence chain-of-custody.

Evidence collection and preservation

Our experts always enforce chain-of-custody protocol to help ensure all collected evidence is accountable, and we incorporate complex hash algorithms to protect all data. We can accommodate requests of all sizes for desktop computers, laptops, backup devices, email servers, and network shares.

It is not uncommon for someone to intentionally damage a device that is involved in a potential legal dispute. Our on-site full-fledged data recovery lab can assist with recovering data from devices that would be otherwise inaccessible. This makes us different from other computer forensics services.

Flashback Data’s lab has four zones that are biometrically secure. We also have a steel evidence cage with motion sensors and 24/7 on-site security surveillance and video monitoring to help keep all devices and data that enter our facility as secure as possible.

Our laboratory is ISO/IEC 17025:2005 compliant and accredited by the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors/Laboratory Accreditation Board under the same program as the FBI and state law enforcement (ASCLD/LAB International).
