Specialists in civil and criminal investigations, recovering data from all digital devices
Digital forensics experts with extensive experience collecting, preserving and analysing digital evidence from multiple forms of media held within the UK and internationally. We have the experience and expertise to extract and present any key data where attempts may have been made to delete or hide evidence.
We provide an immediate 24 hour response with our team of experts that consist of ex-military and law enforcement staff. All digital forensics investigations are conducted thoroughly, often concluding with expert evidence in court and in accordance with ACPO Guidelines.
CYFOR have experts who specialise in mobile phone forensics, computer forensics, cell site analysis & mapping, audio/ visual enhancements and intelligence led investigations. When dealing with criminal cases, we are in the position of having experience working for both the defence and prosecution. This gives us a useful perspective into the challenges and goals faced by each party and therefore how best to work in the interests of our clients.
Our experts have provided both overt and covert forensic investigations internationally including numerous fraud, bribery, terrorism, indecent images and drugs and murder cases to name but a few.
We pride ourselves on our commitment to service quality as evidenced by our Expert Witness accreditation’s, a strict adherence to the ACPO Guidelines and complete service excellence.
We understand the wider commercial implications of data collection, including the cost and disruption to a business. As such we also offer the collection of logical evidence files which allows the client to select which files or folders to preserve, instead of acquiring the entire drive or server. This method of data collection can reduce processing costs and minimise disruption to business continuity through live acquisition.

Our system ensures that conflict checks are always undertaken to ensure we never accept a defence case which we have been contacted by the prosecution to act upon, or vice versa.
