Document Analysis & Authentication

Do you want to see when a document was really created, and by whom? Have you received communication that you don’t think is genuine? Has a document been edited to someone’s advantage?

CYFOR's Forensic Document Analysis & Authentication service can determine the legitimacy of emails, messages, computer files and electronic documents. With the application of advanced digital forensic techniques and metadata analysis, we can decipher the digital evidence you require for legal proceedings.

Document Analysis & Authentication

CYFOR’s long-standing digital forensic expertise enables advanced document analysis techniques to be applied to various digital media and correspondence, including;

  • Computer Investigations – examination of computers, servers, tablets, hard drives, sat navs, removable media
  • Vendor invoices, emails, documents, files, messages, CCTV, photographs and audio analysis
  • Mobile Phone Examinations – recovering and analysing data stored on mobile devices, SIM cards, PDAs, and media attachments

Examining the digital evidence

Utilising our digital forensic capabilities, we can determine the legitimacy of emails, messages, photographs and various other electronic documents. This is achieved by examining the hash values or digital fingerprint and metadata of each file in question and providing detailed information such as:

  • The date it was last modified
  • The date it was last accessed
  • The source of the document
  • The author of the document
  • Creation date
