Digital Media Investigations can Identify the obscure digital evidence that’s crucial to your criminal defence case.

Digital Media Investigations


It’s commonplace for computers and mobile phones to be investigated by digital forensic experts, for use in criminal defence and prosecution cases. However, there is a range of more obscure investigative techniques that as a criminal solicitor, you may not be aware of.

The large quantities of data contained within social media profiles can often be vital to an investigation, whether it’s law enforcement, criminal defence or for an internal investigation within a business.

We can build a defence against the prosecution report, analyse and comment on the strategy logs generated by the prosecution and comment on the disclosure of evidence, which hasn’t yet been served.

  • Social media analysis (including posts, comments, messages, pictures, videos)
  • IP address identification and analysis
  • Router interrogation
  • Conduct Wi-Fi surveys and comment on the attribution of IP addresses
  • Mobile phone analysis
  • Open source research investigations
  • Critiquing the digital evidence served by the Police
  • Analysing and commenting on the strategy logs generated by the prosecution
  • Cell Site Analysis

Wi-Fi Surveys and Investigations

A more obscure aspect to digital forensics, Wi-Fi investigations can provide crucial digital evidence. The data that can be recovered during a Wi-Fi survey can attribute an individual to a specific location, in a similar fashion to cell site analysis but more concise. A Wi-Fi survey at a location can also test coverage areas and ascertain whether a connection could have been possible from outside an address where a router was located. Physical router analysis can be utilised to view logs which potentially confirm a device was attached to the network at a relevant time.

Open Source Investigation

Open source investigations can capture digital evidence from online sources, including detailed profiles of individuals, companies and websites. Our experts can document this information in a straight forward and jargon-free manner, ensuring concise reporting suitable for use in court.

If you have an investigation that requires any form of online analysis, CYFOR’s Digital Media Investigators have the expertise to assist.
