Insolvency Practitioners deal with the final stage of the life circle of a business. To achieve their end, they must go through a mountain of documents, financial records and any other piece of evidence that portraits an accurate snapshot of the business at that point in time. To achieve this, one needs access to all relevant information.
But today, with businesses relying on electronic information storage, it is easy to destroy evidence of debts or wrongdoing. It is very easy to delete documents, emails, spreadsheets or even back-up files from accounting and business software like SAGE.
The solution for the modern day Insolvency Practitioner is the services of a digital forensics consultant. The seized PCs, laptops, mobile phones, CD/DVD and floppy disks, the USB keys and USB external drives are all pieces of electronic evidence, that together will complete the jigsaw.
But are you ready to handle electronic evidence? Are your staff qualified to access information without altering ANYTHING on a hard disk? Did you know that switching on a computer is altering it in the eyes of the law? This may bring a dispute of any evidence you recovered thereafter and a question of the integrity of your work.
