A computer user profile is produced by following a systematic methodology that uses the best tools for each portion of an investigation.
One of the key obligations during eDiscovery is data preservation. Our team works with you to identify, preserve and securely store data that may need to be produced during litigation or pursuant to an investigation.
Whether performed onsite or remotely, Forensic Data Collection is the first step for defensible eDiscovery. XDD’s forensic experts are ACE, EnCE and CCE certified. XDD also maintains private investigator licenses in Texas, Michigan and California.
XDD applies a complete investigative forensic approach as opposed to a standard clinical electronic data analysis. We work with you and your team to identify and apply the necessary investigative techniques suitable to your case.
Contrary to popular belief, mobile device forensics includes more than just cell phones. As mobile device technology usage continues to expand exponentially, so must legal practitioners’ understanding and compliance with multiple types of mobile devices. XDD Forensic Services span a wide variety of mobile devices including cell phones, tablets, laptops and beyond.
Sometimes data needs to be recovered from damaged drives or restored after a disaster. XDD can provide a solution.
XDD’s seasoned forensic team often consults with trial teams regarding proper collection protocols and assists with complicated data preservation and collection matters. XDD frequently provides expert testimony throughout the country.
XDD has collected data for the purposes of litigation from several different countries, including those in the EU, UK, and Asia. This is done with our US based examiners, through our India office, or through partnerships when necessary. XDD is compliant with the updated Privacy Shield program, which replaced our previous compliance with the SafeHarbor Program. When XDD doesn’t have the proper and immediate privacy compliance or certification available, such as with Turkey’s new DPA, we will partner with a local provider and use a local counsel to put in place appropriate clauses to demonstrate our security and safe handling of private and personal data.
While XDD collects data from the EU and Asia on a regular basis, much of this has now shifted to our SaaS or remote tools. For many collections, especially non-criminal, collecting data via a remote application or cloud-deployed offering is defensible, compliant with the Privacy Shield framework, and tremendously more cost effective that have someone physically onsite.
