  • Departing Employee Package. Helping businesses determine if a departing employee(s) destroyed, obtained, or currently possesses intellectual and proprietary company property, or has violated a non-compete/confidentiality agreement.
  • Employee Misconduct Package. Providing time-sensitive results to the scholastic, public and private sectors regarding an employee’s social media, mobile messaging, and email activities when an event triggers potential liability and/or attracts media attention.
  • Mobile Device Package. Offering clients a forensic examination of mobile devices including retrieving data such as mobile messaging, call logs, and images. This can help us determine if further investigation will be necessary.

Computer Forensics Services

Precise offers a full suite of digital forensics services. Descriptions of some of our conventional services are listed below.

Social Media Investigations

Precise will manage a forensic collection of case-relevant data residing throughout major social media networks. Our team will identify, preserve, search, and produce social media data while keeping important metadata intact to increase admissibility.

Forensic Imaging

Precise can perform a byte-level, hash-verified acquisition of all data and information on a digital device. All information, such as operating system files, deleted data, and metadata, is preserved in its original format. Forensic imaging provides the best possible manner of preserving evidence and minimizes the time disruption to the client in the collection process.

Targeted Collections

Precise’s analysts can specifically target certain areas of a mobile device, computer, laptop, server, or network to be forensically imaged. Similar to a full forensic image, all metadata and system data may be preserved. This is particularly useful in situations where the data sources are extremely large or where highly sensitive (but non-relevant) data also exists on the device.

Remote Collections

Particularly useful when client devices are geographically dispersed, computer forensic tools are securely executed on the remote machine to specifically target digital information or forensically image an entire hard drive. When performing a remote collection, data can be culled and filtered prior to making any forensic data acquisitions.

Data Culling

Precise’s computer forensic software can filter, cull and sort data based on criteria such as filename, filename extension, file header and footer, MD5 or other hash value, type of file, file size, creation date and time, last accessed date and time, deleted date and time, last edited date and time or date the filename was last edited.

Deleted Data Recovery

Precise can retrieve data from the unallocated (unused) areas of a computer hard drive long after deletion. In some cases, data that has been deleted for years can be retrieved. Some items that may be recoverable include filename, content of the data, images, and metadata. Hard drives that have been formatted can be reconstituted to their original format.

Digital Device Analysis

Precise can forensically analyze devices such as personal computers, servers, social networking sites, Internet locations, and smart phones. We can retrieve and interpret information and artifacts from these sources and digital storage mediums and devices providing contextual and practical meaning to the data.

Expert Witness Testimony

Precise’s forensic analysts have been recognized as experts in both federal and state jurisdictions. They can prepare expert reports and author affidavits, declarations and oral reports. Should the case go to trial, our forensic analysts can provide expert testimony in court or through deposition as well as prepare and deliver quality technical presentations.

Why hire a forensic examiner to preserve data?

Our forensics examiner, Jeffrey Stiegler, explains the value that forensics expertise can bring toward a sound case strategy.

My company has worked with the Precise companies many times over the years. We’ve found their expertise to be second to none. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend using Precise for your forensics, discovery or trial needs. I’ll continue to use them whenever the opportunity allows.

What Our Clients Have To Say

The Precise companies, with primary offices in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, PA, serve clients accross the country.

The mediation video prepared by Precise, including the witness interviews it conducted, was the most effective format I have used for presenting a complex case to a mediator. Additionally, the feedback I received from the Predict report was essential in not only valuing my case and quantifying some known strengths and weaknesses but also revealing some issues that would be important to jurors at trial that were not previously on my radar. I highly recommend both services.
