Forensic Technology

Electronic evidence plays a central role in decision making for businesses. The ability to capture and analyse that evidence is key.

This is why Corrs has launched a national, full service forensic technology team supported by a dedicated forensic laboratory.

Our Forensic Technology services

Corrs Forensics provides complementary services to clients including: 

  • IP Theft

  • Fraud and corporate crime

  • Litigation & investigations

  • Compliance

  • Data breaches

Data Analysis and Preservation

Our team can examine and forensically acquire the contents of servers, computers, mobile phones, storage devices, remote email accounts, cloud data, printers, GPS devices, CCTV systems and more. From these sources we can extract evidence of calls, contacts, SMS, chat applications, pictures, videos and other stored files, application data, web browsing history, network connectivity, GPS data and much more.

We can recover deleted data and files, establish timelines of file and user activity, reconstruct internet histories and internet searches, determine program usage and details of connected storage devices, identify the copying, amendment and deletion of files and emails, conduct memory analysis and more.

We also assist clients to preserve electronic evidence by creating forensically sound copies of electronic devices in a way that allows extraction and analysis at a later date if needed.

We do this to a standard that can be relied upon in court as evidence.

Analytics and reporting

Corrs has a market-leading reputation for litigation support technology. The Corrs Forensic Technology team has the ability to analyse data in sophisticated ways using state-of-the-art analytics technology.

We provide forensic reports that combine industry recognised forensic techniques and our team’s extensive forensic investigation experience.
