Forensic Technology

Drawing on extensive experience and using state-of-the-art tools, our expert Forensic Technology team assists their clients with regulatory and internal investigations, legal disputes and general IT investigations.

An organisation’s IT systems, networks and computers contain vast amounts of data. The Forensic Technology team at Begbies Traynor can turn this data into meaningful and useful information.

Some elements of this information are easily accessed, such as the large number of files often found on a central file server. Others, such as a person’s actions on an email system, are less visible and are therefore more difficult to obtain.
Consequently, sourcing information for a particular purpose poses a number of challenges, including ascertaining where it might be hidden, sifting through large amounts of data to find it, or in some cases, discovering if it even exists at all.

In many disputes and investigations, decision-makers are often challenged to find specific information to aid their cause. Whether it is to assess the merits of a matter, determine the extent of an allegation or to comply with legal or regulatory obligations, finding the necessary information can be one of the most challenging aspects of the process.

Our experts have considerable experience in both leading and performing a wide variety of such exercises, large or small, complex or simple. We are able to discover the information you will need to evaluate a situation, undertake an investigation, or respond to a request.
