- Digital Forensics & E-Discovery
In today's business landscape, technology plays an increasingly critical role in communications and storage of information. This digital data has become a fundamental source of information for detecting security breaches or gathering evidence to support both civil and criminal proceedings. However, it is important to note the significant differences between Digital Forensics and E-Discovery in capturing data during forensics.
Before any forensic analysis, SIP engages with the client to establish the case's circumstances, including a timeline of events, technical specifications, and identifiers relating to the device where the data is stored. Digital forensics involves a more in-depth analysis of the data, with the digital forensic specialist examining the data can be for many reasons, such as identifying spyware or other software that caused a security breach, locating hidden files, recovering deleted data, and determining if a user has used hard drive wiping software to conceal any wrongdoing, this is just to name a few.
On the other hand, E-Discovery can still involve examining a device, server, and other active data that may be readily available through file storage and program managers. Although in this case, the process concerning the data is threefold, identification, collecting, and preservation of the data. SIP forensic investigative specialists analyse the data to identify any wrongdoing or other activity applicable to the objective sought and then compile a comprehensive report to be presented as evidence in civil or criminal proceedings.
Regardless of the method used for data collection, SIP ensures that the data's integrity is maintained. Our specialists follow strict compliant protocols to ensure the data remains protected, transferring the data from the original source through imaging to ensure no changes have been made to the original files.

We can confidently recommend SIP as a solid and reliable service providers and experts in their field.
With such weight of evidence, the client we represented in this particular matter was able to secure a judgment of £20,000,000.00 and substantial associated benefits until payment and of course substantial cost. It is my belief and indeed that of the Head of Chamber who represented my client in the High Court, that without Mr Lodge’s SIP report and the expertise that he utilised, the judgment obtained, would not have been achieved.
Our client was extorted by a third party who threatened to publicly disclose information regarding the client’s private life. If that information – true or false -had become public, it would have seriously damaged the client’s reputation. After SIP successfully identified and traced the location of the person issuing the threats and identified an accomplice, we devised – together with Mr Lodge – the legal strategy to follow. SIP completed IT forensics on seized devices and this provided us with undisputed evidence which could support a conviction in the event of a criminal prosecution at a later date.
In all instance SIP services has been provided, it has been to a high professional standard and we have recommended their services to other companies within our sector. The organisation has an extremely competent administration team and we have been impressed by the work carried out by SIP and will continue to use Mr Lodge and the company services.
