What is Digital Forensics?
In today’s digital age, our lives are increasingly intertwined with our smartphones, laptops, cars, and even our homes. We generate and store vast amounts of data every day. This data can be a valuable asset, but it can also be a dangerous liability if it falls into the wrong hands through hacking or the use of spyware by criminals.
That’s where digital forensics comes in. Digital forensics is the science of recovering and analysing electronic data from digital devices, such as computers, smartphones, and storage media. It’s a critical tool for investigating cybercrime, fraud, and other illegal activities.
What is Data Recovery?
Data recovery is a subfield of digital forensics that focuses on retrieving lost or deleted data from digital devices. This can be data that was accidentally, or deliberately deleted, formatted, or corrupted.
Data recovery can be a complex and challenging process, but it’s essential for preserving evidence and protecting your interests. If you’ve lost important data, don’t try to recover it yourself with off-the-shelf software.
Common data recovery software can, simply during the process of installation on the recovery device, cause your deleted data to be permanently overwritten!
Instead, contact the qualified digital forensics professionals, at NSI Global who use the same restricted access forensic equipment as many law enforcement agencies to safely extract your deleted data without the chance of overwriting.
