How We Help

Computer Forensic Analysis

International cyber-crime is now at an all-time high, with underground suppliers on the dark web offering easy access to the tools, programming frameworks, and services required to carry out cyber-attacks.

Time is of the essence in these matters. If a cyber attack is not prevented, then the race is on to determine what occurred and how to stop it. When an cyber incident has occurred, it is important to take action to ascertain the extent of such a breach. We have helped our clients determine the type and nature of the incident as well as the scope of individuals impacted, saving our clients the need to publicly broadcast what turned out to be an isolated and limited event.

Great Lakes Forensics offer our clients a sophisticated portfolio of discovery consulting, electronically stored data (ESI) forensics preservation, forensic analysis and investigations to help you identify the attackers, the attack vector, and how the attack can be mitigated or stopped.

Furthermore, Great Lakes Forensics provides litigation support services, helping you with the prompt collection of high-quality, reliable evidence of computer usage for pre-trial discovery, settlement negotiations, and court proceedings.
