e-Discovery Collection Services

For physical devices, GlobalSecurityIQ can provide forensically sound physical or logical images (exact copies), of laptops and desktop computers, external storage devices, and mobile devices.

Images are available in the following formats: .Ex01, .Lx01, .E01, .L01, .SMART, .AFF, RAW (.dd).

All images include cryptographic hashes of both the original media and the image, verifying they are identical copies and the acquisition was performed in a forensically sound and legally defensible manner.

GlobalSecurityIQ can identify, extract, and provide documents, files, folders, internet history, and other relevant artifacts from devices based on your scoping criteria (e.g., “all files created between 2016 and 2017 by Jane Doe”). All extracted files will be provided in native file formats.
