The integrity of the digital evidence
Regardless of the type of case – civil, penal or criminal – the integrity of the electronic proof submitted to the court is a key requirement to ensure that it retains its legal value.
A document’s integrity is primarily based on the ability to verify that the information in it has not been altered, and that it has been maintained in its entirety. This is equally crucial for paper and digital documents. But preserving the integrity of digital documents poses special challenges: they are volatile, malleable, flexible, and easy to modify.
To ensure that a piece of digital evidence is admissible in court, Forensik’s IT forensics specialists collect, analyze and process each electronic document using precise scientific methods and processes that are recognized by the courts. As a result, our work, based on secure, reliable technology, allows us to demonstrate the uniqueness of a piece of digital proof at all times, copy it without altering it, and preserve it so as to protect the data in it.
Our team has worked with many Québec law firms on computer forensics cases, making it an ideal partner on your cases. We even offer training to members of the Barreau du Québec on best practices in this field.
