Why would you need a Computer Forensics and Computer Data Analysis Service in Northern Ireland? Our clients that use our Computer Forensic Services are business owners, employers, solicitors, wife’s and husbands (mostly divorce cases) We work with Solicitors in Northern Ireland and in the United Kingdom on behalf of their clients that need evidence collected and a written easy to understand witness expert report.  Most cases we worked on involved disgruntled employees deleting files on their work computer to hide illegally activity. Sometimes an employee tries to steal confidential company data and sell it to your competitor or was involved in other illegal activities. In one case we had to recover data from a lorry dashcam system that got damaged in a car accident and contained vital cctv evidence about the crash. Used in criminal cases, civil litigation, and employment proceedings, NicoGroup’s Computer forensics deals with the collection and analysis of computer related evidence, such as the investigation into deleted or hidden information on hard drives. This can include a computer system, hard disk or CD-ROM, an email message (OST or PST Files) or JPEG image, or a sequence of files moving over a

computer network. Our knowledgeable experts also have subsequent branches of study, such as firewall, network, database and mobile device forensics. During court cases our forensic experts may be called upon to analyse computer systems belonging to defendants (in criminal cases) or litigants (in civil cases). Other cases where our experts are paramount to proceedings are in the recovery of data in the event of a hardware or software failure; the analysis of computer systems after a break-in, for example, to determine how the attacker gained access and what the attacker did; to give evidence against an employee that an organisation may wish to terminate. Our experts at NicoGroup’s Forensics Data Recovery Service will typically recover the majority of lost or deleted information, even if that data was purposely destroyed or hidden. We go far beyond the typical recovery technique in order to bring our clients complete satisfaction in information retrieval, computer hardware analysis and computer data analysis.
