Stratford-upon-avon, United Kingdom (PressExposure) October 15, 2009 -- Lawyers from prestigious law firms across the UK have a chance to see for themselves how digital forensics and e-discovery can prove invaluable in legal cases.
CCL-Forensics, the UK's leading supplier of digital forensics services (which includes computer forensics and mobile phone forensics) to sectors including legal and corporate, will be exhibiting at the "Law Autumn 2009" exhibition at Birmingham's National Exhibition Centre from 14th to 15th October 2009.
More than 2,500 delegates (from such backgrounds as civil litigation, employment law and criminal law) will be able to find out how a targetted computer forensics or e-discovery process can help them find the crucial information they need for a successful case. This also includes mobile phone forensics - as many modern phones function as small computers.
Digital forensics is the process of investigating the usage history of a computer or a mobile phone. This can be used to investigate computer misuse which may, for example, form a crucial part of an intellectual property case where an employee is suspected of stealing computer-based sensitive data. This includes deleted data recovery, and the analysis of this deleted data.
As businesses move increasingly to paperless environments, the amount of electronically stored information (ESI) is rising dramatically. This includes emails, spreadsheets and documents which may need to be reviewed as part of a legal case. Delegates at the exhibition can see how digital forensics and e-discovery can simplify the process of document capture, processing and review in preparation for disclosure in court.
It is no longer necessary to rely on the cumbersome process of dealing with piles of paper - especially if it is simply a printout of reams of electronic data. Keeping the data in its native electronic form contains valuable metadata (electronic information about the document's provenance) and can be searched, viewed, redacted and marked as responsive at the click of a mouse. It can also easily be made available for review by multiple reviewers.
CCL-Forensics will be demonstrating how forensic data collection, followed by a managed e-discovery process can streamline this review process for lawyers.
Experienced staff will also be available at the event to discuss with lawyers how computer forensics and computer analysis can benefit the legal profession.
CCL-Forensics' Marketing Manager Andy Holmes says "This exhibition is a great opportunity for lawyers to find out how computer technology can not only make document review easier, but how digital forensics can pinpoint crucial electronic information.
We look forward to meeting lawyers from many of the firms we have supplied services to in the past, and to help in introducing the concept of digital forensics and e-discovery to a whole new audience"
CCL-Forensics will be exhibiting on stand 7 at the event.
