"If it's on your computer, we will find it."
BIRMINGHAM, AL, September 21, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- You've been sending and receiving naughty text messages. You're not worried because you deleted them. You should be concerned.
Private investigators have been bombarded with requests from suspicious spouses wanting to retrieve "erased" data from their partner's cell phone or computer. Employers are hiring investigators because of company embezzlement, fraud and intellectual property theft. Judges and juries are hearing numerous cases involving child pornography, stalking, rape and murder in which cyber technology played a critical role.
A skilled forensic computer analyst can often find evidence or completely recover lost information, even if the data was intentionally deleted from a computer or cell phone. "Records are found in workstation computers, off-site computers, laptops, removable storage, electronic mail systems, network servers, cell phones and more," says Bill Birdyshaw, owner of Birdyshaw Private Investigation in Birmingham, Alabama.
Because of the growing demand for computer-related investigations, Birdyshaw created a new division within his company, 'Cell Phone Computer Data Recovery'. It is the first PI firm in Birmingham, Alabama to incorporate computer forensics. His partner, Carl Carpenter, is a 17 year law enforcement veteran specializing in forensics and is a certified expert witness for state and federal jurisdictions throughout the Southeast.
"As an expert witness, our goal is to make technical terms clear and logical so juries and judges can comprehend the information and the significance it holds," remarked Carpenter. This requires information to be authentic, reliably obtained and admissible in court. Computer forensics is vital to most criminal and civil proceedings and can make or break a case. Based on the evidence obtained, we can discover the perpetrator of computer-based crimes and even establish the guilt or innocence of an individual.
If it's on your computer, we will find it.
Carl Carpenter, Director of Forensics for Cell Phone Computer Data Recovery, has conducted forensic examinations and analysis on various forms of digital media, cellular phones and mobile devices. Carpenter has been involved in numerous federal investigations and is certified to testify as an expert witness in both state and federal courts throughout the Southeast.
