Cloud Forensics

We began collecting evidence from web-based online, or “cloud” accounts, for clients like yours as a plan “B” for challenging litigation and investigations.  Often smart phones, tablets, and laptops are destroyed, damaged, lost, or encrypted with a forgotten password.  So backups of device data from the cloud, when forensically recovered, have the power to save your case.  Today cloud forensics plays an important role in litigation and investigations equal to data recovered from digital devices.  Therefore, Cloud evidence is rapidly becoming “best evidence” for civil and criminal cases like yours.

Cloud Forensic Collections

Carney Forensics uses world-class cloud forensics tools to collect digital evidence from private cloud accounts subscribed to by individuals, groups, or institutions.  We always obtain legal authorization conferred by a subpoena, court order, or party consent before undertaking cloud forensics collections.  These cloud forensics tools collect public evidence from social media accounts like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. They support your investigations with new facts and insights. By the way legal authority is unnecessary for public investigations.

Recover Cloud Evidence from ISPs, Storage Services, and Apps

Whatever digital online evidence your client or opposing party may possess or control in the cloud, we have the tools to collect it forensically.  For instance we recover cloud evidence from massive, global Internet Service Providers (ISPs) like Google, Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, and Samsung.  We forensically collect documents and other digital content from major cloud storage services from Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, and Box.  And we recover messages from cloud-based apps like WhatsApp, Snapchat, Hangouts, Slack, Skype, Telegram, Viber, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. Last, we recover multiplayer online gaming environments. In total we collect online evidence from 90 unique cloud services.

Google G-Suite and Microsoft Office 365

We support electronic discovery for civil litigators by collecting traditional document and email evidence from your client or opposing party.  Carney Forensics collects the most popular corporate cloud providers including Google’s G Suite, Microsoft’s Office 365 and SharePoint, and Box.  We also recover critical audit logs from G Suite and Office 365.  So audit logs verify when and by whom documents were created, modified, and downloaded.  This critical information often lays foundation for the cloud evidence upon which your case may turn in summary judgment motions and trials.
