CyberMaxx is ready to augment your internal DFIR team or act as the sole DFIR provider.
The science of electronic evidence gathering, preservation, and presentation – known as digital forensics helps the legal system by providing data that can be used in court. This data must be collected, stored, analyzed, and presented in an appropriate manner for it to be admissible as evidence.
This requires a combination of technical expertise, analytical skills, and a thorough understanding of legal and regulatory requirements – all of which the CyberMaxx team possesses.
