Lab design:

We have developed our own methodologies based on many years of experience with different clients and with multiple types of investigations.

We have developed a modular approach to the Forensic Laboratory Design. Our experience demonstrates that almost every customer needs a set of common Forensic equipment (what we call the Core Forensic Laboratory) and on top of that, a number of additional modules. Each of those modules will address a specific need by providing the adequate tools to do the job and not all clients will need the same modules (or at least not with the same components, as some of them will need Basic, Medium or Advanced configurations).Our methodology has strong emphasis on quality, thoroughness and reporting mechanisms

What is Electronic Discovery?

Electronic Discovery refers to investigations, criminal and civil cases where there is an exchange of information in an electronic format, which we usually refer to as Electronically Stored Information (ESI).

Increased reliance on ESI and the large use of email as the current standard of daily communication has exploded the volume of electronic information stored on digital media. These huge amounts of electronic evidence present significant challenges for businesses faced with disputes, regulatory and other investigations.

The nature of digital data makes it well suited for investigations – digital data can be electronically searched with ease whereas paper based data must be done manually.

The Electronic Discovery process

Electronic Information can be provided by the parties or can be part of a Digital Forensic Investigation; the process of Electronic Discovery is defined in the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM).

  • Management – the early assessment and management of the project from start to finish
  • Identification – the identification of relevant materials and media to be collected and processed using the Electronic Discovery platform
  • Preservation – to preserve any material that has been identified to ensure that no chances take place to keep the chain of custody
  • Collection – the gathering of ESI for use in the electronic discovery process
  • Processing – reducing the volume of ESI and converting it into the correct form
  • Review – the evaluation and assessment of the reduced ESI for matter relevance
  • Analysis – evaluating ESI for content and context and searching for patterns, topics of interest, key individuals and file content
  • Production – delivery of the ESI to others in the appropriate

  • Process & Analysis

Digital Forensics procedures can be segregated in four different phases like Incident Response, collection and preservation, analysis and results. Contego Solutions can assist clients with their data analysis requirements.

Overview of the Digital Forensics Process

Digital Forensics procedures can be segregated in four different phases in which different resources are needed. The first phase is the execution of an Incident Response procedure, followed by the collection and preservation of the evidence, then the analysis of information and finally, the presentation of the results.

Figure 1: Forensics Procedures

Incident Response

Incident Response is the actions performed, forensically talking, to react in front of any kind of incident or attempt. It is an organized approach to addressing and managing the aftermath of a security breach or attack (also known as an incident). The goal is to handle the situation in a way that allows the responders to identify if an incident has indeed occurred, limit the impact and reduce recovery time and costs.


Formally, the Acquisition can be defined as the process executed to collect and identify all information stored in the suspect computer systems (memory, processes, network connections, storage –hard drives, media cards, etc.-malware …). The acquisition process must be performed strictly following forensically sound procedures so that the investigator can prove at any given moment that not even a bit has been modified or lost during the process, ensuring the reliability, completeness and accuracy of all items. All the aforementioned procedures are verifiable and able to stand in a court of law if necessary.

Digital evidence can be collected from various sources. Obvious sources include computers, cell phones, digital cameras, hard drives, CD-ROM, USB memory devices, and so on. Non-obvious sources include settings of digital thermometers, black boxes inside automobiles, RFID tags, and web pages (which must be preserved as they are subject to change).

During a Forensics Investigation acquisition process, all the activities performed should be timed and thoroughly documented

Preservation and Custody of Evidence

Special measures should be taken when conducting a Forensic Investigation if it is desired for the results to be used in a court of law. One of the most important measures is to assure that the evidence has been accurately collected, preserved and kept under appropriate Custody, preserving the Chain of Custody from the scene of the crime to the investigator and ultimately to the Court.

Chain of custody refers to the chronological documentation, and/or paper trail, showing the acquisition, custody, control, transfer, analysis, and disposition of evidence, physical or electronic.


The Analysis phase of the Digital Forensic process addresses the extraction of the individual elements of information that may be of significant to the case. For this purpose, a myriad of specialized tools are used to discover information from different sources. There is no perfect tool for every kind of process, so in many investigations, numerous tools are used to analyze specific portions of information.

Typical Forensic Analysis includes a manual review of material on the media, reviewing the Windows registry for suspicious information, keyword searches for topics related to the incident, and extracting e-mail and images for review.


Once the analysis is complete, a report is generated. This report may be a written report, an oral testimony or any combination of the two. The aim of this phase is to present the evidence obtained in a form that is an accurate representation of the facts and that is understandable by the intended audience.
