Digital forensic investigation at NFIR

Has your employee leaked business-sensitive information? Do you suspect theft of intellectual property? Would you like to know whether there is a data breach requiring notification? Do you think your company’s been hacked? Is your integrity at stake? Who’s the sender of the blackmail e-mail? These are all questions that NFIR can answer with its digital forensic investigation.

Crime has reached the digital domain in various ways in recent years. Nowadays, digital forensic investigation is an integral part of forensic investigation. Our Forensic Investigation consultants support your organisation in a professional and procedurally correct manner. If applicable, all findings of the investigation provided by NFIR can be used in (legal) proceedings.

Digital forensics?

Then you’ve come to the right place. NFIR specialises in the collection, identification and validation of digital information. Among other things, you can engage us for research relating to computers, servers, e-mail traffic, data carriers and websites. NFIR can find out for you whether conscious or unconscious actions have led to the consequences you experience. In order to realise this, NFIR deploys digital forensics.

Multidisciplinary forensic research

In digital investigations, traces and data are collected in a forensic way, which makes it possible to reconstruct what happened. The digital traces will be forensically secured and then analysed. The findings of the forensic investigation are incorporated in a clear report.

You can use our report if you want to go to court. If you want to report to another official body (such as the Data Protection Authority), you can also use this report. NFIR cooperates with tactical investigators, privacy lawyers, bailiffs and agencies such as the Police, the NCSC, the Public Prosecution Service and various international services.

NFIR as advisor for forensic investigation

Together with you, NFIR determines what falls within the scope of the investigation. The NFIR report also contains advice which you can apply after the investigation has been completed. This advice may be of a technical and organisational nature.

How does NFIR work?

Every digital forensic investigation starts with securing digital traces. This is very meticulous work and a prerequisite for forensic investigation. NFIR therefore only works with internationally approved hardware and software. Technical specialists secure traces on digital data carriers (such as hard discs, flash memory and USB sticks) and make a forensic copy, which will be examined.

The digital forensic investigator starts an extensive investigation into digital traces on the produced copy and identifies all relevant information. They also find digital traces that have been removed by the user, for example. Ultimately, NFIR translates digital traces into accepted evidence.

NFIR has POB licence 1672 and is under the supervision of the Ministry of Justice and Security.
