Computer forensics is both an art and a science.  The science uses sound and proven methods using hardware and software to acquire and examine data from a variety of products that store digital data.  Any device that can store electronic data is capable of being forensically examined.

The art is the forensic examiner's knowledge of how to use a variety of forensic hardware, software, interpret and verify results, produce meaningful reports and provide expert testimony that is easily understood by attorneys, judges and juries.

Anyone can purchase software and hardware "forensic tools". The quality of your results is determined by the experience of the examiner, the proper use of forensic hardware and software, and, in-depth knowledge of the type of data being examined.

UDF has the experience and knowledge to perform professional examinations. We use the same, primary equipment and software utilized by most Department of Justice agencies and follow procedures generally accepted in the computer forensics field regadless of the type of case you have.

We have processed hundreds of cases and are well equipped to perform examinations regardless of where you are located.

Cellular Tracking - The Facts

(Typical Cell Phone Tower & Antennas)

Even with your cell phone's GPS turned off you are being "watched" every time you make or receive a call, text message or use data such as browsing the Internet, sending and receive Email and any other "app" that uses cellular data.

Cellular phone companies keep track of your usage primarily for billing, however, there is additional data included in the information they collect. With this additional information we can show the geographical areas the phone was used including a timeline of usage and location.

Many other factors come into play. UDF is a leader in cell phone data mapping with wireless radio communications experience since 1996.
