Digital Forensics Are A Critical Component
Cyber security programs today are facing increased risks from new global threats and the evolution of cyber attack methods. Attackers are adopting new sophisticated tools, techniques and encryption methods to bypass security controls, evade monitoring tools, hide files on disk and cover their tracks to avoid detection.
These new risks have given rise to the science of Digital Forensics quickly becoming a critical component any mature Cyber Security Program. Highly skilled and trained Digital Forensic Analysts are required to collect, examine, analyze, correlate and report accurate findings. Expert analysis can help reduce the costs of incidents by identifying the root cause and providing solutions and remediation steps to prevent future incidents.
Digital Forensics is the science of recovering and investigating electronic data stored on digital devices. A Digital Forensic analysts require knowledge on how network intrusions occur, how various logs are created, what is electronic evidence, how electronic artifacts are forensically gathered, and the ability to analyze data to produce comprehensive reports.
Our Forensic Analysts are trained to gather digital evidence to assist our clients in eDiscovery, Computer Forensics, Cyber Incident Response, Threat Attribution and Expert Witnesses. We use industry leading tools and techniques to find, recover and reconstruct digital data.

Shawn Kasal is my go to resource for digital forensics. Whether it be a simple review of new technologies or a complex analysis of governmental surveillance techniques, Shawn Kasal has provided invaluable insight and skill. His services level the playing field and help protect my clients’ Constitutional Rights.Joe Howard
I worked a significant federal case with Mr. Kasal. He was able to use his expertise to evaluate literally hundreds of thousands of computer files that I would not have been able to evaluate in any other way. The prosecution threw us a few curve balls at the time of trial, and by using Mr. Kasal’s expertise we were able to effectively cross examination witnesses and refute surprise evidence. Because of Mr. Kasal we were able to give our client the most effective representation possible. I would hire Mr. Kasal again in a millisecond.Wesley Dodge
