Digital Investigations

Private Investigator Toronto

Digital Investigation as well as computer detailing involves assessing the current state of a computer system, storage medium, or electronic document. This information is then used by computer forensic specialists to gather evidence that can be presented in court.

Digital Forensics and Computer Detailing

Our private investigators utilize the latest computer forensic techniques to examine computer systems and recover data in case of a hardware or software malfunction. This can help gather evidence for ongoing investigations into computer crime, theft of trade secrets, theft or destruction of intellectual property, and fraud. Our team of experienced investigators can successfully capture computer system data and recover deleted, encrypted, or damaged file information.

Handheld Device Analysis

The rise in mobile devices has led to a growing demand for mobile device analysis in digital forensics. As portable data storage devices become more prevalent, information can be stored and easily transferred between devices. This requires the recovery of information such as text messages (SMS), call history, contacts, photos, and videos from cell phones and other handheld digital devices to assist in investigations.

Smartphones’ Digital Investigation

Our digital forensic team is equipped with the skills and tools necessary to obtain data from handheld communication devices, including email, call logs, images, passwords, videos, documents, and text messages (SMS). We can also recreate deleted SMS messages and call logs from cell phones to save time and reduce costs. As the use of handheld devices continues to increase, they will increasingly serve as sources of evidence in criminal and civil investigations.

Data Recovery in Digital Investigation

Data recovery involves retrieving data from damaged, failed, or infected storage media. Our digital forensic investigators can recover data from a variety of storage media, including hard disk drives, CDs, DVDs, and other electronics. Additionally, our team can retrieve files that have been deleted and work with clients to determine the cause of the missing data and recover and restore the information.

Our investigators can also recover or reset passwords for operating systems, emails, instant messaging, and actual data from computer programs and mobile apps. This can provide access to protected content, recover forgotten passwords, and help prevent easily accessible passwords. In some cases, password recovery can be used to access digital evidence in accordance with a court order.

FAQ about Digital Investigations

Q1. How can you comply with privacy protection when conducting a Canada-wide investigation?

The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms protects people’s privacy. This means that no one can search or take someone’s things without a good reason. This is very important when collecting personal information or conducting surveillance on someone. People are usually safe from being spied on when they are in their homes, but not in public places. For example, if someone throws away their documents or materials to garbage, it’s not private anymore.
 

Q2. What types of challenges are commonly faced in Canada-wide investigations?

Admissible Evidence is the main challenge in Canada-wide investigation.

Should an investigation result in a court case, the investigator should be familiar with the Ontario Evidence Act and the federal Canada Evidence Act. These laws regulate the collection and use of evidence in a court of law.
 

Q3. What is the relevant Canadian Legislation pertaining to private investigation practice?

Major Canadian legislation for private investigators

First of all there are the Canadian Constitution, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the Canadian Criminal Code, the “Federal Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act” (PIPEDA), the Privacy Act, the “Provincial Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act” (FIPPA), the “Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act” (MFIPPA).

Other Relevant Legislation

Investigations may also be impacted by the Employment Standards Act, 2000, the Labour Relations Act, 1995, the Provincial Offences Act, and the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006.
 

Q4. Is it worth hiring a Private Investigator in GTA?

It can be difficult to gauge the cost of a private investigator because no case is the same. Very few cases are “typical”, therefore, making the cost of investigations wildly different. To ensure you’re getting the best deal, make sure you do your due diligence and research, and look into client reviews. Read More
