Incident Response Services
“What exactly are we looking for?”
On-Site Search & Seizure
One of your employees currently under investigation has agreed to allow you to visit his home to recover company property. There is also the possibility that company data has been copied and is being stored there. How will you recognise it and what steps should you follow to make sure that your actually recovering the data and items in question?
In another case a court has granted you a civil search order to recover items in a commercial dispute, but you're not entirely sure of what to expect when you get on site, nor what kind of data storage equipment and media you may encounter, in which case there's a chance that you may miss things.
We can assist by attending the site with you, providing advice about things to look for, as well as assisting in the search itself. When data is located, we have field kits allowing us to preview the data to ensure it is exactly what is being searched for. This keeps the search focused and proportional. It also reduces the chance for counter claims in the future that data not relevant to the search was taken.
Our team have assisted financial regulators and law enforcement agencies in the UK and overseas to conduct searches, seize exhibits and preview data on-site in an evidentially sound manner, and to support the execution of warrants for criminal and civil prosecutions. We are well placed to assist you with this very specialised service.
