Audited for Data Security

During the forensics process we take data security and chain of custody seriously. To keep up with the ever evolving data security landscape, Secure Forensics is consistently audited and improving our data security protocols.

SSAE 18 SOC Computer Forensics

The Only Forensics Firm to be SSAE 18 Type II SOC 1, 2 & 3 Certified

Secure Forensics, the industry leader in providing data recovery, computer forensics, digital forensics and mobile forensics services regularly has audits on our data security protocols by a third party to make sure they are up to date on the SSAE 18 standards.

SSAE 18 certifications provide our clients assurances that our company performs forensic tasks meeting or exceeding industry standards governing how the systems (such as in the offices and labs) our employees use to gather and analyze extracted information include the appropriate safeguards in accordance with Service Organizational Control (SOC) security protocols. SSAE certifications also mandate that our company’s management teams continually review, report on and oversee such controls.

Adhering to such strict mandates is crucial to any forensics firm ability to maintain a strict chain of custody. These entities retrieve, analyze and store important information that, if altered, damaged or obtained by unauthorized individuals, could result in devastating consequences for law enforcement and/or legal teams.

We have compiled several comprehensive reports regarding the SSAE findings describing our security controls and detailing every step of the evaluation process and have made it fully available on our website. Secure Forensics is the only forensics company in the United States to provide our clients access to these documents. In addition, these reports are not merely our words, but those of the independent auditors who conduct SSAE reviews, whose findings and opinions are entered into the record.

Importance of SSAE 18 Certifications in Digital Forensics

The data retrieved and analyzed in the process of a digital forensics, computer forensics or mobile device forensics investigation could be used as evidence for any legal proceeding or case, whether criminal or civil. Should any other safety protocols but the most stringent security safeguards be utilized, all concerned parties run the risk of having this sensitive data be changed, damaged, deleted or end up in the hands of someone who does possess the legal authority to obtain it. The SSAE 18 Audit and subsequent Certification ensures that we have extra security protocols in place to ensure that such occurrences do not happen, and further solidifies chain of custody for all evidence and reports involved.

Secure Forensics adheres to these SSAE 18 protocols for all services, including:

    • Computer Forensics
    • Mobile Forensics
    • Digital Forensics
    • Audio & Video Forensics
    • Data Recovery
    • Legal Forensics
