Cernam provides expertise and custom solutions across three broad contexts:
We work with clients on a broad range of e-discovery matters but are particularly proud of our ability to quickly develop custom solutions to address challenging sources such as complex corporate systems, cloud services, personal data stores, social networking sites, collaboration systems and other online sources.
Our greatest strategic value is in helping corporate clients to establish and maintain a right-sized Information Risk Framework. This includes assessing and improving litigation readiness and addressing potential "blind spots" around digital evidence, as well as helping to measure and optimize an organization's "forensic footprint" allowing them to optimize their incident response capability.
Our team has a proven ability to parachute into the unknown and quickly uncover key evidence from complex systems and obscure sources. We routinely locate evidence that clients did not know they had and provide innovative solutions to challenges which others have been unable to solve.
Alongside our consulting services, Cernam also provides technology that embodies our many years of experience in addressing digital evidence stored in cloud services. In a nutshell, our aim is to bring forensic rigor to cloud computing.
Cloud Email Collector
Collect Evidence from Microsoft Office 365
Cloud Email Collector addresses a key limitation of Microsoft Office 365: the inability to easily and reliably collect email evidence.
Cloud Email Collector enables forensically-sound collection of email evidence from Office 365. It provides access to all areas of an Exchange Online mailbox, including Recoverable Items and other system folders which contain valuable evidence. Compared with simple "mailbox export" tools, Cloud Email Collector collects more data and produces a more accurate copy of all required mailboxes.
Identify Use of Cloud Services
Watson is an innovative cloud usage detection tool which highlights the use of cloud services on a corporate network.
Watson is particularly useful in the context of litigation or investigations where it can identify unofficial cloud usage, e.g. unsanctioned use of Dropbox or Google Docs by employees. Once an organization is aware that cloud services are in use, it can take steps to address them when collecting evidence, whereas otherwise these less obvious sources might be overlooked.
Our Cloud Email Collection product is built on "Capture & Preserve", a powerful platform which we developed for collecting evidence from a wide variety of cloud and online sources. This platform can be tailored to work with virtually any online source, e.g. social networks or corporate websites.
If your requirements around cloud or online evidence collection are not addressed above, please get in touch
