Greensboro, NC, July 01, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Many clients want to know what their spouse or partner has been up to? Do they delete text messages and other communication? How about a dishonest employee? Could an employee be disseminating your intellectual property? Sure there are programs out there that can be installed on devices, but it is illegal according to Title 18 of United States Federal Law to take such actions. Therefore, if a client is needing this evidence to protect themselves financially or to prove their infidelity in a court of law, this illegal intrusion will make the evidence inadmissible and the client could face wire tapping charges.
Victory Investigations is now providing this service to their clients. People that find themselves in situations like this have a need for this premium service because either a spouse/significant other is cheating or an employee is being untruthful. They've become more secretive when using their cell phone or computer and something doesn't feel quite right. Perhaps the suspected spouse placed a passcode on their device whereas before they've left it open for the client to look at. Now they carry it into the bathroom with them when they take a shower or they duck around the corner to answer a call. The truth is that these are all possible signs of infidelity. According to Spencer Kelly of Victory Investigations: "Lipstick on the collar used to be the #1 sign of infidelity...Today, it's odd and obsessive cell phone behavior." Committed partners have a right to whether their spouse or significant other are being faithful. Some folks would have you believe that looking at your partner's cell phone or computer activity is an invasion of their privacy. Victory Investigations contends that if a spouse has been with someone else, their expectation of privacy has been diminished. Why? Because they have potentially put the health and well-being of a client and the family in jeopardy. If it's a dishonest employee, then a client's livelihood could be at stake. How? Well, for starters, they could contract an STD and pass it along to their spouse. In addition, when a cheating spouse is seeing someone else, they typically spend jointly earned money on the paramour. This directly effects the financial situation of the home. Also, a relationship of this type puts undue strain on the marriage and adversely effects the children. This is why it is important for a client to know.
But how does a potential client go about getting the evidence they need legally? The answer is Digital Forensics. Digital Forensics is a process whereby a professional that has the equipment and the expertise can acquire logical and physical (deleted) data from electronic devices. It's legal because the examiner in not acquiring or intercepting live communication or communication in motion. Spyware or monitoring software does this exactly and can get people in a lot of trouble and can potentially jeopardize the entire case. Someone may be able to get the answers by using this software, but it will be no good in legal proceedings. In addition, most of the spyware available on the open market are difficult to install. None of them can be installed remotely. Victory Investigations have tested many of them. A "smart phone" (i.e. iPhone & Android) must be either "jailbroken" or "rooted" to allow these applications to be installed and work properly. This, in and of itself, is not always possible because the OS developers are constantly updating their firmware to prevent such applications from being installed. This is why iPhones and Androids are almost constantly sending out firmware updates. These updates are sent out to devices to patch these security flaws.
The obvious question is: "How can a client gain possession of a device for the amount of time it takes to have it examined?"
The only way a device can be examined is by a professional with the tools and knowledge to acquire and image of the device's memory. The professional must have physical possession of the device for a period of time to obtain the image. Digital Forensics cannot be done remotely on cell phone. On computers, it can be done remotely, sometimes, although it's not preferred.
