Key Qualification Questions to Ask a Computer Forensic Provider:

It is important to validate the qualifications of the forensic technician who will be performing the investigation. Critical questions to ask:

  1. Are they a licensed private investigator in the state in which they practice? Ask to see a “pocket card” or other official identification.
  2. Are they certified as a forensic examiner? This would include certification as an Encase Certified technician and other industry standard software platforms such as FTK and others.
  3. Can they provide references for others that they have provided similar services for? Can you call them and ask if the investigation was done in a timely manner and if a final report was provided. Since you may be using the work of your computer forensics examiner in court, it is important that you are dealing with a true expert witness. Remember, if you are not convinced that they are an expert, the jury or judge may reach a similar conclusion.
