Why Should I Hire An Outside Digital Forensics Expert Instead Of Using Internal Resources?

Here are a few reasons clients hire outside computer forensic experts instead of using internal personnel:

  1. Digital forensics requires specialized expertise and software that often are unavailable in-house.
  2. Performing data collections without appropriate forensic software can alter or omit key data, exposing you to legal risk.
  3. Internal IT resources have vital roles in maintaining core institutional operations, and diverting such resources risks business disruption.
  4. The best computer forensics experts are able to communicate highly technical concepts in a manner easily understandable to finders of fact, which is not a core function for IT personnel.
  5. If something goes wrong, you have much stronger argument that you acted reasonably if you retained a reputable expert, and it will be much harder for the other side to argue the mistake in fact was deliberate.
  6. Your case is important, and you want the best people working on it.
