WYNYARD'S DIGITAL EVIDENCE INVESTIGATOR SOFTWARE HAS BEEN APPLIED TO:

 

International Corruption Inquiry

Wynyard’s Digital Evidence Investigator was used in an international corruption inquiry established to investigate suspected practices of misconduct. The sheer volume of devices and data meant the traditional approach for investigators to examine and process digital devices was quickly found to be unacceptable.

Investigators needed a way to rapidly examine every communication potentially relevant to the criminal proceedings. Wynyard’s Digital Evidence Investigator helped remove the backlog within the forensics unit that resulted from analysts being required to manually process each device, then make the data available and searchable by investigators familiar with a case and suspects.

Wynyard’s solution delivers investigators the ability to process forensic containers, convert and index files and present them to users via a web interface. The software’s simple layout means very little training is required and investigators can quickly use the comprehensive search functionality to locate, tag and bookmark relevant evidence and produce an evidential report. 

 

Homicide Investigations

Wynyard’s Digital Evidence Investigator was used by a major police force in a high profile homicide inquiry. Police seized a large number of digital devices including cell phones, laptop computers and mobile tablets from the victim and suspects. Analysts faced a significant challenge in processing the devices in a timely manner, and delivering the resulting data to investigators so that they could continue with their investigation.

Wynyard’s Digital Evidence Investigator supported investigators to work through data held on the devices, search internet and communications meta-data and history and determine who the victim had been in communications with. This allowed them to determine a motive and confirm the victim’s movements. The examination of these devices resulted in the investigating team arresting and prosecuting a prime suspect.
