In seeking the truth we are both philosophers and scientists
the scientist wants to know how, while the philosopher wants to know why
DFIRLABS is a privately-owned, independent digital forensics, computer security incident response, and electronic discovery laboratory in South Africa. We specialise in the fields of digital and multimedia evidence - more commonly known as digital forensics. We focus on the identification of relevant digital evidence; the forensic preservation of the digital evidence; and the scientific examination, analysis, and interpretation of the evidence to establish the facts.
At DFIRLABS we have extensive experience in the entire forensic investigation, computer security incident response, and legal process chains. We understand the needs of forensic investigators for evidence and information to advance their investigations and solve cases. We understand the needs of organisations to identify the root cause of computer security incidents and to mitigate the risks. We understand the needs of lawyers and prosecutors for reliable scientific evidence to establish legal facts in court. We understand the needs of presiding officers in court or administrative hearings for accurate evidence to base their decisions on. Our experience and knowledge allows us to find answers to the right questions.
