 eForensic Investigations

A digital forensic investigation often identifies a large volume of suspect documents and emails, MD5’s eForensics approach combines our expertise in digital forensics, data analytics and electronic review tools so that our commercial clients can recover evidence from a mountain of data in significantly shorter timescales.


MD5’s eDisclosure service provides our clients with proportionate, defensible outcomes for everyday as well as complex commercial cases. Our experienced eDisclosure team helps our clients to meet the challenge of the increasing volumes of data stored in computers, mobile phones, and the Cloud.

We advise on cost-effective eDisclosure strategies to identify evidence with minimum disruption to the business. Our advanced data analytics software eliminates unnecessary data and identifies the relevant documents to considerably reduce the volume of documents going forward to review.

Reviewers with little experience of eDisclosure find our online review platform intuitive and easy to use. State of the art technology assisted review (TAR) and predictive coding technologies provide the power to deal with high volumes of documents.

VFC has become an essential tool in our forensic investigator's toolkit. It provides investigators an insight into the suspect's perspective by actually seeing the user's desktop, settings and user environment. Screen captures from the suspect's ‎environment add significant weight to the forensic report when describing how the suspect utilized the computer to facilitate the crime. VFC is truly a tool that I rely upon and use in all my computer investigations!
