DEI’s Occurrence and Serious Crime Investigation Database

OSCID™ is an innovative and multifunctional case management, intelligence, e-discovery and digital forensics database created by investigators for investigators. The many features of OSCID™ include real time note taking; task and exhibit management, case synopsis, case statistics; link analysis, full text searching, electronic disclosure, dispatching, ticketing and permits and much more. OSCID™ provides a powerful intelligence database, iSEP™, for those corporate or police agencies that would like to share intelligence while not sharing their full case details. iSEP™ can be implemented in a closed environment (known contributors) or an open environment (unknown contributors).

OSCID™ also makes electronic discovery faster and easier by giving the legal team the tools they require for managing large volumes of data.

Digital Forensics

We methodically acquire, authenticate, reconstruct and examine data from digital storage media using the latest hardware and software and analytical techniques to present digital evidence at judicial or quasi-judicial proceedings.

When gathering data from digital storage devices (watches, cellphones, laptops, hard drives, backup tapes and computer servers), we create a forensic copy to analyze while cataloguing and preserving the original evidence. We have the sophistication to manage design variances in cellphones and their incompatibility with operating systems – improper handling can easily cause complete data loss, especially during long-term storage.

Our technical, analytical, and investigative computer forensics expertise goes well beyond that of in-house IT professionals. We collaborate with your team to create a formidable presence for your litigation support, affidavits, and expert witness testimony, discussing matters in plain language without inflammatory statements, buzzwords or hype.
