Word File Forensics

When 2 parties are of opposite opinion they sometimes see no other means than accusing each other of dishonest behaviour. This eventually leads to a court dispute or even long term hatred. Sometimes this dispute is based on a misunderstanding that escalated into unreasonable behaviour.

We want to help people find the truth and regain peace in their minds. Unfortunately some people go to the extend to try to disrupt the chain of custody by applying dirty tricks. Sometimes this can be via bribing, hacking, false accusations or even faking digital evidence.

Our certified forensics laboratory services can deal with a variety of digital evidence and digital devices. Our organisation also has local partners in a variety of countries around the world (e.g. Netherlands, UK, India, UAE, Bulgaria, Colombia, Panama, etc.), who can assist our special investigation team when certian work has to be done locally.

The core investigation is done by our european investigation that holds a multitude of internationally accepted certifications. We maintain the chain of custody inaccordance with ISO27035-27042, ISO17001, ISO9001 and national guidelines (BDSG).

Forensic Document Investigation:

When crime occurs people do not automatically think of falsifying all documents. They eventually start adapting word files to support their prefered view of events.

This manipulation of evidence is done with the intent to mislead a court or even a contract partner. Sometimes clients try to force suppliers to sack an employ because they claim that the employee was dishonest. This is often a method to divert attention as the client has himself been conducting fraudulent activities and has feared that this particular employee may report to his superior the findings.

Hence, fraudsters go to a sever extent to manipulate files or even hire hackers to damage evidence stored on a opponents computer network.

This is a global issue. ACATO's laboratory can deal with these cases as it uses state of the art tools and has developed its own set of forensic software. The local partners of ACATO can help the core investigation team when certain issues need local assistance.
