Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Forensics

For whatever length of time that there is blockchain, there will be digital money related wrongdoings that represent a genuine test to law enforcement agencies.

Bitcoin is the principal cryptographic money that strikes a chord when managing blockchain. The awful news is, blockchain related violations don’t finish with Bitcoin. There are bounty more cryptographic forms of money and approaches to utilize them illicitly. The uplifting news is, law authorization has dependably developed to illuminate even the most exceptional innovation violations, which implies that tackling digital currency wrongdoings is simply a question of time utilizing right arrangement of apparatuses and out of the box considering.

As indicated by INTERPOL, the Cryptocurrencies the primary Illicit Use of cryptographic forms of money and related wrongdoings are:

  • Bitcoin Scams
  • Illegal tax avoidance
  • Coercion and Blackmail
  • Speculation tricks
  • Dark web sites Scam Stores
  • Ransomware/Malware assaults
  • Pornography
  • Online Frauds
  • Counterfeit Identities
  • Medication/ Drug dealing
  • Grabbing
  • furthermore, the rundown goes on…

An ever-increasing number of controllers are stressing over offenders who are progressively utilizing digital forms of money for ill-conceived exercises like tax evasion, fear-based oppressor financing, and tax avoidance. The issue is noteworthy: despite the fact that the full size of abuse of virtual monetary forms is obscure, its reasonable worth has been answered to surpass EUR 7 billion around the world.

The fundamental difficulties are:

  • The challenge on the blockchain is to distinguish a client
  • No correct arrangement of devices
  • Extravagant courses and Limited scientific instruments accessible on this subject
  • Requires out of the crate considering
  • Untraceable nature of the virtual installments, which make it more troublesome for analytical journalists and law requirement to follow illegal tax avoidance
  • Cross outskirt jurisdiction

Exploring Cryptocurrency is troublesome because of its mysterious nature. Forensic analysis of various transactions, identifying links and similarities, profiling and narrow down crime using cryptocurrency, unmask and identify wallet provider, find the IP address, Explore Dark-net and Illegal Marketplace, search suspicious operations, Follow the transaction and money trail, and much more.

Forensic analysis of physical or digital wallets on-site (physical location) like finding evidence on mobile phones and laptops/desktops is beyond what we do. At Cyber-finance recovery, we can remotely investigate and conduct forensic analysis (using Internet Connection) of various real-life malicious cryptocurrency addresses and empowers to uncover the tracks.

Obviously, it’s impossible to drive all the criminals away from the Internet, but it is possible to come up with innovative ways to solve blockchain and cryptocurrency-related crimes.

    Computer Forensics (Digital Forensics and incidence response)For many but the most well-versed in the world of
    computer-based evidence, the terms ‘electronic discovery’ and ‘computer forensics’ may seem synonymous but in fact,
    they play very different roles and involve a very different level of expertise. Electronic discovery, usually shortened to ediscovery, is a term rooted in the American civil legal system and refers to the stage prior to a trial when a request is made
    by one party that the other hand over any and all archived electronic material that they hold in relation to the case. This
    will include emails, word processing documents, spreadsheets, and other data. Once handover has occurred, e-discovery
    involves the process of sifting through huge amounts of ‘raw’ data to remove duplicates (called ‘de-duping’) and useless
    information, in order to bring it together at a single location so that it can be searched electronically with ease by
    investigators or the lawyers representing that party.
    Sometimes, e-discovery is used to recover data from a damaged computer, but often it is used to investigate whether a
    company is compliant with the law in the way that it stores and handles data. For example, in 2006, Morgan Stanley was
    fined 15 million USD because it was found to have email archiving that was not in line with that required by law. In criminal
    cases, however, or indeed civil cases in which computer use or misuse is at the core of the activity in question, e-discovery
    may not be considered a satisfactory approach to evidence recovery, since it does not attempt to recover deleted or
    hidden data. Computer forensics, also known as digital forensics, on the other hand, is a much more specific discipline,
    which involves the analysis of computers and other electronic devices in order to produce legal evidence of a crime or
    unauthorized action. As such, computer forensic investigations often deal with the recovery of deliberately deleted or
    hidden evidence, or evidence of activity that leaves no obvious trace, such as the connection of a USB storage device to a
    PC. As such, while e-discovery is essentially a process of organizing data, computer forensics is a considerably more
    a complex process that involves highly technical procedures such as ‘data carving’: the act of looking for flags in unindexed, raw data which suggest the start and end of a block of data so that a single deleted file can be reassembled. Because computer forensics is concerned with producing court-admissible evidence, all investigations must follow a strict path that is fully audit-able in line with the guidelines of the Association for Chief Police Officers for the handling of computer-based evidence. If these guidelines are not properly adhered to, evidence could be thrown out of court. For this reason, computer forensics experts are often called to the stand to testify as to their findings and defend their methods under cross-examination. It is clear then, that the differences between e-discovery and computer forensics are considerable, not only in terms of remit but also in terms of the level of technical knowledge and skill required to successfully carry out an investigation. There is, of course, a place for both disciplines, but it is clear that e-discovery is rarely an appropriate tool for use in criminal rather than civil or legislative matters.
Mobile Phone Forensic

Our Mobile Phone Forensic Experts are able to conduct investigations of data present on handsets and SIM cards and memory
cards within them for any data present, including text messages, call records, voice recordings, photographs, and videos, often
even after they have been deleted.

Our mobile phone experts are then able to produce forensic evidence in a clear and concise format that is understandable
to the client and can be used in court proceedings if required.
Our experts are able to carry out forensic mobile phone examinations, including the recovery of deleted data on most
handsets.

The cases involving mobile phone evidence in which we are most frequently involved are:

  • Indecent and Extreme Images
  • Conspiracy to Pervert the Course of Justice
  • Family Care Proceedings

37 Million Mobile Phones are Currently in use in the US and the demand for mobile phone forensics has increased substantially.

Historically mobile phones were used just for communicating, however, they are now far more advanced and have functions
such as video and voice recording, taking photos, even emailing as well browsing the Internet and social media communication.
