The Crypsis Group: Creating a More Secure Digital World

Top 10 Digital Forensics Consulting/Services Companies - 2020

The IT world is continually evolving. In the last few years, we have witnessed a shift from PCs to mobile devices, in both number and usage. Content is also more distributed than ever, and forensics investigations will not only involve a single isolated piece of hardware, but rather a set of logical and physical entities, using a wide range of unceasingly changing technologies and devices.

Business activities such as financial transactions, file sharing, and data accumulation are moving online under cloud storage. With all its benefits such as providing centralized systems that made data accessible anytime and anywhere, the digital world also has its self-created problem— cybercrime. Every year, the cybercrime rate is increasing exponentially, and the scenario demands better crime detection and protection, to meet the increase in the number of Digital Forensic agencies. In the past two years, there were enough examples where highly reputed companies were hacked, all of which ultimately resulted in enormous losses.

The competition among Digital Forensic agencies to attract major business enterprises have increased, though strict regulations are set by the boards such as Scientific Working Group on Digital Evidence (SWGDE) and the National Institute of Justice (NIJ). Considering the competition in the Digital Forensics space, our panel of renowned CEOs, CIOs, VPs, with the Enterprise security magazine editorial panel has recognized the top drawers of 2020 in the field.

We present to you, “Top 10 Digital Forensics Consulting/Service Companies - 2020.”
