Digital Investigations

In many, if not most, investigations; electronic hardware such as cell phones, social media or computer systems are key areas of review for evidence. These systems provide huge amounts of data relevant to location, communication and behaviour.  

Datalab is not a Private Investigation Firm in the classical sense. We are a Computer Forensic Agency.  That means we undertake complex digital and cyber investigations. We are specialists who focus on delivering critical digital evidence to our clients who are looking to make informed decisions usually in a time sensitive environment. They need short, clear and easy to interpret answers to complex or sensitive problems. 

Critically, we are also independent to all parties involved and are bound to a code that serves the evidence first.

Cheating: You believe there may be cheating in your marriage or relationship and need to determine if this is true and who is involved.

“Massive thank you to the team for retrieving my files for me. Had such an easy experience for something that could have been a stressful time. Staff were calm and explained everything in a way that was easy to understand but not patronising (as you can find in the tech industry). Appreciate the courier drop service in Wellington and found your service easy to access with no wait time on the phone ! Thanks again!”
