Digital Investigations

Digital Forensics, Cyber Security & Open Source Intelligence (OSINT)



You are on the CUTTING EDGE of technological investigations, so isn’t it time your note-taking tools were too?



Determine the Truth and Outsmart the Bad Guys

As an experienced investigator dealing with digital data, you understand that failing to find a key artifact can be just as important as finding a key piece of information. And you recognize that your initial understanding of a file may change as you dig deeper into the facts of the case.

Your job is to determine the truth and outsmart the bad guys who can often be technically advanced.

To do this you need to be able to keep detailed notes, that are easily accessible, searchable, and organized. You also need to be able to tag key artifacts that require further analysis later in the investigation.

Forensic Notes provides the solution to these needs; allowing you to quickly and properly analyze and evaluate the information you’ve gathered throughout your investigations.

Digital Investigations - Future is now!

Provide Expert Testimony

The courts can be an unfriendly place especially to ‘experts’ who must articulate and explain every aspect of their investigation. Often the opposing counsel’s plan will be to discredit you as an expert rather than attack the actual evidence of the case.

You don’t want your hard work discredited, and criminals getting away due to a technicality.  Nor do you, as an expert, want to be discredited as this will greatly affect your future in the field.

Forensic Notes follows a strict set of rules, and ensures that every note is Timestamped and Court-Ready. 

This means that you can never be accused of fabricating or changing prior notes to meet the outcome of your final report.

Private & Secure

When working on sensitive investigations, it’s vital that your information remains private and secure. 

Forensic Notes uses advanced security and encryption techniques offered by Microsoft Azure which has the most comprehensive compliance coverage of any hosting provider in the world.

Custom installations are also available for organizations that require it.

Microsoft is the first company to achieve the Department of Defense (DoD) ‘Level 5’ certification across its cloud platform, infrastructure, and productivity tools.


Microsoft Azure meets and exceeds a large number of compliance requirements - Forensic Notes is hosted on Azure for this reason.


You Need a Better Way to Document

Technology was created to make our lives easier, but investigations involving technology have created new complexities as we attempt to manage the large volumes of data which can quickly overwhelm us.

To solve this issue, you need a better way to document and manage large investigations. You must meet the requirements of the courts by being able to better understand and organize your investigations to ensure your final report contains non-biased and fact-based conclusions that consider all aspects of the investigation.

Forensic Notes is your answer!
