Why us?

NicoGroup’s Data Recovery owner and chief technology officer is going to provide you with digital forensic services in Northern Ireland that acquire, search, analyse, store and share digital evidence found inside computer and mobile devices, RAM and cloud. Our own toolkit solution will quickly extract digital evidence from multiple sources by analysing hard drives, forensic drive images, cloud, memory dumps, iOS, Blackberry and Android backups, GrayKey, UFED, OFB, Elcomsoft, JTAG and chip-off dumps into easy to understand reports. Our service is completely confidential and Nico the owner will explain each step of the process in a clear and easy to understand way.

Who would use our services?

We work mostly for solicitors and business owners in Northern Ireland, providing a service that helps them to take their cases further. It is not uncommon nowadays that disgruntled employees could steal your business data, and might even offer it to a competitor of yours. Only we can provide the solid evidence required to take legal action, by way of forensic data recovery to prove any wrongdoing. 

How much does our service cost?

It is very difficult to estimate the cost for such a report as it depends on how much data you would need to be recovered, and if you plan to use it in court at a later stage. But as an example, to recover an employee’s browsing history that has been deleted, or browsing that has been completed in private mode, you can expect at least 2 days’ work for the analysis and report.  This will cost approximately £500 + VAT.
