James Baxter Kidnap and Ransom Consultant provides information on the use of forensics. When a complex crisis such as a kidnapping occurs a myriad of disciplines are required to ascertain accurately the actual facts of the situation during what are normally rapidly changing events. Only then can we craft the most effective strategies for a safe and secure resolution. It’s not all about security and negotiations, many specialist and technical support services are also involved and the use of expert forensics is often invaluable. Sensitive details of such activities need to remain confidential, but forensics are not just for crime scenes. Today’s digital forensics can be critical in the investigative role of such incidents, any prior surveillance, perpetrator profiling and several aspects of the contact, negotiation and resolution phase.
Blackstage Forensics Limited is a new leading edge expert in the provision of such services. Working out of the United Kingdom they support the legal profession, corporations and specialist organisations such as The Cavell Group with confidential forensic services. David Benford, Managing Director, explains that “handheld digital devices, such as cell phones, are quickly becoming more sophisticated and are a powerful and unparalleled source for information. They are the primary method of communication for criminal fraternities and can provide a wealth of intelligence. We are an independent company and assure complete confidentiality to our clients”.
He goes on to say “Blackstage Forensics Limited is proud to be working with such a professional and respected organisation as The Cavell Group, who we perceive as being at the cutting edge of a unique and specialist sector. Our professional digital forensic services add another dimension to the group’s strategies in assisting their clients and in the sophisticated gathering of intelligence and evidential matter”.
