A local company in Franklin, Ohio is recovering critical data from cellphones and computers that can be critical to police investigations and court cases.
Jim Swauger and Jim Hawke were on the ground floor of computer forensics in 1997 when they were among the four original members of the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s Computer Crimes Unit for the Attorney General’s Office.
Now, the pair have combined their expertise as business partners at Binary Intelligence LLC, a private company Swauger began in 2000.
