"So little pains do the vulgar take in the investigation of truth, accepting readily the first story that comes to hand." -Thucydides
We like to think of ourselves as being in the investigation business. The truth is, we're in the information business. It's our business to know what others don't. We accomplish that through meticulous and thorough exploitation of digital information. The art of investigation was born in Babylon in 1700 BC. Quite a lot has changed since then. Advancements resulting in our current 21st century technology coupled with the seemingly endless ways people have devised to hurt, steal, deprive, prey upon, and take advantage of other people leave all of us sometimes feeling nearly as helpless as ancient Babylonians must have felt before King Hammurabi handed down his Code. What's our code? It's simply ones and zeros.

With 23 years investigative experience, 3,349 hours of training, and being the founder of the Arkansas Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ARICAC), Hoyt Harness is one of the most well known names in cyber investigation and digital forensics in Arkansas. One of his investigations for the Arkansas State Police focused on a cold case involving the murder of an Arkansas police officer that occurred over 24 years prior. The investigation was successful in spite of having no eye witnesses, no DNA, and no murder weapon to work with. It netted a 30-year conviction of 1st Degree Murder upon conclusion. Hoyt and the original case agent from 1977 were featured on A&E’s “Cold Case Files: The Sting Operation”.
