Social Media Investigations

Social media usage has risen exponentially over the past decade. With this increase comes the requirement to regulate, identify and in some areas, police the vast amounts of information generated from its usage.

Social Media Investigations

Social Media Investigations

Social media investigations involve the detailed analysis of an organisations or individual’s social media accounts. They are commonly used to provide information relevant to an investigation, court case, background checks or to establish an alibi.

When are they required?

Social media investigations can be critical in providing admissible evidence within civil and criminal matters. A growing need for such an exercise is internal investigations involving a current or former employee within an organisation. This can be due to the need to ascertain specific evidence in relation to potential fraudulant activity, data theft or misconduct.
