Corporate Forensic Investigations

Employee Misconduct Investigations

CYFOR understand the importance of protecting the integrity of your company data. Our digital forensic capabilities allow us to forensically recover, analyse and report on multiple forms of electronically stored information and identify any non-work-related activities.

Employee Misconduct Investigations

Employees are often found to misuse their work devices, including personal communications and media access, including pornographic and/or illegal content. Our advanced digital forensics capabilities allow us to forensically acquire data and identify any non-work-related activities, providing a report of findings suitable for use in legal proceedings should it be required.

Owing to our grounding in serious criminal matters, we are well-placed to document any pornographic activity and categorise this appropriately; including the grading of indecent images should it transpire that they are present on a device. We are also able to provide a stream-lined breakdown of internet activity logs, demonstrating whether pages are seemingly accessed manually by a user, or whether they are pop-ups or suggested pages.

Forensic Investigations

We have experience in facilitating a range of investigations, where there has been a misuse of data or even company data theft.

Our team of highly qualified digital forensic investigators use the latest technology and digital forensic techniques to discover any potential digital evidence. Subsequently, all investigations are supplemented with a detailed, court suitable report which if necessary, can be presented by our experienced Expert Witness trained specialists.

These cover multiple circumstances, which include;

  • Company data theft
