Intellectual Property (IP) Theft
CYFOR are experts in the retrieval of digital evidence relating to Intellectual Property (IP) Theft, including the unauthorised access and dissemination of company data and the specific communications encompassing this.
Intellectual property is often the distinguishable factor that helps a business to stand out amongst its competitors and is usually one of its most valuable assets, whether the data is trade secrets, a client database, confidential technical product information, or financial information. It can be critical to giving an organisation the competitive edge within its relevant market. If a competing organisation was to imitate a patented company design too closely or take possession of a companies’ IP, the damage could be tremendous. Intellectual property (IP) theft commonly occurs when an employee leaves a business to work for a rival, or to set up their own company.
