Corporate Forensic Investigations

Social Media Investigations

Social media usage has risen exponentially over the past decade and with it has come social media misconduct. Whether you’re an employer who needs to do background checks on a new employee’s social media accounts, or a criminal lawyer who needs information identifying on a mobile phone, CYFOR can assist.

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 Social Media Investigations required?

Social media investigations can be critical in providing admissible evidence within civil and criminal matters. Another growing requirement for these services is pre-employee screenings or internal investigations involving current or former employees within a business. This can be due to the need to ascertain specific evidence in relation to potentially fraudulent activity, data theft or gross misconduct.


What data can be recovered and analysed?

Using the latest sophisticated analytics software and open source intelligence gathering, CYFOR’s Intelligence Analysts can search, identify and monitor the following;

  • Social media posts
  • Photographs/pictures
  • Direct messages
  • Group Conversations
  • Message IP addresses
  • Data mapping & profiling
  • Brand reputation
  • Social media usage of staff during working hours
  • Investigation into what's available and known about potential new employees (background checks)
