Incident Investigation

Each incident investigation requires an individualized approach, although the goal is always the same: to identify the persons responsible and arraign them. As a result of incident investigation performed by our experts, you will receive:

  • The ability to seek compensation for damages. Compensating the damages is only possible when the perpetrator has been identified. The major aim of the incident investigation is to find the persons responsible, determine their location, and arraign them.
  • The restoration of justice and reputation. Identifying the perpetrators allows for bringing them to justice, and, consequently, restoring justice and reputation in the eyes of your partners and competitors.
  • Strengthening of your image. Bringing the perpetrators to justice makes your assets unattractive attack targets. Your partners will be certain that you are ready to protect their interests, as well as your own.
  • Reduction in the costs of conducting your own investigation. Incorrectly collected evidence, faulty preliminary findings, inadequate documentation, and improper contacting of law enforcement leads to increased costs and loss of valuable time. Engaging an independent team of professionals allows you to avoid critical errors which occur when conducting your own investigations.
  • Impartiality and reliability of the data. Unique methodologies, updated databases, and knowledge of the specifics of computer crime guarantee the speed, reliability, and comprehensiveness of the obtained data regarding the perpetrators. The involvement of the independent experts will provide you with impartiality of the data, even in cases involving the internal staff.
  • Properly executed documentation. The information collected during the course of the incident investigation is documented in accordance with the applicable laws, guaranteeing that the resulting evidentiary base will be reviewed and approved by the law enforcement and judiciary authorities.
