Internet Investigation

Just how dangerous is your online footprint? Using minimal information we can employ the same techniques and tools used by hackers to help you discover what information you expose online. Our internet investigations offer an in depth report containing all publicly available information on either you, individuals in your company, or your company itself.

Individual Internet Investigation

This service provides a comprehensive review of an individual's on-line presence, associations and what personal or private information is available publicly. Social media, news posts, on-line forums and public records are all reviewed to create an individual’s internet profile and to understand any specific risks to, or threats from an individual. The information gathered in this type of investigation might be used to support pre-employment checks, to manage potential threats to a Director of an organisation or their families, or to understand more about a specific person of interest. The investigation is always tailored to the client brief where the detailed objectives, concerns and outcomes are captured and verified prior to the investigation. 

 

Service reporting includes a detailed report citing sources, links, associations and a comprehensive threat assessment based on the initial brief, as well as an explanation of how information might be used in an attack against, or any perceived threats from, the individual. 

Corporate Internet Investigation

This service is focussed on providing a comprehensive review of publicly available information about an organisation. This service may be used to learn what is being said on the internet about an organisation, what information employees are releasing or if there are any damaging news stories, social media posts or associations. Information gained from this type of activity may also be used by cyber-criminals during early preparation stages of a cyber-attack. It will also help you to understand if there is a poor on-line security posture making the organisation attractive to cyber criminals in much the same way as a burglar walks down a road looking for intruder alarms, open windows and unlocked gates. This service might also be used to undertake high level due diligence on another organisation, a supplier or a prospective partnership. Corporate Internet Investigation uses only publicly available information and internet search and social media tools. There is no interaction with any organisation or person, no intrusive measures or tools are employed, and no social engineering techniques are used. The investigation is always tailored to the client brief where the detailed objectives, concerns and outcomes are captured and verified prior to the investigation. 

 

Service reporting includes a detailed report citing sources, links, associations and a comprehensive threat assessment based on the initial brief, as well as an explanation of how information might be used in an attack against, or any perceived threats from the organisation.
