Forensic Cyber Investigation

When any part of your computer system fails or malfunctions for any reason, it is essential to understand what caused it. Failures may come from internal or external malicious actions or simply human error. DIGIGUARD will investigate what transpired and what is required to get your system up and running again safely. Our cybersecurity experts will perform an analysis of items such as software defects, system performance, functional testing, physical and digital evidence and failure scope.

Cyber investigations sometimes involve uncovering evidence of illicit employee or competitor activity. Intellectual property in digital form, client and vendor data, trade secrets and other valuable data assets are frequent targets of departing or disgruntled employees and cybercriminals. Employees may have used company computers to download or upload explicit information or participate in illegal activity. Our consultants will look for and examine:
