The investigation of fraud, corruption and a myriad of other digital crimes; particularly where the integrity of senior management and the company reputation could be called into question, requires a thorough, professional and independent approach.
All organisations are vulnerable to cyber abuse regardless of the business size, type, or market sector and therefore, need a trusted, reliable and competent digital investigation provider, to ensure that independence and thoroughness is without question. CCL have conducted over 80,000 digital forensic investigations for corporates, regulators and prosecution agencies since 2001.
Digital Data Investigations (DDI™) can often support these incidents, ranging from alleged employee fraud, through to professional negligence, such as, but not limited to:
|Asset Misappropriation||Commission Schemes||Ghost Employee’s|
|Fictitious Revenue||Purchasing Schemes||Cyber Bullying|
|Intellectual Property Theft||Inventory larceny||Expenses|
|Invoicing Kickbacks||Bribery||Bid Rigging|
Therefore, when an incident occurs, the sheer volume and diversity of digital devices, with the great demand for fast moving communications; results in the storage of structured and unstructured big data, requiring a regulated digital forensic supplier to determine:
The Severity Of the Incident
The Scope of the Damage
Who was involved
What devices were used
What evidence is required to act (discipline, tribunal, court proceedings)
When a DDI™ is required, it is often a complex investigation on one or many digital devices, such as: PCs, Macs, tablets, smartphones, servers, cloud storage, satnavs, CCTV and social media.
CCL’s digital investigation applies our unique technical and commercial knowledge of how data is created, transmitted, stored, retrieved and concealed across a variety of data sources and third party applications. We take you through the entire DDI™ process from: the cyber incident first response, investigation scoping, through to secure data acquisition and collaborative investigation, providing reporting and feedback.
Key DDI™ service process:
Scoping meeting to understand the nature of the investigation
Agreement to carry out a covert or overt investigation
Forensic data collection appropriate to the digital investigation
Forensic digital data analysis to the ISO17025* strict requirements
Full investigation using the findings of the analysis
A comprehensive report for decision of next steps
