Intellectual property investigations

Protecting IP and commercially sensitive information is critical to successful business continuity. This information is highly valuable, and is therefore an attractive target for malicious actors. These actors could include former employees, other organisations, stakeholders of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) deals or cyber criminals. In today’s interconnected world, there is a plethora of ways in which information can be exfiltrated.

In circumstances where IP and commercially sensitive information is at risk or may have been taken, immediate action should be taken to preserve volatile electronic evidence.
