Cyber & Computer Crimes
The frequent technological developments nowadays spawn new forms of criminality. The digital world has pervaded virtually every corner of our lives and cyber crime has been close to follow and develop abreast of the most advanced technologies.
These forms of criminality can be either crimes committed directly against the digital resource – information theft, database hacking, breaking into bank accounts, or they can be crimes committed through the use of a digital device – for example, pedophilia, impersonation, Facebook shaming or shaming on other social networks.
The science of forensics has developed in recent years far beyond the simple identification of the odd fingerprint and biological evidence. Nowadays Force Majeure’s cyber lab can detect computer and cellular criminality committed by hackers, sophisticated criminals, delinquent businesspeople and employees.
Experience, technology, knowledge
The experience, technology, and knowledge we have accrued over the years enable us to restore and track information, even when it has been tampered with or deleted deliberately from computers or mobile devices. In other words – even if the perpetrators have attempted to cover their tracks – we will be able to restore information. In most cases, we can turn back the wheel and trace the trail of a crime down to the level required in court. It is important to abstain from conducting independent investigative activities if the person doing so is not a computer crime expert – activities which may severely impair the admissibility of the evidence and might even implicate the organization’s personnel themselves in various forms of criminality.
