Internet Investigation (IIR)
The Internet has become an integral part of our lives and it has also become involved to some degree in almost all types of criminal and civil investigation. TCS forensic analysts have the capability to collect data from the Internet and assemble it into a coherent narrative that an investigator can easily understand it. Additionally, TCS Forensics utilizes a number of tools that allow access to the deep and dark web those steps well beyond simple “Google Intelligence.”
Past cases that TCS forensic analysts have examined included:
- Online slander – with the Internet being used as a seemingly anonymous forum many user attempts to slander other users without threat of reprisal. Using advanced analysis techniques TCS Forensics has the ability to identify many online posters and tie a digital identity to a real world identity.
- Online fraud investigations – many fraudsters utilize the Internet to perpetrate frauds such as fraud by false representation, 419 scams and identity theft amongst others. Tracking and identifying online scams is one of TCS Forensics specialties.
- Criminal community investigation – many criminal groups use cyber space as meeting place and online market place. TCS Forensics has the ability to observe these communities and collect actionable data on them.
