Social Media Investigations by TCS Forensics

With the emergence and gaining popularity of social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, the amount of personal information people reveal gets bigger and bigger. This is important for one simple reason – you can find out more about a potential employee is you know where to look, and social media platforms are ripe with key information about people. This is why social media investigations are very important for every business.

We, at TCS Forensics, specialize in identifying key evidence and data relevant for a singular purpose. Depending on your demands and specific information you’re looking for, we can perform efficient screenings on people’s social profiles. We can conduct background checks and even gather information about a potential employee’s misconduct.

We can work together with business owners, human resources personnel and even individuals with a specific agenda. Our team can gather information based on any unique requirements and construct comprehensive profiles on individuals, companies, and organizations.

Untapped source of evidence

Social media platforms contain vast quantities of data, including information such as display photos that include location information with temporal and location-related data that can confirm or refute an individual’s location. You won’t only find the location but also relevant information that could tell you more about a person’s qualifications and predilections related to your company’s requirements.

Social media platforms might offer such a treasure trove of information but it’s not that easy to access. Most of that data comes in the form of cloud-based information that’s harder to access simply because the cloud is immaterial. Where in the actual world is the device that can access that cloud information is near impossible to find out.

That’s why we, at TCS Forensics, manage to follow the breadcrumbs and get legal access to the data you’re looking for. You won’t have any issues with the authorities because we operate fully within the scope of the law. Our methodology and work protocols are validated and used by even the FBI and RCMP.

Jurisdictional challenges & the way we deal with them

Since social media data is often found in the form of cloud information, geographical restrictions imposed by various national or international laws become important factors. In order to extract that information and still comply with the privacy laws of a particular jurisdiction, a detailed social media investigation is required.

The TCS Forensics team has come face to face with these jurisdictional challenges and come out on top every time. Clearly, we know everything there is to know social media, privacy laws, and the right algorithms to mine data using this source of information. We will absolutely ensure that no laws are broken during our investigation.

Even if we cannot access personal information using social media website, there’s still something else we can do. Using an OSINT investigation (online open-source intelligence investigation), we can screen other potential sources for the information you need. We have become very good at finding out about the things people don’t want to be found.
