Cyber Penetration Testing

This obviously has to be conducted in the context of existing threats and known vulnerabilities as well as up-to-date insight into how the cyber security field is growing and changing.
Hacking is a reality of online connectivity. In a marketplace where businesses are heavily dependent on online access to data as well as services to conduct business.
Online Fraud, supplier fraud, identity theft and corporate identity theft are on the rise in South Africa. Business hubs such as Cape Town, Pretoria and Johannesburg are awash with crime syndicates who have perfected the art of commercial identity theft.
Cellular Phone Analysis
With the advent of smart phones, investigators and attorneys have been faced with a new challenge. The knowledge that critical evidence exists and rests within that handset is a cause of frustration if one cannot access it in a forensically sound manner.
Hard Disk Drive Analysis
Data recovery and hard drive analysis have always been seen as two separate skillsets within the IT industry. Not anymore!
When there is the suspicion of fraud or malfeasance, it is often prudent to acquire a forensically sound image of a drive as a matter of urgency. This is often done as a precautionary measure when key members of staff leave the employ of the company.
Achieving a digital result is only part of the puzzle as any investigator or attorney would affirm. The ultimate requirement is for testimony that will stand up to scrutiny in a court of law.
Due Diligence Investigations
Trading in South Africa can be daunting for both local and offshore companies. With rising levels of fraud, tender rigging, fronting and other commercial crimes, it is imperative that a due diligence is conducted.
Our forensics team are able to provide static image enhancement as well as digital video enhancements. Please bear in mind that results are most often dependant on the quality of the original image and we will require the highest resolution output that you are able to deliver before we can assess what the enhancement potential will be.
