Business Email Compromise

The business email compromise is one of the most common engagements. This typically starts with a company being notified by an outside contact that they are receiving phishing emails or emails containing malicious documents. It is critical to act quickly and responsibly to respond to an incident like this in order to determine the scope and limit any potential damage.

In many cases, attackers enact rules in a user's inbox that allows them to communicate with a contact without being detected. Often, the goal is to convince an unsuspecting contact to send a wire transfer to the attackers account.

Common Case Scenarios

  • Intellectual Property Theft
    An employee or executive leaves an employer to start a new company or work for a competitor. The previous employer ends up in a legal dispute because the employee took with him client contacts, confidential trade secrets and intellectual property, or left a backdoor for remote access to the network at a later time. We can help determine how the employee acted prior to leaving the company or at the onset of litigation.
  • Child Pornography Charges (Peer-to-Peer))
    Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task forces around the country identify and arrest potential traders of child pornography on a regular basis. We can review the Government's findings and conduct an independent examination of the digital evidence in order to determine the circumstances surrounding the charged files.
  • Divorce
    Forensic Recovery can assist counsel in helping to identify, preserve and analyze digital evidence in family litigation. Often, our work is related to location data, communications, and hidden asset leads. Working through counsel on these matters is the preferred mechanism.
