- Every user profile should be protected by a password that is not shared
- All network devices should have sufficient logging/auditing switched on
- Event logs should be backed up to secure location

What our clients say
In this post I discuss how computer forensics can assist when intellectual property (IP) theft is suspected. In my previous post on this topic, I looked at ways of reducing the likelihood of IP theft. But if the worst was to happen and IP theft did occur, how does computer forensics help you discover who did it, when and what happened to the data that was stolen?
We’re sometimes asked by home users if we can help when they think that their computer has been compromised. Unfortunately, we’re usually unable to assist in these cases as we specialise in services to law firms and other organisations rather than private individuals. We believe that there are cheaper, often free, ways for home users to manage computer security issues, rather than engaging a computer forensic company. It’s with this in mind that we’ve produced a downloadable guide: Computer security advice for home users. We also recommend the The Digital Trust, a not-for-profit organisation addressing digital abuse.
