Forensic Control – securing data since 2008

Forensic Control is a private limited computer forensic and cyber security company based off Fleet Street, in the City of London.

We were launched in 2008 by Jonathan Krause. He has worked in information security since 2000 and began his digital forensic career in 2004 at New Scotland Yard, working in the Metropolitan Police’s Hi-Tech Crime Unit. He went on to work as an independent forensic consultant before establishing Forensic Control. Since then, he and his team have advised on hundreds of data breach cases for corporate clients of all sizes. Read some of our reviews here.

Investigating the causes and impact of so many breaches means we’ve gained a deep understanding of where organisations need to focus to prevent such attacks. And we’ve seen how complicated advice, jargon and poor communication can act as a block which prevents firms from implementing the very controls that will keep them safe. We found a natural fit for this in the Cyber Essentials scheme, the UK’s leading cyber security certification, providing straightforward advice preventing the majority of everyday cyber attacks.

Since our launch, Forensic Control have been aware of how daunting cyber security can be to those who need it most. The best best cyber security is that which is both achievable and understandable. We regularly produce guides, such as a beginners guide to computer forensics, a simple guide to security for home workers and writing a simple cyber security plan.

We look forward to helping you keep your data safe.
