A financial institution had dismissed a senior managing director due to performance issues. The dismissed employee began legal proceedings against his former employer, claiming unfair dismissal. Forensic Control was asked to look at their work computer and USB drives. We discovered thousands of pornographic images that had been downloaded to his work laptop and then transferred to personal USB drives. Time-line analysis revealed that the searching and downloading of the images was carried out during office hours. We also found evidence of the subject using the laptop to order illegal items. The report we produced for our client provided the evidence to reject the claim of unfair dismissal.
We understand that organisations who need this service often do so in times of great pressure and stress. Our staff are trained to help you in a discreet and empathic manner, enabling you to make informed decisions in times of crisis.
Although Forensic Control are very technical and thorough in our analysis of data, when we deal with clients we know that they are rarely computer experts. We are able to discuss client issues patiently without resorting to jargon and our reports are written in plain English.
“Forensic Control provided us with invaluable help in dealing with a complex investigation relating to a contested breach of contract matter. The response to our request for independent expert advice was professional, discrete and swift: our needs and the highly sensitive situation we faced were quickly grasped and, most importantly, the report on the IT data analysis was provided in an accessible, readily understood format. A superb service.”

Following what could have been a real business disaster when both our server and back up disk became corrupted we potentially faced losing all our client files. Jonathan calmly and efficiently got us back up and running within 24 hours. We can wholeheartedly recommend Forensic Control for their true professionalism and in our case, calmness in a storm!”
