How Can A Private Investigator Improve My Online Corporate Security?

Internet-related crime is on the increase, and businesses can be at risk from a number of different online threats, including hacking, identity theft, and employee fraud. Technology moves quickly, and threats are evolving to keep pace, which is why it’s important to have good corporate online security in place, and to regularly review it.
Here are a number of risks that are faced by businesses in the online space:
  • Unauthorised access to sensitive business information.
  • Unauthorised access to customer information.
  • Computer viruses.
  • Spyware.
  • Corporate theft and fraud.
  • Corporate espionage.
If you have been a victim of internet-related crime, a private investigator can work to identify the perpetrator, gather evidence, and help you recoup your losses. In some cases, businesses turn to private investigators because police can’t devote the technological expertise or the resources to fully investigate a matter, or because there is insufficient evidence of a crime to commence an investigation.
Even if your business has not fallen victim to web-based crime, it is a good idea to take a proactive approach, and seek advice on what pre-emptive tactical security counter measures you can put in place to reduce your risk of becoming a victim. Businesses on the Gold Coast and beyond have benefited from engaging experts to help them with online security issues.
As a first step, a private investigator may help you by reviewing and advising you on your online security, and areas that might potentially be weaknesses. Threats to your online security might not only come from outside your business, but from within as well.
If you have suspicions that your employees are stealing from your business, or acting dishonestly, private investigators might be able to assist by installing monitoring software on your computers and tracking activity. This can be a useful tool to combat corporate theft, espionage, or unauthorised sharing of information.
The right counter measures can help you reduce the chance of becoming a victim of cyber crime, and help you to protect your customers from having their information revealed and potentially becoming victims themselves. Prevention is vital - while direct theft costs money once, the negative publicity that can arise when customer details are stolen from a business can cost so much more.
Corporate security affects your entire business, so it is important to take it seriously, and ensure that you have the best possible security measures in place.
