More than ever individual and small businesses are finding themselves dealing with situations where someone has hacked into their computer or smart phones to stalk, harass, steal information or intimidate the individual or small business owner.
According to recent studies there were more than over 700,000 malicious website discovered last year that had some form of an Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) associated with the website that could give someone access or control of your computer. When you couple that with over 60,000 new malwares discovered each day, the ability to hack into someones computer has become as easy as buying a simple kit that even someone that doesn’t understand computers very well could use to gain access to your computer.
What Do You Do When You’ve Been Hacked?
At Cyber Investigation Services we specialize in catching hackers through advanced cyber investigative tools and specialized intelligence that allows us to zero in on whether or not you have been hacked, how you’ve been hacked, and who is behind the attacks against you or your business. In addition we can help you secure your computer or network environment to help keep you safe against current and future attacks.
STEP 1: When you think you have become a victim of a hacking incident, the first step we take is to determine if when and how your computer has been hacked.
STEP 2: We will determine if there is an Advanced Persistent Threat, Listener, Back Door, Keylogger or malware installed on your system that is capable of “phoning home” to an external IP Address and stealing your information.
STEP 3: We will run a comprehensive Live Memory Analysis on your computer which helps to disclose malicious programs running in the background that do not show up on your hard drive.
STEP 4: Through advanced Intrusion Forensics methods, Cyber Investigation Services seeks to obtain the identity and IP addresses of the person(s)/group(s) involved. That forensic evidence can then be used by law enforcement or an attorney to issue subpoena’s to further identify who has hacked your computer or system. While advanced hackers can sometimes erase their tracks, more often than not they leave “electronic fingerprints” behind.
STEP 5: If Cyber Investigation Services determines that there is a high likelihood of discovering who and where the attacks are coming from we will advise you of additional steps that can we can take to trace every move the hacker made through your computer, as well as help implement proprietary legal “wiretaps” typically used by law enforcement to establish traps to catch the hackers.
STEP 6: If it is determined that you have been hacked and there is enough evidence to lead us to a suspect, we will then prepare a “forensic affidavit report” that you can then take to law enforcement or an attorney to assist you in further pursuing your case.
