Your Information is Valuable
For many firms, the potential for Intellectual Property theft is enormous, and the exposure of trade secrets to a competitor can significantly impact the organization – potentially putting the company out of business. Sensitive information for your company could include customer and pricing lists, financial models, business plans, proprietary software, or pending patents and inventions.
- How important are your proprietary and confidential data to you?
- Does turnover leave you with little control over securing your information?
- Would your company be harmed if an employee stole important data?
Companies that proactively manage their risks are better able to respond to potential information threats.
Forensicon Can Help You Keep it Safe

- On an ongoing basis, forensically copy employees’ hard drives and other electronic equipment on site or in our Chicago laboratory before a problem arises
- Follow strict chain-of-custody and evidence archival protocols
