At Fields Associates, we specialise in the recovery of the digital “fingerprints” left by the routine use of computers. Even erased files can be recovered and examined, ensuring that you have all the evidence available to support your investigation.
Established in 1999, we have earned an impressive reputation in the detection, analysis and presentation of computer evidence in the broadest range of criminal activities. These include fraud, extortion, data theft, child pornography and Internet abuse.
Our clients include legal firms, international banks, blue chip companies, law enforcement and military organisations.
The online world can be a dangerous place. Last year a frightening 70% of UK businesses were hacked. Today, 7,671 more businesses* in the UK will have their computers used for illegal activities… And many of them won’t even know!
Why should someone want to hack YOU?
Your computer communicates with the outside world through one of 131,000 open doors or ‘ports’. Hackers randomly scour the Internet for unprotected ports using automatic programs that allow them to relay emails, spam potential customers, or even store unlawful images or pornography…
…And the consequences of this have included bankruptcy, identity theft, loss of reputation, loss of business and even imprisonment! Don’t be another victim.
How can I protect myself?
Fields remotely scans your systems for all known vulnerabilities and exploits and provides detailed reports to help you close any security holes. Holes that cyber-criminals can exploit to gain access or control of your systems and data, or monitor your activity via the Internet.
Firewalls and anti-virus are obviously a good start, but will not fully protect you if your systems have security holes and vulnerabilities. Scanning your systems regularly using our assessment service will tell you if you have security holes - and how to fix them.
