Nowadays, hackers are growing more and more skilled, attacking not only major targets but also smaller businesses and individuals.


It is quite a shock to learn that your computer or mobile phone has been hacked as a user of a corporate, personal computer, or mobile device. This puts at risk your identity, banking information, private photos, sensitive data, and other information about you, your family, or your company that could be used to steal your identity or that of your company, harm your reputation and good credit rating, and steal your good name.

This implies that hackers can still reach you even if you are a small business without a sophisticated IT division.





To prevent things from getting worse, it's critical to understand how to determine if you have been hacked.


Examining digital devices having an operating system for hacking attempts, such as computers, smartphones, and other devices, is known as computer forensics. Experts at the M Private Investigations Forensics do a forensic examination of your device to look for any signs of hacking or breach, including rootkits, trojans, malware, and infected system files. We can then find the evidence, examine it, and provide our conclusions in a reliable, legally-compliant computer forensics report that complies with the law. When a computer is thought to have been hacked, we will use all of our knowledge and cutting-edge digital forensic techniques to track down and identify the hackers.


In addition to user identities, email addresses, GPS data, wired or wireless networks, and other information, the forensic findings may also contain the IP address of the computer or mobile device they utilised.


The location, the platforms used, and any pseudonyms or fake IDs they may have employed to obfuscate their activities are further pieces of information. For instance, a digital forensic expert may examine multiple sources, such as registry, event logs, and memory dumps on Microsoft Windows-based systems, among other things, to look for signs indicative of various hacking techniques used to infiltrate the client's computer system. The expert, in this case, will examine a variety of areas to find and identify plus examine the activity of any suspicious connections, malware, rootkits, or scripts.
