Preserving information and evidence

The biggest common mistake upon encountering any type of incident, from a physical crime scene through to a sophisticated cybercrime attack, is starting to deal with it too quickly. Whilst it's natural to want to stop the unwanted activity, help the injured or secure the premises as quickly as possible, unplanned action can result in evidence being destroyed, damaged or rendered useless.

In this section, we offer some advice on simple steps you can take to help investigators when they arrive.

If in doubt, it may be better to take no action - or call on the services of a specialist such as n-gate ltd. as quickly as possible.
