Modern times present a technological challenge to preventing compromise from within since creating digital footprints is ostensibly just as easy as erasing them. An organizationís data assets are in the hands of its employees, one or more of whom will invariably turn out to be less than trustworthy and potentially wreak havoc. Examples include destroying valuable data, modifying data to the rogue employee's advantage, introducing malicious data in the form of malware payloads, etc. Most companies do not possess the technological knowledge to resolve this issue and, when it occurs, discover the source. The good news is that even well-covered tracks leave a trace, be they invisible to the common "observer." However, recovering those tracks requires expertise and tools that are beyond the means of most organizations to procure in-house in a cost-effective manner. This is due to the fact that forensic services are often not required on a continuous basis, rather in a more sporadic incident-based fashion. Forensic services are most often outsourced to companies like TDI. TDI has both the expertise and the technology required to recover the traces of malicious activity of even the most technologically savvy perpetrators. Depending on the case, TDI can even provide court-acceptable proof establishing the link between the perpetrator and the incident. This might allow an organization to successfully prosecute and hopefully recover some of the damages in terms of financial retribution against the felonious party.
