What can cyber criminals find out about your business?

In this blog, we highlight our Corporate Internet Investigation service and explain how it can help stop cyber attacks.



Burglars don't choose homes at random. Often, they will walk down a road looking for intruder alarms, open windows and unlocked gates.


Cyber criminals work in a similar way. When planning their next attack, they use various tools and techniques to identify the vulnerabilities of their target victim - whether that be an individual or a business.


The problem for many businesses (particularly SMEs with smaller IT budgets) is they are often oblivious to their cyber weak spots. As a result, they are unaware of how exposed their systems are.


This is why we have launched our Corporate Internet Investigation service.


Delivered by the UK's top university cyber talent, this service provides a comprehensive review of publicly available information about an organisation. Our investigators will reveal what is being said on the Internet about your business, what information employees are releasing or if there are any damaging news stories, social media posts or associations.

Information gained from this type of activity may also be used by cyber criminals during early preparation stages of a cyber attack. As such, this service will help you to understand if there is a poor online security posture that makes your organisation attractive to cyber criminals.
