From start to finish, our knowledgeable, discreet, and detail oriented staff goes above and beyond to manage your expectations, remain 100% confidential and update you daily as events unfold on your case.

We live in the age of the computer. A computer is essential to the workplace. A computer is how we interact socially. A computer is where we turn for entertainment.

And a computer is a sitting duck for criminals.

If you suspect that your computer has fallen victim to a security breach, the best place to turn is a private investigator with a background in computer forensics. At Nationwide Legal Investigations, we employ state-of-the-art techniques and software to locate and eliminate any cyber threat to you, your business, or your family. We also conduct vulnerability assessments to pinpoint areas in which your computer may fall prey to future cyber-attacks.

Cyber criminals are everywhere, and could well already be using malware, viruses, spyware and even hacking to acquire and misuse the information in your computer. All computes have security measures, firewalls and anti-virus software — and even a run-of-the-mill cyber criminal can get past all of them. Recent real-world experiments have shown that even seven-year-olds can hack into networks.

Computers are usually compromised without their owners’ knowing it – until it is too late.

Engaging a licensed private investigator to do your computer forensic work means you’re not just hiring someone who sits in a basement all day analyzing the contents of people’s computers. The actual work with the computer is only a part of the job. At Nationwide Legal Investigations we are equipped to follow up on on any threats we find, and conduct a real-world investigation into the people who are taking advantage of you in the digital one. Cybercrime can originate anywhere – the people who hacked your computer may be in Albania – but our international network of affiliates can help trace people in any corner of the world.

Locating a cyber criminal online can be an effective measure to halt his activity against you. Locating him in the real world is sometimes necessary…and the only foolproof way to stop their intrusions into your privacy and your business.
