Fraud and Financial Crimes
Asset misappropriation, accounting fraud, and bribery & corruption are the three major types of financial crimes that plague US companies -- and these crimes are the major reasons many corporations hire us to perform computer forensics and e-discovery investigations. In fact, studies show that businesses operating on a global scale can lose as much as 6% of their revenue due to fraud. Investigating allegations of fraud or financial misconduct as soon as they arise, then, is a near-necessity.
Atlantic Data Forensics conducts computer forensics and e-discovery investigations into all matters associated with money laundering, fraud, and financial crimes, and can bring evidence to the light that internal searches may not locate or recover. Our experts have worked with financial accountants, fraud investigation teams, and HR specialists to uncover the evidence of fraud on laptops, desktops, email servers, and within the databases of finance and accounting systems. If your company suspects occurrences of financial crime or fraud -- or there are allegations of financial irregularity -- our experienced team of professionals is ready to provide all of the latest technology and techniques to assist with a prompt investigation and resolution.
