Project Faucet

Issue:

A public authority in the Cayman Islands suffered from an unauthorised information leak. An internal thread of emails was leaked into the public domain and subsequently published in the media.

The authority anticipated that relevant electronic data evidencing the unauthorised leak would be found on the workstations and/or cell phones of the six employees that were copied on the original thread, as well as on the email servers/backups.

Resolution:

KRyS Global was engaged by the public entity to perform a forensic review of the relevant laptops and the server.

KRyS Global took forensic copies, using its “Ferret” technology, of the relevant workstations, cell phones and email servers/backups to ensure that all relevant data, including the relevant inboxes, was preserved. KRyS Global carried out a deleted file recovery analysis on all digital evidence and performed a detailed forensic analysis and search to uncover the relevant email(s).

Value Added:

KRyS Global established that the system used by the public entity included a complex network of servers. As a result of its careful preparation and expertise, KRyS Global was able to take forensic images without delay.

KRyS Global provided timely reporting to the client on its progress and ensured the investigation remained strictly confidential. KRyS Global’s “Ferret” technology tools meet the strictest security requirements.

The authority expressed its pleasure with the outcome of the investigation and was satisfied that the review delivered the message to all employees that any further breach of data policy would be taken seriously and not tolerated.
