Austin, TX (PRWEB) May 27, 2014
McCann Investigations, a Texas-based firm that provides high-quality private investigations and digital security services, announced that it conducts detailed background analyses in Austin to help find evidence needed to aid in intellectual property theft investigations.
Intellectual property theft is a term that refers to the stealing of any type of property to which a person can claim intellectual ownership. Examples would include recipes, copyrights, blueprints, manuscripts, ideas, trademarks, brand symbols and more. As their first step in these types of cases, McCann's Austin investigators analyze the background of the investigation target to find information that sets up the rest of the investigation.
"Many intellectual property theft cases hinge on the evidence that we uncover in the first phases of an investigation," said Daniel Weiss, Managing Partner at McCann Investigations. "The process that we use as an agency, starting with these background checks, has given us a lot of success in the Austin market."
The first step in the investigation is to meet with the client to talk about the issue at hand, as well as any information that is available about the suspected perpetrator. From there, McCann's Austin investigators go on to look at the target's criminal record, as well as employment history, assets and more. This helps to get a general profile of the target they're looking at, and could uncover evidence that helps to set up the rest of the investigation.
The next step is to conduct digital forensics analysis of mobile devices, computers, and more to find evidence left behind in the target's digital footprint.
"Our investigators have been rigorously trained in the area of intellectual property theft investigations," said Weiss. "We are pleased to assist our clients in the Austin area when they believe they have had their intellectual property stolen."
