Digital Investigations

Compromise Investigation

Ask Fox-IT to investigate whether there has been unauthorised access to your network or information systems.

  • dentify traces of (past) compromises and understand the extent and the severity of each compromise.
  • Receive a report with validated findings and recommendations on next steps, and longer-term enhancements.
Although you should feel confident that the security measures you put in place will function as they are meant to, advanced attackers are often able to bypass these measures, unnoticed. Not all traffic passing through your layers of security is safe: technology can fail, and personnel may ignore security precautions and procedures. This could enable an attacker to infiltrate your network and remain present, undetected, for months.


Fox-IT’s Compromise Assessment is a unique service that detects key indicators of compromise to an infrastructure or the information systems within it.

Typically, the assessment involves the forensic analysis of a wide variety of data sources, including network traffic, system/application logs and host (endpoint) behavior. This may require the deployment of some technology in the infrastructure under investigation, such as devices for network traffic recording and analysis (probes) and digital forensic analysis software.


The benefits of performing a Compromise Assessment extend beyond that. By gathering a wealth of forensic information, analyzing it and discussing the results with your IT staff, Fox-IT experts gain an insight into the various aspects of your IT security. The final report, therefore, also contains recommendations in the areas of general security and preventive, detective and responsive/readiness measures.

The Compromise Assessment can be extended to include a Forensic Readiness Assessment and a Cyber Security Assessment. In doing so, your organization can use Fox-IT’s Compromise Assessment as a starting point in designing a new IT security strategy or in validating and strengthening an existing one.
