Corporate undercover investigations are one of the most powerful methods of investigation.

Undercover operatives are unique in their ability to blend into a variety of different situations, and we only employ Human Asset handlers who are well experienced in source handling.
As most information comes from people, an interview is a conversation intended to solicit information.
