Introducing the Cybercheck Guide to Backstopping: Your New Ally in Ensuring Accurate Intelligence

A New Era in Digital Investigation

Welcome to the new world of law enforcement. A world where Cyber-NDA is just as crucial as physical evidence. In this era, the challenge for law enforcement isn’t just finding evidence—it’s about validating it, corroborating it against a sea of digital data. That’s where we come in. At Cybercheck, we’ve been busy behind the scenes, building a tool that can help you do just that.

Today, we’re thrilled to announce the launch of our Guide to Backstopping. It’s designed to be your reliable companion, aiding you in corroborating our intelligence findings and helping you advance your investigations with confidence. Our guide is not just a tool; it’s a bridge that connects the dots, providing a clear path from raw intelligence to solid evidence.

We understand that in the digital world, information is often scattered and fragmented. A name here, an IP address there, a date of birth tucked away in a forum. Our backstopping guide is designed to help you pull all these pieces together, cross-validating each piece of data, and ensuring everything is as it should be. It’s about giving you the confidence to proceed, knowing your evidence is solid.

Backstopping Tombstone Data

The first step in our guide focuses on tombstone data, like date of birth and addresses. These crucial pieces of information are often the backbone of an investigation, but they can also be the most vulnerable to inaccuracies. Our guide provides clear instructions on how to use your current applications or other open-source tools to validate these details with precision.

But we don’t stop at tombstone data. Our guide goes further, delving into the more complex aspects of digital investigation.

Backstopping Digital Footprints

Emails, online aliases, phone numbers – they all form a part of someone’s digital footprint. And they can all provide vital clues in an investigation. But how do you know if the information is legitimate? How do you know if that email address really belongs to your suspect, or if that online alias is just a red herring?

That’s where our backstopping guide comes in. We provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to use Cybercheck to validate these digital footprints, building a comprehensive and accurate picture of your subject. It’s about more than just collecting data; it’s about making sure that data is reliable.

And just like with tombstone data, this means less guesswork for you. It means more confidence in your findings. It means a stronger case when it comes time to present your evidence.

Backstopping Digital Markers

URL’s, IP addresses, malware, dark web forums. These are the digital markers from a Cybercheck report that can provide vital clues in an investigation. But they’re also the most complex and challenging to validate. With our backstopping guide, we aim to simplify this process for you.

We provide clear, easy-to-follow instructions on how to use Cybercheck to validate these digital markers. It’s about providing you with the tools to dig deeper, to uncover the truth hidden in the digital shadows.

Backstopping Geolocation Data

The final step in our guide focuses on one of the most powerful tools in digital investigation: geolocation data. This data can provide a wealth of information, from a subject’s whereabouts at a specific time to their regular haunts. But validating this data can be a complex and time-consuming process.

That’s where our backstopping guide comes in. We provide clear instructions on how to use the tools of the trade to validate geolocation data, ensuring you have the most accurate and reliable information possible.


With the launch of our Guide to Backstopping, we at Cybercheck are proud to provide you with a tool that will bolster your investigations, ensuring accuracy and confidence in your findings. This guide is designed to be your ally in the digital world, helping you navigate the complexities of digital investigation with ease.
