Xerxe Inc.

Xerxe Inc., a multibillion-dollar industrial behemoth with business footprints in cutting-edge advanced research and innovations in almost all of the world's most innovative firms, has recently experienced a financial downturn. The company is on the verge of bankruptcy due to recent cyber security breaches that resulted in the theft of the company's Intellectual Property and proprietary advanced secrets and inventions. Who then planted ransomware to encrypt their own files, and any attempts to fix the problem will result in their server files being wiped clean.
The innovative company has lost a lot of investor confidence as a result of its recent misfortunes. The company has not yet released an official statement or even give a bearing as to how much of their trade secrets including government advanced research has been stolen. Although recently a statement of action was issued and the path to its redemption was said to be by trying to reverse the damages done by the cyber attackers. One way to do this is by computer forensic audits by cyber security experts.
