About FACT

FACT’s intelligence-led approach informs decision making and delivers successful outcomes

FACT was formed in 1983 to protect the content, product and interests of the film and television industries. By remaining at the forefront of technological advances and as a result of our successes over the years, we are regarded as the leaders in intellectual property protection.

We investigate cybercrime, fraud and other IP crime. Our ethos is to protect, prevent, detect, deter, disrupt and dismantle, always keeping in mind the ultimate sanctions of criminal prosecution and civil litigation.

Our experience in intelligence-gathering has equipped our team to expand into global due diligence services. We meet the needs of governments, law enforcement and private organisations in mitigating risk and making informed decisions.

Working in both the UK and internationally, FACT’s range of services and strategic and tactical solutions are designed to tackle crime and support businesses. We provide bespoke approaches to suit individual circumstances, support commercial objectives and protect organisational reputation and revenue.

Discreet, professional, high quality outcomes are guaranteed with FACT, based on over three decades of experience and expertise and a hard-won reputation for excellence.
