I know what you’re thinking. The name IPCybercrime has been around for more than 15 years and everybody’s used to seeing it on our reports. Countless landmark cases and academic journals citing IPCybercrime, blah, blah, blah…
But we recently hit a crossroads. When we initially changed our name in 2003 from The Holmes Detective Agency to IPCybercrime, the purpose was to become more descriptive. At the time, and for more than a decade, all we did was catch counterfeiters on the Web. But, throughout the years, our services have grown and so has our company. To the point where our descriptive name was impeding on our marketing.
Meeting New Demands
This change is primarily to coincide with the rising demand for our work in threat mitigation, crisis management, trade secret theft, leak prevention, and due diligence. We still assist with counterfeiting, piracy, and other trademark investigations. It’s just not our only focus moving forward. So we decided on a new, less descriptive name, MI:33. Why MI:33 you ask? If I told you I’d have to kill you. Just kidding (no, we’re not).
Our business structure/ownership has not changed. Only our name, and domain. This means our email addresses will change from firstname.lastname@example.org to email@example.com. NOTE it is .CO, not .com. Our telephone number remains (972) 422-2100 and extensions are the same: Rob 701, Jason 702, Nastassia 703, and Mary 704.
We appreciate your understanding during this change. I assure you it will make the most sense in the long run.
Now, I’m going to finish my coffee.
