Who We Are

Since its creation, TEKID has surrounded itself with experts from different backgrounds and believes in a holistic approach to Cyber Security, also called Cyber Space Safety. The synergy of Cyber Security, Legal and Operations offers a unified high-level approach and expertise that only few companies possess internally or use.

Our business core: the absolute willingness to best protect and advise our customers on the underlying risks of exploiting the Cyber Space. With a cross-cultural team of 40+ people across 4 countries, our focus is to support our customers in their daily operations, leverage their experience with ours and guide them through their business transformation.

Investigation & Discovery


TL Group is the result of a joint-venture between Leaf and TEKID to bridge digital security and cyber regulatory framework in a holistic approach since worldwide countries are increasingly asking for Cyber space sovereignty.
It is nowadays much harder, if not impossible, to achieve satisfying results without involving these two skills alongside.

TEKID provides business-oriented services for medium-sized companies to multinational organisations. We can provide a large spectrum of services, such as cyber-attack or traditional crimes investigation, legal or technical compliance projects, non-intrusive monitoring of your digital footprint in the Cyber Space, active monitoring of your assets and resources, business analysis of your Digital and Innovation programs, or more simply with operational supports.

Our competitive edge lies in the growing fact that projects become more and more complex and require multiple expertise. TEKID has therefore developed a specific methodology called A.I.M. (Assess, Investigate, Mitigate) which guarantees a 360° approach, integrating our triple expertise from Legal, Operations and Cyber Security in all our projects. We indeed possess internal resources with various expertise and skills, from Cyber Security Engineers, Forensics engineers, Lawyers, Technical consultants, Business analysts, etc., as well as the adapted technical tools coming from leading providers.
