Welcome to Washington State Investigators
My name is Wolfgang Grasst founder and principal investigator at Washington State Investigators. Please continue reading to learn about Washington State Investigators history, and my experience. To begin, the acronym "WSIPI", pronounced WAH-SIP-EE, stands for Washington State Investigators Private Investigation. It is easier to type a short URL @wsipi.com as opposed to our full business name or when emailing us, i.e. @washingtonstateinvestigators.com. We are a private investigation firm dedicated to supporting individuals and businesses like yourself, with an affordable means to the information and investigative services you require.
In 2004, I was contracted as a specialist to perform computer surveillance "monitoring" using specialized software. This software would allow me to remotely collect data about the activities performed on the computer in question. I provided services for fraud, identity theft, and online harassment investigations assisting attorneys and private investigators with their cases.
In 2007, I was co-founder and lead investigator at Eye Spy, Inc. a technology based private investigation firm where I continued working on internet crimes, performing counter surveillance services (bugs sweeps, etc.), and specializing in online data research and video surveillance.
In 2010, I took an opportunity to earn two Associate of Applied Science degrees in Information Technology Networking and Security. This allowed me to include services to advise clients about network and security best practices and to educate employees about BYOD (bring your own device), social media and social engineering. With the desire to keep my skill set sharp, I continually enroll in online classes to stay current with technology as related to security. For many of us, technology is a normal part of our daily lives. Having technical knowledge about the world of IT including the "Internet of Things" will only benefit clients by allowing us to offer advice to better protect and secure their computers, networks, online activities, provide identity theft awareness, and better understand social engineering.
In 2013, I founded Washington State Investigators and my capacity is that of principal investigator and ships captain. Currently, I'm growing and expanding Washington State Investigators by providing technology based services. These services will include identity theft prevention and recovery, security awareness, online data research, remote services for network, PC tutoring, and covert surveillance.
