Data is the lifeblood of your business. It’s the source code for your programs, the algorithms for your trading platform, the purchasing patterns of your customers and the backbone of a modern business.

Reliable forensic collection and interrogation of data is critical in both criminal law and private investigations.

It’s not only the rising volume of data that is an issue, but also the variety of data sources, from social media, audio and video, big data and embedded systems. Businesses and their advisers are also facing an increasing variety of regulatory and investigatory challenges. Obligations to prevent unethical business conduct such as bribery, corruption and tax evasion, alongside conventional civil and criminal offences, create an evolving data governance and compliance burden.
