Stroz Friedberg was called on by a major law firm for our investigative expertise in both forensics and the traditional private investigations. The firm noticed the theft of an external hard drive, containing a tera-byte of sensitive client information and legal work. Stroz Friedberg Investigations (SFI) suspected that the theft was an inside job. A thorough analysis of internal and external video surveillance camera footage, coupled with an extensive covert search of websites like eBay and Craig’s List led to the recovery of the hard drive and prosecution of an employee of the firm. A Stroz Friedberg examiner performed a forensic analysis of the hard drive, which determined that – as is true in many cases where the device is stolen for its value as hardware, not its data – the sensitive client data and legal work had not been accessed. Thus, the firm was not required to disclose to their clients that their information may have been compromised.
