Today, vast quantities of electronic data are created, transferred, or stored on company-owned servers, mobile devices, archival platforms, proprietary databases, and inactive legacy systems. When faced with internal investigations, external regulatory inquiries, or civil and criminal proceedings, organizations must timely and accurately identify, preserve and collect this data—or risk possibly devastating consequences. Yet the sheer quantity and the increasing breadth of data types and locations introduces new risks that challenge most companies’ existing strategies.
Stroz Friedberg is well known for the high-level of assurance we provide clients when dealing with complex eDiscovery issues. Our experts have developed and executed successful data strategies for some of the largest litigations around the globe. Our methodology is disciplined yet flexible: We create a highly tailored plan to identify, preserve, and collect data, deploying tools that are specific to each client’s needs.
Our teams of digital forensic examiners undertake the collection and preservation of electronically stored information (ESI) at every stage of the eDiscovery process to help ensure the overall workflow is legally defensible. Worldwide, we have 12 cutting-edge digital forensics laboratories and four secure eDiscovery Data Centers (our data centers are SSAE16 certified) where our examiners identify, preserve, and collect relevant data to provide definitive, fact-based conclusions for our clients, their counsel, opposing counsel, and the courts. We also have a proprietary mobile data processing and hosting platform, NOMAD, that allows us to deftly identify and preserve documents and data onsite, anywhere on the globe.
No repository of digital information is outside of our purview. We examine artifacts and uncover the truth wherever it lives—on servers, enterprise databases, mobile devices, hard drives, removable media, backup tapes, social media, and the cloud. We also have extensive experience dealing with complex and non-standard forms of data, including, but not limited to, encrypted data, non-searchable documents, data in foreign languages, and paper documents.
