QDiscovery Approach to Forensic Analysis
At QDiscovery, we assist your case team in identifying and analyzing all pertinent data sources related to your case or investigation. Our team of highly experienced forensic examiners and eDiscovery consultants understand investigation and litigation realities and bring vital expertise to assist you in developing effective strategies to uncover the truth hidden in your data. This consultative partnership lasts throughout the entire life of your case.
Our forensic capabilities span the entire left side of the EDRM from information governance and identification through analysis and reporting. We observe rigorous intake methods to preserve chain of custody and apply strict protocols in our investigations ensuring that the evidence and findings are admissible in court. We answer the important who, what, where, when and how questions that live in your data.
Our Forensics Team
QDiscovery has a full team of qualified digital forensic practitioners made up of seasoned forensic investigators, IT professionals and in-house attorneys. Our forensic practice group will work with your legal team during every stage of the litigation lifecycle to ensure that relevant data sources are identified, collected and analyzed.
If our forensic analysis indicates that litigation should proceed, you need confidence that the team who did the analysis can provide defensible reports and testimony. Rather than offer up your client’s IT personnel as witnesses, you can rely on the years of testifying experience the QDiscovery team brings to the table. Our forensic experts present technical information in a way that people without a technical background – such as judges and jurors – can understand. Our forensic examiners have experience testifying in local, state and federal courts as well as arbitration panels and other adjudicating venues.
Getting the right team in place at the onset of litigation, or anticipated litigation, can mean the difference between proving your case, getting a suit dismissed and even sanctions.
Departed Employee Investigations
85% of trade secret theft is committed by people internal to their organizations. Proactively manage risk and minimize exposure to damages by instituting policies that include an investigation of departing employees’ computers and mobile devices. Our services provide peace of mind that you have defensibly and in a forensically-sound manner preserved and analyzed the data needed to determine if litigation should be filed.
Security Incident Response (Data Breach)
We help determine the scope of the breach and provide a comprehensive assessment of what information has been accessed and how it has been moved or used. We also recommend remedial measures that assure greater future security.
Mobile Device and Social Media Investigations
Combining the years of experience our forensic team has with the impeccable skills and breadth of knowledge of our project management and processing teams, QDiscovery has developed custom workflows to collect and process non-standard ESI. This includes mobile devices, social media and other internet data to ensure our clients can search, review and produce these critical data sources. With QMobile, review mobile device data the same way you review emails, within Relativity or other review platforms.
