One of the greatest challenges in any investigation is finding the relevant data and managing the issues related to jurisdictional access to data and data transport. Collections must be executed efficiently, cost-effectively, and with strict chain of custody.
KPMG’s leading technology capabilities enable our clients to respond quickly to adverse events. Our clients value access to our skilled forensic technology professionals who have the experience and reach to help them recover and analyze digital evidence virtually anywhere in the world.
Evidence often exists only in digital form. Locating and extracting it, particularly in multinational organizations, requires more than customized equipment and software—it requires professionals trained and experienced in myriad laws and regulations regarding data collection, storage, and transport; privacy issues; and human rights legislation. Furthermore, it requires the ability to understand and map IT infrastructure and to collect and process data not only from common enterprise systems, but also from custom and legacy systems.
KPMG has the experience, technical skill, and global resources to help our clients tackle these important issues. KPMG helps you collect, recover, and analyze digital evidence virtually anywhere in the world. We have conducted thousands of international electronically stored information (ESI) collections and analyses.
Organizations face a variety of complex issues when dealing with ESI, as well as substantial costs in responding effectively to litigation-related or regulatory requests. Managing ESI effectively is getting harder and the stakes are getting higher.
Our services are specifically tailored to investigation and discovery processes and can easily accommodate high volumes of documents or data as well as multiple legal teams when needed. KPMG helps organizations mitigate risks and reduce discovery management costs by (i) providing advanced, easy-to-use tools for data culling, review, and mining in native file format; (ii) applying the highest standards and leading practices for custom security protocols and policy; and (iii) providing a full audit trail accountability and tracking of your data on a secure, remotely accessible platform.
