Forensics and Collections
CDS’ Forensic Services Group offers a comprehensive range of forensic collection, analysis, and advisory services. The team is capable of forensically sound and targeted acquisitions of nearly every form of data including mobile devices, cloud storage, and social media sites.
Our forensic experts provide highly specialized analysis for clients involved in matters of all degrees of sensitivity. Forensic analysis is particularly helpful in cases involving areas of serious contention including intellectual property theft, employer/employee breach of contract cases, or in cases involving gross employee misconduct. These specialized services are tailored to a client’s specific needs and are accomplished in a targeted and confidential manner.
CDS’ technicians are experienced in international and domestic data collections and examinations. Our investigators provide services to private corporations, government and intelligence agencies, and law firms, providing both technical and advisory expert opinions.
Early Case Assessment
CDS deploys early case assessment (ECA) tools to help clients gain an understanding of their data sets prior to processing into the review platform. Multi-threading and our distributive architecture allow you and your team to analyze multiple data sources simultaneously. Detailed reports, de-duplication, email threading, and extensive filtering tools mean that the data set can be drastically reduced prior to processing, saving time and money.
Processing and Production
eDiscovery that is fast, efficient, and defensible allows litigation teams to focus on manageable volumes of meaningful evidence. CDS’ project managers and engineers utilize our fast and reliable infrastructure to expertly guide ESI volumes of any size through the discovery process.
If you’re working around the clock, so are we. We support fast, scalable, and highly secure data centers 24/7 in the U.S. and the EU. Our hosting and eDiscovery processes are ISO 27001 certified and SSAE 16 Type 2 tested, assuring you of the highest standards possible for your data.
Whether clients need to obtain an early view of data, cull large document sets, identify specific information, or prioritize a review, CDS can assist with the process of using analytics to support and enhance workflows.
For technology assisted review (TAR), CDS extracts details about raw data to provide useful knowledge and insight. Our experts provide client training in the practical use of analytics, and our algorithms can reveal patterns that give a better understanding of document sets.
CDS collaborates with your legal and IT departments to understand your networks, data, employee profiles, and risk sensitivity. We then work with you to design document retention and destruction policies. This method renders information accessible for legal matters, while reducing storage costs and risk exposure by purging unnecessary data.
CDS Advisory Services provides strategic, results-driven eDiscovery solutions that help clients efficiently manage ESI risks and reduce costs, both pre- and post-litigation. The coverage is end-to-end including review planning and management, early planning and strategy, strategic Searching and review prioritization, corporate discovery policies and procedures, proactive and information management.
