Hi Seth, could you just tell us a little bit about Stroz Friedberg and your role there as UK executive managing director?
We're living in a digital world, where organisations are facing a rapidly changing risk landscape. Stroz Friedberg works with large corporates, law firms and government agencies to understand, manage and counter such risks. For example, we are called in to support some of the most high profile criminal cases in the UK and were tasked by Google to report on the issues around the development of Street View, following widespread privacy concerns.
As executive managing director, I am responsible for the company's London and Hong Kong offices, and the delivery of several services: digital forensics, cyber crime and incident response, security science, forensic accounting, compliance, due diligence, data disclosure and analytics. We have a further nine offices in the United States.
Before joining Stroz Friedberg, I was an assistant US attorney. This offered an excellent opportunity to see some of the digital threats first-hand, as my primary role was to conduct and supervise investigations and prosecutions of computer-related crime – such as intrusions, computer and internet fraud, identity theft and other abuses – involving the theft and use of information over computer networks.
