What CBI Digital Forensics Can Do for You
Potentially relevant documents and information (both paper and electronic) must be preserved when litigation is “reasonably anticipated.” This is done by issuing a legal hold, (also called a litigation hold), which is a notice sent to those who possess likely relevant information to begin measures to preserve physical and electronic documents. Preservation protects the Electronically Stored Information (ESI) from loss or destruction while the parties determine its relevance.
eDiscovery is the process of identification, preservation, processing, review and production of electronically stored information (ESI). Such discovery may be necessary for your organization because of a civil litigation, criminal investigation, regulatory inquiry, internal investigation, or simply in the context of a regulatory compliance disclosure.

Fraud and Forensic Accounting
There are many reasons why organizations may need to engage in fraud, governance, and forensic accounting, most are to protect the organization or to stay compliant with regulations. Forensic accounting can include activities such as authentication of financial reporting, supplier validations, and data mining. Fraud and governance activities are very broad depending on the objective but examples include: gap analysis & risk assessment, training, forensic ESI capture, and implementing the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM)
AML [Anti-Money Laundering]
By law, financial institutions must do their due diligence to monitor and report suspicious activities of money laundering to the authorities. Monitoring clients’ behavior and activity for any potential abuse, examining financial histories, and proper vetting of potential clients are all actions that need to be taken.
