Computer Forensic Services

KPMG's Computer Forensic services involve the preservation, recovery and investigation of electronically stored information (ESI) in a legally acceptable manner that preserves the chain of custody. KPMG assists organizations with protection, recovery and investigation of ESI from a multitude of sources, including: user computers, email servers, file servers, specialized applications, cloud environments, external hard drives, peripheral storage devices, and mobile devices.

Our Computer Forensic services include:

  • Collection and investigation of ESI
  • Expert witness services
  • Complex investigative support to answer key questions when technology is a key component

eDiscovery Services (Managed Services and Transactional Mandates)

KPMG’s differentiated, wide-ranging approach combines people, process, and technology to cost-effectively tackle today’s complex electronic data discovery landscape. KPMG's eDiscovery services help organizations manage digital evidence, including the acquisition, management and analysis of large data sets of electronically stored information (ESI).

On transactional mandates, our professionals leverage sophisticated proprietary and market-leading licensed technologies, that allow us to consistently and systematically track and maintain chain of custody for evidence, from collection through to processing, review and production. To support these services, member firms of KPMG International operate secure data centres in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, India, South Africa, Germany and Austria.

KPMG’s eDiscovery services' unique approach and design of its technical architecture enables organizations under managed service arrangements to administer KPMG’s sophisticated proprietary and market-leading licensed technologies in an independent environment which prevents conflicts of interest arising from KPMG's past, current or future clients.

Cyber Crime Incident Response

As many organizations are recognizing and experiencing first-hand, cyber-attacks are no longer a matter of if, but when. Recent cyber breaches at major corporations highlight the increasing sophistication, stealth and persistence of cyber-attacks that organizations are facing today.

The loss of intellectual property, customer data, and other sensitive information—as well as resulting business operations disruption—can cause severe financial and reputational damage.

KPMG member firms' approach to cyber security can assist you with detecting and responding to cyber breaches by providing immediate response services. KPMG cyber security professionals have experience in investigations, digital forensics, and recovery which can help your organization secure evidence, understand what happened, mitigate risks and support internal, legal and/or law enforcement inquiries.

Forensic Data Analytics

Detecting fraud is difficult because fraudsters are constantly adapting. Data-driven intelligence is therefore required to detect and prevent emerging frauds.

KPMG's forensic data analytics services help clients gain an in-depth understanding of financial and non-financial data residing both within their organizations, and relevant, publicly available information (such as social media). Forensic data analytics are used regularly in identifying trends, patterns, or unusual transactions or events that may be indicative of fraud, misconduct and abuse. KPMG uses a wide range of sophisticated tools and software to leverage the technical and financial acumen of our experienced professionals.

KPMG's forensic data analytics services include:

  • Identification of unusual activity and potential fraud and misconduct indicators
  • Continuous monitoring of key processes and controls
  • Creation of customized fraud response modules and dashboards
  • Development of fraud prevention systems in the form of scorecards, dashboards or detailed reports

Departed Employee Investigative Services

As human talent flows between competing organizations the risk of intellectual property theft is rising. KPMG’s Departed Employee Investigative Services can be used during, after, or even prior to an employee departure or internal investigation as a means of identifying red flags and erroneous activity and identifying conduct that poses risk to an organization, or contradicts policy.

KPMG further supports internal employee investigations by utilizing experts in investigative interviewing, including former law enforcement individuals that can assist in the investigation of current or former employees. In addition, KPMG’s Corporate Intelligence group can assist with conducting integrity and reputation due diligence exercises along with gathering intelligence on people and organizations around the globe.

Anton Pillar Execution and Preparation Services

KPMG is able to offer this unique service due to the expert staff it has within our Forensic Technology Practice. Former law enforcement experts with years of experience in the preparation and execution of Criminal Code Search Warrants and Civil orders bring their extensive experience to bear to assist counsel with not only the wholesome execution of court orders for the collection of electronic documents, using law enforcement strategies and approach, but also in the preparation of these orders.
