Given the explosive growth of electronic data organisations produce today, the need for proper handling of relevant data supporting litigation and investigations has never been greater.
Boards worry about the three Rs: Risk, Regulation and Reputation. Most organisations want to avoid learning the hard way and want to understand:

Cyber-incidents are more regularly becoming front-page news, and many large and small organisations have been caught off-guard when customer password lists and other private or IP sensitive information has been leaked online.
Failure to respond quickly to an incident can lead to increased risk, regulatory sanctions, financial losses and reputational damage.
Good quality digital fact finding is critical. Success may depend on the exact time a (cyber) act was recorded in log files, an email was received or a mobile phone text message sent. Moreover, this digital information can provide the smoking gun evidence and sometimes the only evidence of improper, malicious and criminal behaviour.
