Swiss Legal Technology Firm H7b1 Unveils New File Decryption Audit Service
Corporations and law firms operating in Switzerland and Europe can now benefit from an advanced forensic decryption audit service available within the Continent
GENEVA, Switzerland (23 February 2012) – Swiss Group H7b1 (www.h7b1.com), the forerunner of the litigation technology practice on continental Europe, is pleased to unveil the strengthening of its forensic practice with a new file decryption audit service.
When corporate data relating to litigation, arbitrations or investigations need to be prepared into specialized electronic databases, the presence of encrypted files creates a situation where legal counsel may need information about the effective strength of the file encryption.
In particular legal matters, H7b1's new forensic file decryption service endeavors to decrypt the files within guaranteed, systematic and agreed upon limits. This allows corporate counsel to determine the level of the decryption effort, in order to gain a methodological understanding of the level of potential access to the data.
Acknowledging Forensic Audit Needs in a European Context
“While we have provided forensic decryption services as part of our standard processing for several years, we could not help but notice a clear lack of service focusing directly on this issue on continental Europe," said Rafik Abboud, CEO of H7b1. "Whether in litigation, arbitration or investigation, knowing the effective accessibility of encrypted files may turn out to be a legal advantage of our clients against other parties to the matter", he added
Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, H7b1 operates litigation technology services in Switzerland and throughout Europe, through its centers and subsidiaries in Paris, Geneva, Zurich and Budapest, as well as through its mobile operations on the continent. Our firm combines appropriate pricing, internationally recognized expertise, proven technologies and the personal attention of a boutique legal technology service firm. We provide services in the area of litigation technology, digital forensics and data advisory.
H7b1 partners with IPRO Tech Inc. (www.iprotech.com), developers of the IPRO Suite of advanced imaging products, Equivio (www.equivio.com), developers of de-duplication software and LexisNexis Concordance (www.lexisnexis.com/concordance), manufacturer of the litigation management software Concordance, Concordance Image, and Concordance FYI.
