CRA hired to investigate theft of trade secrets at an investment bank

A global investment bank was investigating a private wealth manager who resigned and attempted to take business contacts to the new company. CRA professionals forensically collected and preserved the employee’s devices with storage capabilities; analyzed data for evidence of the alleged theft of client lists and client data. Our analysis showed that the private wealth manager downloaded confidential client data prior to resigning and attempted to avoid detection by sending each client their data on encrypted USB drives. CRA also provided expert testimony and communicated the facts determined through forensic analysis.
