Cybersecurity and Digital Forensics Expert John Wilson to Direct New Consulting Capability as Cybersecurity Consulting Practice Manager
WASHINGTON, D.C. – January 30, 2020 – HaystackID, a specialized eDiscovery services firm that helps corporations and law firms find, listen, and learn from data when they face complex, data-intensive investigations and litigation, today announced the introduction of its Cybersecurity Consulting Practice under the leadership of data security and digital forensics expert John Wilson. Providing a highly trained team of data security and digital forensic security experts to help assess, implement, and manage cyber risk, information governance, and managed security initiatives, the Cybersecurity Consulting Practice is available immediately for engagement.
Cybersecurity and the practice of ensuring data integrity, confidentiality, and availability spans the spectrum of the information lifecycle from the creation of data at the start of the data discovery lifecycle to the defensible disposition of data at the end of the legal discovery lifecycle. To address the expanding needs of legal, information technology, and security professionals operating in the eDiscovery ecosystem, HaystackID has created a dedicated consulting practice and an initial set of services designed to address cybersecurity challenges unique to audit, investigation, and litigation efforts. These cybersecurity services are focused on three core functional areas and help customers accomplish three core tasks.
Core Cybersecurity Functional Areas
+ Cyber Risk (Vulnerabilities, Exposure, and Testing)
+ Information Governance (Compliance, Privacy, and Protection)
+ Managed Security (Intelligence, Migration, and Remote)
Core Cybersecurity Tasks
+ Assessment (Audit, Evaluate, and Recommend)
+ Implementation (Scope, Test, and Deploy)
+ Management (Support, Report, and Remediate)
“A natural extension of our data and legal discovery security expertise and infrastructure, the introduction of our Cybersecurity Consulting Practice provides organizations with a trusted partner and active participant in the assessment, implementation, and management of key discovery-centric digital security requirements ranging from Business Email Compromise (BEC) protection to Personally Identifiable Information (PII) audits and reviews,” shared John Wilson, CISO and President of Forensics for HaystackID. “Cybersecurity is a foundational part of all our proactive and reactive discovery support efforts, and we are excited to extend our offering portfolio to now include specific cyber risk, information governance, and managed security offerings.”
“With more than $26 billion of exposed dollar losses due to BEC alone between July 2016 and July 2019 according to the FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center, an organization’s digital security profile now has a direct and quantifiable impact on the business success or failure of any form of enterprise,” noted Hal Brooks, CEO of HaystackID. “With our understanding and experience supporting the eDiscovery ecosystem, we are pleased to be able to translate that expertise into targeted services for companies, law firms, and services providers seeking to address the security of digital data beyond the litigation lifecycle and throughout the information lifecycle. Our new Cybersecurity Consulting Practice formalizes our capability in this area and now makes our services previously only accessible to current customers available to all.”
“As a trusted partner in delivering comprehensive eDiscovery services, we are often asked by our customers to advise and engage in supporting their cybersecurity initiatives,” shared Michael Sarlo, Senior Executive Vice President of eDiscovery and Digital Forensics for HaystackID. “Our new cybersecurity practice and services formalize the delivery of our expertise and offerings in this area and provide our customers with additional tools to support data security throughout the lifecycle of electronically stored information.”
Additionally, with the complete eDiscovery portfolio of Forensics First, Early Case Insight, and ReviewRight offerings available from HaystackID, the Cybersecurity Consulting Practice is fully capable of translating assessments and advice into implementation and management for organizations anticipating or engaged in audits, investigations, or litigation.
