In addition, Stroz Friedberg and DFLabs plan to conduct an on-going “exchange program” whereby digital forensic examiners from DFLabs will collaborate and train with the staff at Stroz Friedberg and vice versa. The firms also plan to enhance their internal proprietary training sessions to ensure that every examiner stays abreast of the newest forensic techniques and technology. Moving forward, the firms intend to collaborate on white papers and articles published in peer-reviewed journals.
“While each of Stroz Friedberg’s offices – in New York, Washington DC, Los Angeles, and Minneapolis – contains a fully-staffed and fully-equipped forensic laboratory, the firm will now be aligned formally with the experts at DFLabs and its top-tier talent,” said Stroz.
“Working with Stroz Friedberg’s team will give us a great opportunity to work with one of the most respected highly-specialized consulting firms,” stated Forte. “Our commitment is to guarantee top quality service for our global customer base; this strategic relationship will further improve customer satisfaction.”
