Monitoring / Auditing

COMPLIANCE We design, review and improve your compliance program.

MONITORING We evaluate the effectiveness of your compliance program as independent third parties.

Data Analysis

METHOD. We extract, select and analyze the data for each case. This allows us to order and understand them from a legal perspective using at the same time high safety standards.

TECHNOLOGY ASSISTED REVIEW ("TAR"). We use Artificial Intelligence tools to achieve a more effective and expedited review of documents.

PROTOCOLS We have strict security standards, data privacy and information management protocols.

Benefits of a digital analysis

Information that has been transmitted from paper to multiple electronic devices can often contain illegible formatting or encryption.

Digital forensic analysis allows us to identify and interpret data in a digital format by distributing and selecting information in a short time using specialized software. The analysis is divided into different stages: identification of relevant devices, collection and preservation of the data, data review, data analysis and presentation of findings.

This analysis is efficient and provides certainty for the management of data in litigations, arbitrations, investigations, information delivery and, in general, situations in which a large number of documents must be reviewed, analyzed or organized in a short time.

At SEAL we work with the Discover® software of  NUIX®. This software provides access to information through sophisticated text recognition tools, as well as metadata illustrating their modifications, authorship, modification dates and all necessary background to achieve a successful analysis.
