DIGITALIZATION CONSULTING

New technologies offer companies new opportunities and possibilities, open up markets and create the basis for innovative business models. However, they are often accompanied by challenges that need to be legally assessed and mastered. We support you in this process as partners and thus jointly ensure that you make the most of the opportunities of digitalisation.

The digital transformation is in full swing. Digitisation and the legally secure data protection that goes with it are essential components of your future business success. We lead your digital transformation into the future with you.

We also support you in questions of cyber risk management and compliance with data protection laws, labour law and economic issues, together with our partners and technology experts. From system upgrades or a move to the cloud … to applications designed to enhance the customer experience … and to integral third-party relationships – one wrong move can lead to wire fraud, ransomware, data breaches and more; not to mention regulatory action, civil lawsuits and reputational damage.

Together with our clients, we ascertain the legal requirements if necessary, draw up tailor-made framework agreements and guide you through the subsequent negotiations with your clients.

Business process outsourcing projects in particular, are a focus of our work.

IT forensics expert opinion

The increasing use of information technology systems by companies, the technical advancement of consumer-oriented payment methods, the current dependence of the end user on technological progress and the voluntary sharing of personal data in social networks are being abused by criminals.

Almost every day, one reads new reports about data attacks on companies or the phishing of account data. Massive damage is caused by phishing via fake websites, e-mails or short messages, and data theft can cause millions in damage to companies. Using modern IT forensics, deleted data and information on hard drives and other storage media can be reconstructed.

In labour disputes, companies can find themselves in a seemingly hopeless situation. Here, IT forensics can help to prepare for any necessary dismissals or in internal investigations of digitally verifiable crimes.

Through a computer forensic analysis, it is often possible to determine whether a computer system has been remotely controlled or otherwise abused by means of a Trojan. Among other things, the times of use of the computer can be traced. If a defendant demonstrably did not have access to the computer system at the time of the crime, the findings of the IT forensic expert can lead to an acquittal.
