Forensics experts for Dawn Raid Support

Regulatory agencies with oversight over competition laws and corporate criminal investigations have the authority to conduct unannounced searches (a “Dawn Raid”) of documents at a company’s premises and private residences. When a company is subject to a Dawn Raid, data that is held electronically – either locally on premises or sometimes in the cloud – will be seized or forensically imaged for detailed examination by the authorities.

Get Dawn Raid Ready with

Organisations need to review their preparedness for dawn raids by:

  • Understanding the risk factors
  • Mapping their data
  • Documenting a response plan
  • Training participants
  • Performing readiness assessments and mock exercises

Regulators in the U.K. and abroad recognise the value of technology-assisted review (TAR) workflows as important tools that can prevent massive data dumps and allow them to focus their analysis on critical and relevant data. TAR workflows, defensible processes, and data handling is where Epiq is the best of the best.​
