Our colleagues at Fox-IT won the award for ‘Security supplier of the year’ last night at the Computable Awards 2019.

Ahead of the awards Computable explained our case for nomination last week …

Digital forensic advice is becoming increasingly important in civil justice and criminal law. It requires very specific knowledge and capacity to be able to identify and interpret evidence of cybercrime quickly, effectively and accurately.

In addition, research must be conducted in the correct manner to be accepted by the court. The Netherlands only has six legal experts in the field of civil law. Two of them went through the extensive and intensive process of becoming a registered expert, partly due to their position as a forensic analyst at cyber security company Fox-IT. 

Every year, the help of the legal experts at Fox-IT is invoked in several legal cases. For the contribution to the digital crime case law, the general jury of the Computable Awards 2019 nominates Fox IT in the ‘Security Provider of the Year’ category. With Steffen Moorrees and Ivo Pooters, Fox-IT has two legal experts in the field of civil law. They can be brought in by the court for investigation in civil proceedings within the forensic IT investigation domain.
