CRI is ready to guide you through the stages of the forensic lifecycle.
Forensic accounting (or “forensics”) is a term that describes the lifecycle of fraud from prevention to detection and response. Forensics is rooted in gathering evidence through fraud audits and investigations, supporting legal actions in litigation support, and providing expert witness testimony.
Our experienced professionals can assist you with your forensic needs. Those include, for example, statistical analysis or digital forensics – whether that is data analysis or examining computers, laptops, or other devices. We gather and analyze information – such as financial and non-financial data – from fraud examinations and professional interviews. Evaluating various forms of data allows us to perform and provide a thorough investigation.
Additionally, we can help attorneys harvest that data into “forensic” evidence for legal proceedings, and the CRI team can even serve as fact witnesses or expert witnesses. As expert witnesses, our professionals can analyze a fraud investigation and provide expert testimony regarding why fraud occurred — and who likely perpetrated it. Plus, CRI’s forensic professionals can suggest ways to cultivate your prevention and detection controls to minimize the occurrence or repetition of fraud.
