In 2019 Avian has hired two additional forensic specialists and opened offices in central Stockholm, Sweden.
This is a direct result of the growing demand from our customers for platforms and services to support continuous improvement within digital investigations.
What do the journalists facing the biggest data leak in history and companies preparing for the new EU General Data Protection Regulation have in common? The answer is they both face colossal challenges when it comes to processing, searching and understanding vast amounts of structured and unstructured data.
The Panama Papers involved over 1.5 million documents, totalling 2.6 terabytes of data. Everyday organisations across Europe are faced with the same challenge of gaining insights from mountains of data, which now falls under stricter data protection and privacy rules due to the new EU GDPR. Before you can protect your data you need to understand where it is, identify what is happening with it and be able to manage compliance requests.
Join our seminar on June 14th 2016 at the House of Industry in Copenhagen to learn more about how organisations can leverage technology to solve their big data challenges and ensure compliance with the EU GDPR.
Nuix 7 is now generally available, providing even more horizontal scalability and investigations functionality
Search, review and relate vast amounts of documents, emails and scanned contracts - just like ICIJ during the Panama Papers investigations.
Talk to Avian about how your team can leverage Nuix investigations and eDiscovery technology to get overview and insights into vast amounts of data, e.g. documents, emails, databases and logs.
Nuix supplied document processing and investigation technology that was essential to the Panama Papers investigation conducted by German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung and the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ). Get more info here.
For many years, digital forensic investigators have used specialist forensic tools to “dig deep” into a handful of computers and other evidence sources one by one. Typically, non-technical investigators and subject matter experts must rely on a digital forensic investigator to extract the information he or she thinks is relevant from each device. The result is an incomplete and subjective slice of the evidence.
This Nuix white paper outlines an investigative lab model that makes it possible to divide digital evidence and spread the review workload between many investigators and subject matter experts. This means different types of evidence can be examined by the people most qualified to understand it and its context.

Since 2013, d60 has worked in Digital Forensics - an exciting area with great potential. This business area is now mature enough to become an independent company. Therefore, all d60 activities within Digital Forensics are transferred to a new company, Avian.
"The number of bank robberies in Denmark has decreased from 221 in 2000 to 21 in 2014. It is a statistic that very well explains the importance of digital investigations - the crime has not disappeared, it has just moved into the digital domain. Theft, fraud, terrorism, etc. are hidden behind covert networks too large to comprehend for any one person. It is necessary to exploit new technologies to handle the massive challenges of increasing amounts of digital evidence and increasingly sophisticated cybercrime. Those technologies are offered by Avian", says founder and CEO Jacob Isaksen, who until recently was Head of Solutions & Consulting Services in d60.
Avian will operate in digital forensics, including investigation of digital evidence, cyber security and data protection. Avian focuses on providing solutions based on technology partners and strong skills in project management and IT management.
Partnerships with leading suppliers
Since 2013, d60 has worked with digital investigative solutions, including collaborations with world leading suppliers in this field, such as Nuix and Dell. d60 has secured local presence and expertise in consulting, project management, integration and support, so that Nordic authorities and companies have been able to get the best solutions on the market. It is these activities, which now move out of d60 and into a brand new business.
CEO of d60, Brian Østberg, says:
"For d60, the digital forensics area been a success story, but the role of supplier of products is outside the d60's core business - the products supplied by Avian are so good that the task lies in the selection, management and implementation, not development. I am really glad that Jacob Isaksen will take over this part of the business, giving it the time and commitment required. Digital exploration in the Nordic countries becomes stronger with Avian ".
