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 ".
