Noel Kersh, PrincipalGiven the ever-increasing cybercrimes, there is no denying that data breaches have become a reoccurring headline around the world. Intellectual property continues to be an easy target for cybercriminals, which not only puts the reputation of the company brand at risk, but also makes a hole in its financial stability. Taking into consideration the adversities, it has become crucial for organizations to implement the best security measures to protect their data from both internal as well as external factors as a part of their everyday risk management procedures. Helping companies address this predicament is Pathway Forensics—a digital forensics firm specializing in computer forensics, cybersecurity, eDiscovery processing and hosting, data analysis, corporate investigations, and expert witness testimony.
Founded in 2008, the company is a subsidiary of Briggs & Veselka Co. and offers a variety of forensic services. The typical cases handled by Pathway involve compliance and discovery requests in litigation and government investigations, business and employment disputes, and fraud and criminal investigations for clients, including Fortune 500 corporations, law firms, and private companies. “We offer practical and cost-effective solutions to protect companies from both internal and external actors. We are dedicated to providing the best service while ensuring that our solutions are tailored to meet each client’s needs and challenges,” asserts Noel Kersh, Principal of Pathway Forensics.
While focusing on the headlines that highlight sophisticated external attackers, many organizations overlook the real risk created by their trusted insiders—the employees. It is rightly said that for a company, an employee is the greatest asset as well the greatest threat that can be the key perpetrator of the fraud. Kersh explains that employee data theft occurs most frequently just before, or immediately after, an individual’s termination or resignation from an organization. Keeping client needs at its core, Pathway Forensics leverages the expertise of its highly skilled digital investigations and forensics experts and conducts different kinds of digital forensic investigations necessary for helping the client accomplish its goals.
For the eDiscovery requirements of companies, Pathway Forensics offers cost-effective solutions that not only meet client requirements but also satisfy their legal obligations. Pathway Forensics decreases the cost of producing information for litigation review by implementing innovative search technologies and providing scalable and compatible functionality.

From forensic imaging and collection of digital evidence to locating accessed files, we have developed a way to help companies proactively monitor their data so that we can effectively assist them as per their specific needs,” explains Kersh.
For ensuring the overall protection of data, Pathway Forensics provides a holistic approach to cybersecurity for firms of all sizes. “We take a full risk circle approach to cybersecurity and privacy by covering everything from data breaches, ransomware, and vulnerability assessments, to accessing the risk that a company faces through their digital assets,” explains Jeff Eckert, Director of Cybersecurity at Pathway Forensics. Whether its network security assessments, 24/7 system monitoring, penetration testing, privacy assessments, disaster recovery planning, or incidence response and forensic analysis, the company does it all. Moreover, the company also offers forensic accounting and analysis, valuation, and litigation support services for law firms and their clients through their parent company, Briggs & Veselka.
Having carved a unique niche for itself in the market, Pathway Forensics has garnered huge traction in the market. In order to enhance its customer reach, the company has recently opened a new office in Austin, shortly after opening a second office in the Greater Houston area near Downtown Houston. “We are renowned for our ability to consistently deliver timely results, proactively communicate progress, and stand behind our findings with expert testimony. We aim to continue providing the best quality services to be the leading industry leader in digital forensics acquisition and analysis as well as large-scale enterprise collection and processing for eDiscovery matters,” concludes Ashley Organ Heasty, Marketing Director at Pathway Forensics.
