Montreal, March 14, 2013 – Matthieu Chouinard, President and CEO of In Fidem Inc., one of Quebec’s largest security consulting firms, announced today that it will continue its expansion by acquiring Enquêtes Forensik Inc., a Laval, Quebec based company specializing in investigations and examination of electronic evidence.
“As a result of the acquisition of Enquêtes Forensik and the proven expertise of its professionals, we can now offer our customers not only new solutions and greater delivery capacity, but also an integrated investigation service combining traditional investigation and surveillance with computer investigation,” said Matthieu Chouinard.
“In a world in which almost all information exists in electronic form, business leaders are looking for more integrated security strategies and a team that is capable of responding to security incidents, whether they involve fraud, theft of intellectual property, system failures or ethical issues,” said Chouinard.
“We are very pleased to be joining In Fidem. The joining of our two companies will allow us both to serve our customers more effectively thanks to the extensive services offered by In Fidem, which complement our own, and also to share our expertise in investigation, monitoring threats and cyber espionage, and detecting anomalies,” said Enquêtes Forensik President Éric Lessard.
Enquêtes Forensik will remain an independent subsidiary of In Fidem in order to maintain the independence of its employees, who work in the areas of incident response, investigation, examination of electronic evidence and verification of security controls.
