Diversified Risk Management Inc. Joins Kroll Ontrack’s Legal Technologies Partner Program

Los Angeles, California, June 4, 2006 -- Diversified Risk Management, Inc. (DRM) has joined Kroll Ontrack Inc.’s Legal Technologies Partner Program, giving DRM clients access to a wide array of computer forensic, electronic and paper discovery services.

DRM’s clients will benefit from Kroll Ontrack’s extensive experience in computer forensic, electronic and paper discovery services to address critical workplace issues including fraud, embezzlement, and harassment investigations in an efficient and timely manner.

DRM's Managing Partner and Executive Investigator Kent Perkins says, “Computer forensics has become an extremely valuable tool in identifying and securing crucial evidence in workplace criminal investigations. Without computer forensics, many of our cases may not have been successfully prosecuted. Becoming a member of Kroll Ontrack’s Partner Program affords us a dynamic relationship with the largest computer forensics provider in the world.”

Patricia Kotze, also a Managing Partner and Executive Investigator, explained, "Increasingly, the cases we investigate require recovery of deleted information and to “mirror” hard drives for evidence. The demand has greatly increased for electronic evidence and legally-performed technology business services as an adjunct to DRM’s corporate undercover investigation and risk mitigation services. It requires great expertise to stay abreast of nearly 25 varieties of hardware platform and media types, involving no less than 20 types of operating system structures, nearly 50 software programs and at least 29 various programming languages currently used in our clients’ data systems. Computer forensics is a dynamic, fluid industry, so it’s comforting to know that Kroll Ontrack is recognized in Federal and other courts not just as certified experts, but as the industry’s leader among electronic evidence experts.”

Ramos continued, “As a member of Kroll Ontrack’s Partner Program, we are now able to extend our range of services by integrating complementary products and service solutions outside the primary scope of our business focus. As major service providers to more than 500 of the nation’s leading companies, and the top labor and employment law attorneys nationwide, we believe in structuring long-lasting partnerships that deliver true value to our clients and friends.”
