Data management expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience in computer science, software engineering, databases, computer forensics, and/or information technology. A data management expert witness needs to not only have technical expertise, but should also feel confident explaining technology and processes to a judge and jury. A forensic expert can analyze devices and software to determine if there is evidence to reveal infringement or theft.
Information and data management are used by companies to create policies, procedures, and best practices surrounding obtained data. In order to achieve this, the data needs to be understandable, trusted, and accessible. A data management expert will understand security and privacy issues, utilize visualization and data analytics methods, and verify that the information is shareable with key decision makers.
Often, matters requiring data management expert witness services involve:
Litigation support services by a data management specialist could include hardware or software analysis, prior art search, deposition, expert report preparation, expert opinion, and courtroom testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a data management professional with prior expert witness experience.
