Intelysis Corp., which provides corporate investigations, background checks and fraud detection services, has added to its team of cyber sleuths.
The firm, which among other things specializes in doing background checks on hedge fund managers, has hired Christopher Luke as a digital forensics examiner. In this capacity, Luke will work with the firm’s U.S. digital forensics team responsible and focus on analyzing and producing electronic evidence in financial/white collar fraud cases.
Luke brings over 13 years of forensic and network IT experience to Intelysis. Previously, he served as the primary forensic analyst at Internet Crimes Group Inc. in Princeton, New Jersey. Prior to that, he served as Rutgers University’s computing manager for its School of Arts & Sciences. Formerly, Luke was an infrastructure specialist for the NASD and NASDAQ.
“Chris’s stellar background in forensic and network IT make him an outstanding addition to our team,” said Jeffrey Brenner, director of U.S. operations for Intelysis. “With the proliferation of electronic devices and social networking, greater diligence is needed in preventing and identifying corporate fraud being committed in these realms.”
Intelysis Corp. is a business intelligence consulting firm headquartered in Toronto, with operations in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, London and Trinidad in the Caribbean. The firm, founded in 1997, helps to reduce and prevent the risk of fraud from elements outside and inside an organization by providing global research and analysis in corporate investigations, due diligence, employment screening, forensic accounting, fraud and security reviews, competitive intelligence and computer forensics, including due diligence for the hedge fund and venture capital communities.
