I am not generally much bothered about capturing breaking news, preferring to let it simmer a while before I pass it on.
Yesterday’s announcement that CY4OR has acquired eOrigin and taken founder Nick Pollard onto its management team to manage its eDiscovery department is, however, worth passing on straight away. For the moment, I have little to add to the what is said on CY4OR’s blog and on eOrigin’s website, but I am seeing CY4OR’s Bethan Williams and Nick Pollard in London next week and will find out more then.
eOrigin last appeared in these pages at the beginning of December as the Digital Reef partner who won Digital Reef’s deal with BDO LLP – see UK accountancy firm BDO LLP selects Digital Reef for its eDiscovery work. CY4OR turn up here quite often as I pass on their useful suggestions for both reactive and anticipatory control of data forensics and disclosure.
I will come back with more about this story shortly.
