Investigations of Life Series
Nearly everything in our modern world is powered by vast quantities of data. How we measure, disclose and interpret data influences and informs our day to day lives, from grocery store prices to national elections.
Data alone provides measurement; a data scientist uses data to tell a story. Based on a myriad of data collection points, skilled investigators can examine human behavior in the aggregate, revealing the socioeconomic forces that shape our world. Today, the story paints a real-time picture of the global and human disruption to our ecosystems as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
Lindi Jarvis and Vincent Flores have collaborated on anti-bribery investigations for the past six years, detecting fraud and violations of the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) with advanced data and analytics and their industry expertise. In this series of articles called “Investigations of Life,” they have collaborated to use their expertise to look closer at the data behind our ordinary lives in these pandemic times.
Lindi and Vincent are two of the many professionals working on FTI Consulting’s investigations initiative. Our team of investigations experts leverage the latest technology and their deep industry experience to analyze massive disparate data sets, untangle cybersecurity breaches, conduct forensic accounting, interview key witnesses, protect organizational reputation and perform other critical functions needed to successfully resolve high-profile investigations.
