Midwest-based Digital Forensics Firm “Data Narro” Launches in Milwaukee

Data Narro - Digital Forensics & E-Discovery


Milwaukee, WI— August 29, 2018 —

John Gapinski announced today the launch of Data Narro, LLC, a Milwaukee-based technology company that provides digital forensics and e-discovery services to businesses, law firms, and government agencies throughout the Midwest. The company helps its clients preserve and recover electronically stored information for the purposes of investigation, data analysis, and litigation support. Digital forensics and e-discovery is an ever-growing field, with industry sales figures expected to nearly double from $4.6 billion to $9.6 billion in the next five years (source).

Gapinski, a longtime entrepreneur, currently heads California-based Secured Retail Networks, Inc., a company that provides cybersecurity solutions for top retailers around the globe. At Data Narro, Gapinski will serve as president, splitting his time between California and Wisconsin.

“There is enormous growth potential in the field of digital forensics and e-discovery. It wasn’t so long ago that most legal discovery was paper-based. The explosion of computing platforms in the past twenty years, from mobile devices to cloud-storage platforms, means that information and evidence is more likely to only be available in digital form. We can provide our clients with superior forensics services, as well as end-to-end e-discovery solutions,” says John Gapinski.

Data Narro markets its services primarily to corporate clients and law firms, providing them solutions to recover data that others may have deemed as missing or deleted and provide tools that allow end users to search recovered information. Following accepted standards, the company maintains an evidentiary chain of custody, ensuring that the data collected is verifiable and forensically sound, ready for litigation if necessary.

Joining Data Narro will be Erik Thompson as Senior Forensics Director. Thompson, a nineteen-year veteran of the forensics industry, will oversee the forensics and litigation support operations. Over the years, Thompson has completed over 750 forensics investigations and testified as an expert witness in dozens of trials.

“Data Narro will have the capabilities and experience to handle a larger field of digital devices than most providers — this includes PC, Mac, Unix, iOS, Android, cloud storage and more. We are able to work with all major forensics and e-discovery platforms. We can even provide turnkey e-discovery platform hosting for our law firm partners,” says Thompson.

Data Narro is headquartered in the bustling Third Ward neighborhood of Milwaukee.
