Capsicum Group, LLC, a technology consulting firm specializing in digital forensics, cybersecurity, and e-discovery, has been busy with a flurry of cybersecurity and digital forensics work in the context of class action lawsuits. Such lawsuits require expert review of digital evidence, including but not limited to: digital backups, website information, programs and databases.

Most recently, a class of consumers filed a lawsuit against a chain of retail stores after they allegedly received ads via SMS text message that they either opted out of, or had not provided express written consent to receive, Capsicum was hired to review the retail chain’s digital records in order to forensically as well as technically analyze and compare relevant metadata, customer list backups, and the actual JavaScript and database tables.

The Capsicum Group digital forensic experts continue to examine, authenticate, and testify regarding such lawsuit findings, assisting in determining digital evidence for large and intricate class action lawsuits. Class action lawsuits within the context of consumer privacy handle issues across digital platforms, as businesses expand customer communications through social media, mobile devices, and email. The variety of laws and federal entities that regulate consumer data privacy, including the Federal Trade Commission, Securities and Exchange Commission, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, and the Telemarketing Sales Rule, just to name a few, continue to apply.

Capsicum Group’s team of professionals are equipped to take on the most complex projects, from devising cybersecurity procedures, responding to hackings to performing throughout the U.S. cities including New York, Washington D.C., Ft. Lauderdale, San Francisco and Philadelphia, as well  international locales.
