WHO WE ARE
We believe in the power of delivering the right technology solutions at the right time—solutions that are advanced enough to manage vast amounts of structured and unstructured data from disparate sources, provide nuanced insight in real time, reduce human error and increase efficiency, and ensure multi-jurisdictional regulatory compliance.
For more than two decades, Forensic Risk Alliance (FRA) has leveraged technology to address our clients’ complex business needs in the course of many of the world's most high-profile investigations and legal, regulatory and compliance matters. Our experience has taught us that corporates facing high-stakes challenges like these need highly customized technology solutions that can outpace the ever-evolving data and technology landscape.
We have launched FRA Pulse to place our clients at the forefront of technology innovation.
FRA Pulse seeks to promote and educate the newest technology solutions with potential to advance innovation and improve technology evolution across all aspects of business operations. We have dual missions: The first is to focus on the consequences of innovation and technological transformation, as well as global regulation governing technology and data. The second is to provide a space for the next generation of innovators to collaborate with senior tech leaders and corporate veterans to continue to create solutions.
FRA Pulse will collect global expertise and ideas, and mobilize breaking technology solutions. It will also act as a research institute performing exploration and advocacy concerning technology, ethics, and culture. FRA Pulse will not create policy, rather it will concentrate on addressing global technology issues and deficiencies that challenge business leaders, explore and vet the latest innovations from participating global technology elites, and offer them a forum to collaborate, speak, and educate.
