Stroz Friedberg Promotes Seth Berman and Erin Nealy Cox

Stroz Friedberg has announced the promotions of Seth P. Berman and Erin Nealy Cox to the position of Executive Managing Director and their appointment to the firm’s Executive Management Group, which sets strategy and policy for the firm…”Our Executive Management Group is truly enhanced with the addition of these two dynamic industry leaders,” says Stroz Friedberg Co-President Eric Friedberg. “As our clients continue to turn to us with larger, more complex, and more global problems, we know that Seth and Erin will valuably assist us in scaling our infrastructure, solutions, and talent to meet our clients’ challenges.”

Mr. Berman and Ms. Nealy Cox have proven their ability to add value in this fashion. After the firm acquired London based Data Genetics International (“DGI”), the UK’s largest digital forensics firm, Mr. Berman oversaw the corporate integration process and now – with Julian Parker, the former CEO of DGI – leads Stroz Friedberg’s tremendous growth in the UK and on the European Continent. Although based in London, Mr. Berman also continues to provide stewardship to our Boston office, which he established in 2007. Mr. Berman is an expert in cybercrime investigations, data breach response, and cross-border data privacy. He lectures and publishes regularly in these areas. Prior to joining Stroz Friedberg, Mr. Berman served as a lead prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Computer Crimes Unit for the District of Massachusetts.

Ms. Nealy Cox established the firm’s Dallas office in 2008 after leaving the Dallas U.S. Attorney’s Office, where she had coordinated and prosecuted complex cybercrime cases as the Office’s Computer Hacking and Intellectual Property Coordinator. Since then, she has quickly risen to be recognized as a prominent Dallas business woman, as most recently recognized by the Dallas Business Journal which identified her among the 2010 Women in Business. Ms. Nealy Cox has helped major corporate clients in Texas and beyond solve their most serious data breach, computer security, P.C.I., and electronic discovery problems. Her firm-wide contributions have included overseeing all of Stroz Friedberg’s marketing and public relations functions.
