Protek International, a computer forensics, e-discovery, and investigations firm, today announced that Timothy Doris, a seven-year veteran of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”) and former Vice-President of Dispute Consulting with Duff & Phelps joined the firm as Director of Digital Investigations & e-Discovery Services.

Doris will be responsible for directing and conducting e-discovery projects, cyber investigations and computer forensics engagements, as well as being tasked with strategic direction and oversight of firm-wide “e” services and operations.

“Tim is an exciting addition to lead our team of digital investigators and e-discovery experts,” said Keith Chval, Principal at Protek and a former cyber crimes prosecutor.  “His cyber and investigative expertise can be matched by few.  Paired with his client-centric focus and e-discovery expertise gained through his private sector work, the result is superior service and value to Protek clients.”

During his seven-year tenure with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Doris conducted hundreds of forensic examinations in support of investigations ranging from complex white-collar schemes to murder and economic espionage.  He also provided critical analysis in investigations of sophisticated cyber investigations, including computer intrusions and attacks on high-value, critical infrastructure targets.  In addition, Doris was charged with quality control oversight of examiners’ work product, was tapped to play a key role in National FBI cyber initiatives, and was instrumental in leading the Chicago lab’s successful effort to attain the stringent ASCLD/LAB accreditation.

Most recently, Doris held the position of Vice President of Dispute Consulting with Duff & Phelps where, in addition to providing computer forensics and digital investigations expertise to clients and their counsel across a wide range of Intellectual Property and civil matters, he also applied his expertise to delivering timely, defensible, and cost-effective results on e-discovery projects across all phases of the EDRM.

Doris holds a Computer Engineering degree from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana and a Masters in Computer Science from DePaul University.  He also maintains several industry-recognized certifications, including Guidance Software’s EnCE and EnCEP certification for computer forensics examiners and e-discovery practitioners respectively.  He may be contacted at 630-986-8206, or via e-mail:
