Global consulting firm Berkeley Research Group (BRG) has announced that its Cyber Operations and Incident Response team is teaming up with blockchain data platform Chainalysis.

BRG helps leading organizations advance in three key areas: disputes and investigations, corporate finance, and performance improvement and advisory. Headquartered in California with offices around the world, the company is an integrated group of experts, industry leaders, academics, data scientists and professionals working across borders and disciplines.

Chainalysis provides data, software, services, and research to government agencies, exchanges, financial institutions, and insurance and cybersecurity companies in over 70 countries. Its data platform powers investigation, compliance, and risk management tools that have been used to solve some of the world’s most high-profile cyber criminal cases and grow consumer access to cryptocurrency safely.

The investigative partner agreement provides clients of both companies expanded access to market-leading tools, data and experts who have extensive experience in investigating cryptocurrency-related activities.

“Our agreement with Chainalysis ensures BRG’s clients not only have access to our deep technical understanding of cryptocurrency and expertise in navigating the legal system, but also will benefit from our deeper integration with Chainalysis’ data, tools and training services,” said Christopher Tarbell, a former FBI Special Agent and leader of BRG’s Cyber Operations team. “Our partnership also ensures BRG’s experts will be certified in the latest cryptocurrency investigative techniques as cryptocurrency-related litigation continues to increase.”

“Chainalysis’ partnership with BRG’s Cyber Operations team will offer advanced tools, capabilities and training to customers globally, further helping government agencies investigate illicit activity and help grow trust in the cryptocurrency industry,” said Gurvais Grigg, Public Sector CTO for Chainalysis and former Assistant Director for the FBI Laboratory, one of the largest and most respected crime labs in the world. “As digital assets continue to see further adoption, the ability to understand and execute investigations utilizing crypto is of the utmost importance.”
