Behind every successful entrepreneur is an inspiring story. Joining this club is Dr. Vivienne Mee, the CEO and founder of VMGroup, who aspired to become a dynamic business tycoon at a young age. The glory of receiving Ireland’s best enterprise award in school for setting up a small business that sold little trinkets was her first step toward entrepreneurship. Fast forward to her postgraduation days, when Dr. Mee decided to do her masters in information and cybersecurity, digital forensics field caught her eye. After successfully completing her doctorate in digital forensics, she worked in two consultancies, where she led a team as a digital forensic expert. After gaining relevant experience in the management aspect of a business, Dr Mee decided to take the next step of establishing a Digital Forensics firm along with a team of experts. This led to the genesis of VMGroup.

“In the current business scenario, law firms call upon us to provide expert witness services to strengthen a case where electronic evidence is an element of the case. In other scenarios, businesses engage us in this niche area of digital forensic and cyber security where they have no in-house professionals to fulfill the role,” explains Dr. Mee. Here, VMGroup steps in as a reliable forensic partner that helps legal experts gather digital evidence, examine it, and prepare reports that could be used in courts. VMGroup caters to a wide spectrum of clients ranging from large international corporates to Irish Government Audit Departments.

To perform digital analysis efficiently, VMGroup employs the latest technology in the forensics field. “We have the capacity to forensically recover data from all devices and systems to assist IT teams and system administrators and also help in investigations,” says Dr. Mee. The company has assisted several criminals and civil law firms with forensic analysis of mobile devices.

She continues, “We also help organisations that need assistance in tracing security breaches, understanding the vulnerable data and the way it was accessed.” After conducting a digital forensic readiness assessment and gap analysis of an organisation, VMGroup provides recommendations on where enterprises need to improve their security depending on the risk factors. To provide clients with a seamless experience in problem-solving, VMGroup provides E-discovery services known as VMDiscovery. It helps in handling various procedures involved in litigation to make the discovery life cycle of a case as accessible and straightforward as possible.

When it comes to VMGroup’s fast-growing success, Dr. Mee attributes the company’s numerous accomplishments to its team of qualified consultants who have significant experience in the digital forensics arena. To further illustrate the firm’s capabilities, Dr. Mee explains how VMGroup uses its technologies and tools to retrieve information that has been wiped off the electronic devices of the individuals involved in a case, which is pivotal to the investigation or could be even used as a part of the prosecution. She also narrates how they provide assistance in tracing information from the devices of individuals that use the dark web to carry out illegal activities. “We possess the knowledge and the capabilities to bring crucial information to the fore that would help with investigations,” adds Dr. Mee. In addition, VMGroup also works with solicitors and barristers to help them understand the deeper meaning behind the technical information from the reports in order to portray it properly within the courtroom for the judge to understand.

In its endeavour to better serve clients and respond faster, VMGroup has opened offices in Dundalk, Newry and Dublin. For the road ahead, the company is set to venture into research and development. VMGroup also aims to develop forensic tools for law enforcement and forensic experts and help forensic laboratories in accelerating their research for different cases.
