Update: Since the publication of this press release, Mindcrest has updated its branding and now goes by DWF.

Mindcrest, the legal operations division of DWF Group and pioneer of the alternative legal service provider (ALSP) market, today announced its new partnership with Canopy, the global leader in AI-powered privacy and data breach software.

Mindcrest’s service offerings are based on a combination of talented people and the best available technology, making its cyber incident services offering with Canopy a perfect fit. By challenging traditional practices, Mindcrest can introduce innovative solutions that improve cost management without compromising quality.

“Our approach is catered to meet the needs not just of cyber counsel and insureds, but also insurance carriers,” said Rob Marks, CEO of Mindcrest. “Canopy’s industry leading software speeds up these projects exponentially, allowing our team to deliver results faster, more accurately, and at a lower cost. It’s a best-of-all-worlds solution.”

“We’re inventing the data breach response sector in real time, so it’s quickly evolving — yet clunky attempts to use ediscovery tools for these projects still pervade among legal service providers,” said Ralph Nickl, CEO and Founder of Canopy. “By recognizing that breach response data mining requires different tech and workflows than ediscovery, Mindcrest is bringing a new caliber of cyber incident services to the market.”

Mindcrest's Cyber Incident Services (CIS) combines the latest AI and machine learning technologies with their proprietary human-in-the-loop methodology. With their deep knowledge of industry best practices, their ability to customize to each client’s preferences, their expansive metric tracking and reporting program, and their use of the world’s only purpose-built data breach response software, Mindcrest’s expert team is delivering better outcomes for their clients.
