Eric D. Harris Named Managing Director for Stroz Friedberg's Dallas Office

International digital forensics, cybercrime response and electronic discovery firm Stroz Friedberg is pleased to announce the addition of data-intrusion expert Eric D. Harris as managing director in the firm's Dallas office.

In his new position at Stroz Friedberg, Harris supervises digital forensics, cybercrime investigations and e-discovery in criminal, civil, regulatory and internal corporate matters.

He also handled claims by card brand associations and class-action plaintiffs in addition to providing guidance in state and federal regulatory inquiries.

Harris previously worked as legal and compliance vice president for Morris Plains, N.J.-based Fiserv EFT, where he advanced Fiserv's interests in the TJX data breach, which is believed to have affected thousands of consumers' credit card information.

"Eric's real-world experience responding to major data breaches and computer intrusions makes him a perfect fit at our firm and a valuable asset for our clients," said Stroz Friedberg Executive Managing Director and Deputy General Counsel Erin Nealy Cox, who heads the firm's Dallas offices.
