The Serious Fraud Office has appointed Josh Ellis, a former Regional Director of Forensic Services from PricewaterhouseCoopers to the new post of Chief Information Officer.

Josh takes on the leadership for delivery of the SFO's Information Technology services and the SFO's Digital Forensic Unit. The DFU provides a world-class digital forensics capability used not only by the SFO, but other law enforcement agencies, including the City of London Police. This unit specialises in electronic evidence seizure and analysis in support of the investigation and prosecution of serious and complex fraud.

Prior to joining the SFO Josh Ellis led PwC's Forensic Technology practice from Moscow and Prague for four years, covering operations in 27 countries. He has extensive experience in advising clients on due diligence and compliance reviews associated with the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. He has worked on corporate investigations and litigation support. His industry experience includes telecommunications, banking, manufacturing and the automotive sector.

Commenting on his appointment the SFO's Director, Richard Alderman, said: "Josh comes to us with the experience necessary to further enhance our investigative systems. We believe having the ability to interrogate the high volumes of electronic evidence captured from fraudsters is vital in the SFO's continuing fight against serious fraud. I am delighted he has decided to join us."

Josh Ellis said: "The SFO continues to build its reputation as the forward looking investigative and prosecution authority. The need to maintain cutting-edge technology and fully utilise electronic evidence is a priority at the highest level in the organisation. I am here to make this a reality."
