Written by Sarah Aston on 8 December 2014 in News

Keith Foggon was appointed as the first director of digital forensics and intelligence at the Competition and Market Authority’s (CMA’s) Cartels and Criminal Group (CCG), on Friday 5 December. 

As director, Foggon will be responsible for developing the CMA’s digital forensics and intelligence capabilities and will support case and project teams across the CMA.

The new digital forensics and intelligence function aims to advance the CMA’s use of digital evidence and internet investigations into mergers, markets and regulated industries and will advance the CMA’s capability to enforce competition and consumer law.

Foggon will report to the senior director of cartels and criminal, Stephen Blake, and the executive director of enforcement - Sonya Branch.

Of Foggon’s appointment, Branch said: “Keith’s appointment will further build the CMA’s range of intelligence and investigative capabilities and depth of expertise in this fast-developing and crucial aspect of our enforcement.

“Keith brings with him an exceptional level of experience, such as having been the architect of the FCA’s current digital forensics and intelligence function.”

The CMA also announced that they will be recruiting for additional enforcement roles from January 2015.

Roles will be advertised on the Civil Service Jobs website.
