Greg Mason is a Founding Partner of FRA and its chief technology officer. His expertise lies in database architecture and programming, software design, mass data analysis, data mining, and data forensics for the purposes of investigations, disputes and litigation.
Greg led the FRA data governance team supporting Airbus in a multi-year, multinational investigation, reporting to four investigative authorities: UK Serious Fraud Office (SFO), the US Department of Justice (DOJ), the US Department of State (DOS) and French Parquet National Financier (PNF). His expertise was instrumental in designing and developing a bespoke and market leading data governance technology solution, utilising advanced technologies including machine learning. The solution was critical in facilitating the production and examination of tens of millions of documents while navigating state secrecy laws, national blocking statutes and various data privacy regulations across more than a dozen regions. FRA’s data governance strategy enabled timely disclosure to the authorities and ultimately withstood rounds of scrutiny from the national prosecutors.
Greg was the key technical analyst on a high-profile FCPA matter where he analysed a global oil services company’s internal financial database, comprising over 21 million transactions made in over 25 countries, for presentation to SEC investigators. Greg has served as an expert in multiple cases for the US DOJ FATCA/Swiss Banks programme. He provided data analytics advice to the independent examiner of several Swiss banks. He has also advised a number of complex US-EU regulatory investigations and litigations, where he developed e-discovery strategy compliant with European privacy laws for data.
In his role as CTO, Greg oversees FRA’s advanced AI technology-powered solutions designed to keep pace with innovation, proactively monitor risks, handle increased and varied data loads and meet multi-jurisdictional regulatory requirements. He is responsible for ensuring FRA remains nimble and highly secure in order to deliver data-driven solutions for clients’ governance needs both quickly and efficiently.
