Biography

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.
