The proliferation of technology in the modern-day workplace presents a world of opportunity for fraudsters – and a complex challenge for fraud investigators and examiners. Desktops, laptops, smartphones, digital cameras, even watches and GPS devices can all be used to abet a fraud. They also all leave behind a digital trail.
Gathering and preserving electronic evidence requires a special set of considerations. Without a thorough understanding of digital forensics, your next move could compromise evidence or cause your findings to be inadmissible in court.
This two-day instructor-led course will introduce you to the essential knowledge you need when your investigation turns up electronic evidence. Learn best practices for evidence collection, chain of custody, expert designation and analysis. You’ll also take an in-depth look at the role of a digital forensics expert and how to effectively work with one.
