Where businesses are exposed to criminal activities, there is a need to prevent them through appropriate security measures; equally important is the need to carry out a forensic analysis of the attack and ensure that the perpetrators are appropriately handled. A requisite first step in this direction is the collection, preservation, analysis and presentation of the conclusion to law enforcement or judiciary. The volume, complexity and delicate nature of relevant electronic evidence require strict protocols, expensive hardware and software tools, and experience to achieve optimal results. Properly managed, a computer forensic expert will focus on the relevant electronic discovery targets, lower the eventual cost of litigation and increase the probability of a favorable outcome. This one day workshop aims to help participants gain practical knowledge of these.
