Speaker and Presentation Information

Presentation: Computer Forensics for Employment Issues - Many people know that they can use computer forensics to find out who stole what and when. What people don’t consider is how computer forensics can help in other employment issues such as terminations, tracking overtime pay and document authentications. The presentation will include real world case studies so one can see how forensics can be applied to a range of employment issues that a business may face.
