Digital forensics & employee data theft: what to know

The webinar is free to all attendees



On Oct. 28 at 1:00 EDT, Envista Forensics will be sponsoring a webinar presentation titled “Digital Forensics in Intellectual Property Theft Litigation.”

Jason Conley, who is a digital forensics examiner at Envista Forensics and a recent guest star Canadian Security‘s On the Clock“, will be the speaker. With a background in computer forensic services and cyber-investigation support, Conley’s presentation will take an in-depth look at what happens when an employee steals sensitive data from a company it can cause irreparable harm to the reputation and finances of that business.

As the webinar aims to demonstrate, when events such as these occur, there is recourse available. In the process of performing a digital forensics examination, it can be determined what data was taken, how was taken and who took it.

According to Envista Forensics, data theft can take multiple forms, which include: stealing data internally from company computers, mobile phones or using personal devices to store work product. Data can also be exfiltrated from a company externally after an employee has left the organization by connecting to shared drives and cloud accounts.

Whether intellectual property was stolen using complex means, or through a simple exfiltration by emailing sensitive data to personal email accounts or uploading it to personal cloud storage, these methods all leave forensic artifacts on electronic devices that can be utilized as evidence in litigation.

The event is free to all attendees.
