Philip Fodchuk, Principal of Urgentis Digital Crisis Solutions Inc., will present on recent cases in Western Canada where Urgentis has responded to and identified various IP and data theft scenarios. From targeted espionage by competitors, to internal employees stealing data for profit, to targeted malware incidents, all of it will be discussed.

With over 15 years of industry and legal system experience with digital crisis issues, he is a recognized expert in Digital Forensic investigations, IT security consulting, eDiscovery, and is a Court Qualified Expert in Computer Forensics and Digital Evidence.
