Event Details

Computer Forensics/Corporate Compliance

In today's business environment there is an ever growing need to haveInternet access on most employee desktops.  The challenge is meeting this need while managing the risks involved.  Providing a corporate computer with Internet access exposes that asset to malware, which ultimately exposes your internal network to such threats.  And as valuable as the Internet is to an employee, it also has the potential to contribute to loss of productivity.  In order to address this most companies impose OS level policies that prohibit certain activities on the company's asset.  Some end users however will invariably seek to ignore acceptable use policies or circumvent controls put in place by IT.  Is your company prepared to respond to these incidents appropriately?  Do you have the necessary legal requirements in place to allow you to respond properly?  Are you logging the necessary information as a matter of standard business practice?  Do you have the computer forensic tools and trained personnel to conduct a proper compliance investigation that will stand up to the scrutiny of a civil process?  Sgt. Jacques Boucher of the RCMP's technological crime unit has been working in the field of computer forensics since 2002 and has been a police officer since 1989.  He will explore some of these topics over the course of his presentation and provide you with a greater understanding of the world of computer forensics and how you can apply it in a corporate environment.
