Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Investigations

6 July 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Changing technology, changing tactics: how the investigator can respond to the ever-evolving landscape of employee communications


Investigations routinely require the recovery and analysis of relevant electronic devices for evidence of activity and communications.  Those communications have long since migrated from corporate email, to a variety of encrypted messaging apps and beyond with data that can be held in multiple locations, both physical and cloud based.  This is further complicated when an organisation allows employees to carry confidential, proprietary, client or sensitive information.

Battling these complexities to give the investigator the greatest chance of obtaining the best evidence without inadvertently falling foul of data governance legislation requires a mix of tactics.  In this webinar sponsored by Ankura we will discuss:

  • The evolving web of communication methods
  • Requesting an employee’s device for examination
  • What is the legal stance – consent versus refusal
  • Forensic capture and analysis – in person and remote
  • How to forensically secure social media messages
  • Aggregating multiple data sources for review
  • The unique challenges of Bring Your Own Device (and how to overcome them)
  • Data governance when moving data/reviewing across borders
