LUNCHTIME TODAY - The Forensic Fruits of a Labor (& Employment) Client

CLE - The Forensic Fruits of a Labor (& Employment) Client

Hosted by the Cybersecurity Committee of the Business Law Section

Digital forensics came about nearly twenty-five years ago as society moved into a digital age. Since that time, the field has greatly matured through evolving technology. With the advent of laptops, smart phones, dense storage systems, GPS, social media networks and the Internet of Things, digital forensics has continually reinvented its tools and
techniques to remain on the cutting edge of technological advances.

In much the same way, labor and employment law has continually evolved as discovery requires the review
of a variety of data and potential evidentiary sources. As clients utilize social media messenger applications, smartphones with encryption capabilities, cloud-based backup systems and a variety of email platforms, it is necessary to remain abreast of how the rules of evidence and evolving case law interact with a changing digital landscape.

Featured speakers will provide a review and dynamic discussion of the following:

  • Employment law evidentiary standards and obligations as related to digital evidence
    • Hearsay exceptions
    • Relevancy issues
    • Defining discovery scope
    • Spoliation pitfalls
    • Duty to produce and preserve
    • Authentication
  • Forensically defensible procedures for preserving data
    • How data is accessed and preserved
    • Where to look for relevant data
      • Cloud backups
      • Mobile devices
      • Email accounts
      • Social media accounts
    • Reporting on evidence for courtroom use
    • Trends in technology of which to be aware, including
      • Social media platform messages
      • Smartphone message applications
      • Deleted data
      • Email collection
  • Real-world cases and examples
