Investigations, Computer Forensics and e-Discovery - A Primer for Every Banking Institution
Forensics has become a hot topic for a variety of internal factors, including the importance of the Internet to everyday business and, with it, the rise of electronic fraud.

Externally, financial institutions especially feel regulatory heat in the form of FFIEC GLBA Notification Rule, SEC/NASD Rule 3010 and even he recent VISA/Mastercard PCI requirements, all of which put a premium on forensic and e-discovery capabilities. Add to those pressures recent US litigation trends and the new federal e-discovery rules, and you see why this topic has risen to the top of organizational agendas.

Register for this webinar to learn:

  • How to build or enhance a forensics program;
  • Proper forensics methodology;
  • Federal rules and regulatory requirements that underscore the need for forensics and e-discovery;
  • Learn the steps investigators have used to crack tough cases.

Background

Forensics Defined
Computer forensics is the use of investigative techniques to provide digital evidence of an activity, generally in conjunction with a criminal investigation or civil litigation in cases that include:
Employee internet abuse
Unauthorized disclosure of corporate information;
Industrial espionage;
Incident Response;
Fraud.

The forensics process entails:

Preservation of Evidence -- Adherence to a set of procedures that address security, authenticity and chain-of-custody.
Data Analysis -- The ability to locate and recover previously inaccessible documents and files through computer forensic processes.
Analysis of User Activity-- Reports on all user activity including, but not limited to, electronic mail, Internet and Intranet files accessed, files created and deleted, and user access times.

In-House or Outsourced?
One of the key questions to be tackled in this webinar is whether to establish your own forensics program, or outsource it to a third-party service provider. Our presenters will explore the factors that go into this decision, including how to:

Form an internal steering committee of key constituents to evaluate your decisions;
Establish external relationships with FBI and independent forensics experts;
Create an e-discovery policy that can be handed down either to an in-house or outsourced forensics team.
