Continuing our security theme, the BCS Jersey International Section is pleased to invite you to our event, Computer Misuse in the workplace A guide to the forensic and HR pitfalls’ with our guest speaker David Horn.

This event is suitable for anyone with an interest in data security or compliance.

When a situation involving the misuse of IT equipment occurs, it is all too easy to try and solve it yourself. However, this approach can go very wrong from both an HR and a legal perspective. If you are collating digital, forensic evidence, you only have one chance to get it right and it is important not to squander it. Once that chance is gone, there is no going back as you may well have lost evidential integrity and continuity, not to mention creating an HR nightmare.

This presentation will guide you through the dos and donts and ultimately the best way to make use of your one chance. It will also touch on what preventative measures are available for the HR department.
