All companies have a legal and moral obligation to protect their customers' personal data, let alone protect their commercially sensitive information.  Data leakage remains, however, one of the biggest problems businesses face in today's technological world -- whether it be through poorly maintained systems, sophisticated cyber-attack or the difficult-to-detect 'insider threat'.

Most companies know they need to have secure networks in place, with up to date anti-virus and the latest patches installed. The fact remains, however, that practically every business will at some point will be touched by cyber-crime.

In the event you do become a victim, there are a myriad of issues surrounding the proper handling of electronic data that may subsequently be used as evidence in legal proceedings. If handled incorrectly vital evidence may be lost, altered or later disallowed in court.

AustCham in conjunction with the British Chamber of Commerce Thailand (BCCT) are delighted to invite members and friends to a briefing by Andrew Smith, Director of Computer Forensics Services from Orion Investigations. Andrew will provide an insight into the field of digital forensics and how it can benefit you or your company in the event you become a victim of cyber-crime.
