What Not To Do in a Digital Incident

Location: Berry Room, Nutter Center

Date/Time: May 18, 2016 / 2:45 pm – 5:00 pm

Former Police Sergeant Harold Jones will discuss “What Not To Do in a Digital Incident”. He will focus on how law enforcement can get involved and work with industry, or be hampered by industry not clearly understanding their responsibilities. Once an incident occurs, there are many things that the private non-law enforcement agency or person can do to help – or worse – greatly hinder an investigation.

Like any crime, the first brief period post incident is critical. Frequently companies, IT personnel, Security Specialists, or well meaning managers who all have good intentions can both foul up an investigation, and often place themselves at risk of being investigated. There is even potential in some cases that Tampering with Evidence can occur. (A crime) It is the hope of this discussion that we will shed some light on what to do, or more importantly what not to do. The mission is to “Do no further harm.”

Retired Police Sergeant Harold Jones has 37 years in law enforcement. He is a Medal of Valor recipient on 2 separate occasions.
