In today’s legal environment, corporate clients often find themselves in situations where they need litigation support or to conduct an internal investigation of an employee or management as a whole. Clients finding themselves in these crisis situations often ask about the next steps and what information is needed.

BDO USA, LLP invites you and your colleagues to join us for a roundtable discussion on today’s challenging corporate environment. This session will use case studies to discuss and illustrate the process and strategies employed by accountants and computer forensic professionals. We will highlight how they work together to perform internal investigations, what the requirements are for data substantiation and computer forensic analysis,  the red flags of employee misconduct, and preventative controls related to misconduct.
