Social networking and cloud storage sites are full of useable information. They can establish who knew what about an incident or issue in question, and when they knew about it. They can help attorneys determine links between people and information, and they can go beyond a company's data archives to provide more context to a case. However, social networking sites also carry risks. It is easy for subjects under investigation to change or even remove their status updates, images and video, messages and other electronically stored information. The proliferation of cloud computing means that company data may have more custodians and be harder to preserve. In this white paper, learn more about ethical information gathering, preservation methodologies, and reporting on complex cases.
