      Digital Evidence as a Cornerstone of Today’s Internal Investigations


      The evidence underlying today’s internal investigations is increasingly found in digital format – deleted emails or webmail fragments, documents saved to a DropBox account, spreadsheets downloaded to a USB device, system logs on a perpetrator’s computer. The existence of digital evidence can make investigations even more difficult, raising issues of authenticity, privacy, and spoliation. However, focused forensic analysis of digital evidence provides a foundation and context for interviews and assists the investigator in untangling conflicting accounts and changing memories.
