Social networks, like Facebook and Twitter -- as well as other cloud computing services -- are the focus of many official investigations, including those conducted by corporate HR departments and by state and local governments. The networks are bursting with evidence relevant to disputes, lawsuits, tax audits, regulatory compliance and many other inquiries. But intrusive investigations into these networks raise practical, privacy, and confidentiality issues. In this presentation, you will learn the details of and lessons from recent cases, involving such diverse topic areas as regulatory inquiries, police investigations, employment disputes and intellectual property lawsuits. You will learn the risks that any kind of investigator faces in social/cloud media, as well as methods to manage that risk. Mr. Wright will share tips for evidence collection so it is more likely to be accepted and believed as evidence in court or in other official proceedings.  Ben will draw lessons about ethics applicable to all modern professionals.

The participants will be enjoy participatory dialog in live, interactive engagement format with the materials and each other.
