Findability and Fraud Investigations

IA_013 Podcast (mp3) Opens Audio File in Browser

We sit down with Chris Pierre from Glencastle Security to discuss the importance of findability when working on fraud investigations. Sorting through enormous volumes of data in order to create a logical flow of information is paramount when building such cases. Chris outlines the variety of tasks involved in this process including the tools he uses such as X1, Access, and Excel to organize all of this data in presenting each case. He also illustrates how findability extends beyond data to people; intellectual; and personal property.

The White paper, Best Practices to Deal with Threats to Your Intellectual Property in the Supply Chain is the paper we discussed in some detail. Check it out!

Chris also discusses the following in our conversation:

The IA Summit will be held in Las Vegas this year! What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, so I guess that means we won't be Podcasting any of the events, eh? ;-)
