As Malcolm Frazer says: "The difference between winning and losing a case is often just a matter of finding and using the digital evidence generated from the moment someone clocks in for the day."
Evidence in the Digital Age
Meridian Training's 'Evidence in the Digital Age' is the only course focusing specifically on this tricky but abundant evidentiary field. The course shows delegates where this information is to be found, how it may be obtained, how it may be led as evidence in hearings, what it proves, when it must be rebutted by the other side and the weight it has. The objective is to allow parties to a dispute to use digital evidence effectively to prove their version. Essential for loss control, HR & IR practitioners, litigators and shop stewards.
Meridian Training uses highly participative material and only the best trainers with relevant litigation experience.

About 'Evidence in the Digital Age'
Much evidence of wrong-doing can be sourced from records generated by computers. These may be documents, videos, audio files or photographs. These may also be records generated in the ordinary course of business such as call logs or the meta-data indicating how computer technology was used.

The course is highly interactive. The facilitators have experience using digital evidence in misconduct proceedings and delegates will be exposed to a range of role-plays, case studies and group discussions that will enrich their understanding. The course deals with the legal framework, considers various tactical uses of digital evidence and provides delegates with information on how to use software applications to organise and present copious amounts of data in an understandable way.
