IT Governance

Internal Investigations and Government Subpoenas (Peak Performance)

Course Overview
With federal and state governments becoming more aggressive about prosecuting corporations for wrongdoings, more and more companies are finding themselves under scrutiny, whether they did anything wrong or not. Here, Aidan O’Connor, an attorney with the law firm Pashman Stein and a former Assistant U.S. Attorney in the District of New Jersey, explains what IT and business professionals should do if they receive a subpoena. He also makes clear why and how companies should conduct their own internal investigation, should they become aware of potential wrongdoing.
