The Uniform Code of Military Justice is the law that governs a service member's conduct. Soldiers are required to adhere to the codes in the UCMJ at all times, but what about cyber space? What about face book and twitter? Melissa Anderson brings us the scoop on what is expected of soldiers in a social media setting.
The role of digital evidence on an increasingly wide range of insurance claim disputes continues to grow. For many insurers, the challenge of keeping up with changes in technology, trends in social media and the proliferation of data is matched by the constantly evolving legal framework that affects how insurance claims involving digital evidence can proceed. In this webinar, RMC members from across Canada review the latest legal developments in online investigations, digital evidence and coverage requirements and outline how insurers can effectively and safely proceed with these files.
The webinar addresses many of the common questions insurers face when dealing with digital evidence including:

•What devices are available and likely to be carrying critical evidence?

Production of workplace evidence
Matthew Hiltz, Cox & Palmer, Fredericton (NB)
•How intrusive may your investigative techniques be?
•Can employers monitor the claimant’s online activity?
