Nardello & Co. was engaged by a Fortune 500 company to investigate anonymous allegations, sent to its board of directors, that a senior executive had engaged in inappropriate conduct which could damage the company’s reputation and subject it to potential litigation.
To investigate these allegations, we conducted an in-depth online investigation, inclusive of social media, during which we captured all evidence that could relate to the allegations or help identify the whistleblower or potential witnesses. Appropriate computers and electronic devices were forensically imaged and analyzed in an attempt to identify any pertinent communications.
No incriminating information was uncovered in the course of the online review or the computer forensic investigation. Once relevant corporate personnel were interviewed, the company concluded that the allegations against the executive were unsubstantiated.
