'CSI' IT: Forensic security skills for IT professionals
TV shows such as "CSI" have popularized the world of digital forensics, glamorizing the field and piquing the interest of a generation of graduates and career-movers writes Kevin Waugh.
Because of this, it would be natural to assume that most businesses could now call on an extensive pool of talented experts in the forensics field capable of investigating technical security issues, such as the source of internal intellectual property leaks, or the theft of sales books by ex-employees moving to rival companies.

Hood will cause employers to once again question whether this type of thing could happen at their workplaces. I can expect calls from clients, as I have in the past after events like this, asking me what they need to do to make their workplaces 100 percent safe.
