The proliferation of internal investigations in the context of Compliance has caused some legislation in our environment to regulate the means, forms and modes in which an internal investigation must be carried out. Immediately problems of a procedural nature -evidence- and the rights of those involved in the investigation -fundamental rights- that, on occasions, overlap with the rights of the company that tries to avoid illicit behavior, from which criminal liability may arise of the legal person.

Technology is one of the most necessary tools for obtaining evidence in internal investigations. Its use, to a large extent, will depend on respecting current legislation on obtaining evidence, but there are many other issues that vary enormously in a short time due to the dizzying evolution of technology. From remote access to computer equipment or mobile phones, access to social networks, video calls and endless emerging systems that can help us when obtaining information for an internal investigation. Also issues related to access to data stored in the cloud or on inaccessible servers, or even in other non-cooperative countries. All these issues will be addressed in this session from the technical and legal point of view.
