KeyNorth was asked by a government department to conduct an independent examination of information of one of its employee’s suspicious activities. The employee had violated a number of policies and the Values and Ethics Code of the Public Service.

We looked over telephone records, fire-wall logs and his corporate email account. We also looked into different activities outside the Department, which supported the allegations. The results of this analysis were provided to the Departmental Security Officer and to management.

An opportunity to respond to the allegations was given to the employee, although he was eventually terminated.

In more recent, similar case we worked with the organization’s corporate security team to determine if an employee had released sensitive information about the department to other individuals. We determined that he had. He subsequently resigned from his position.
