The New Normal for Cartel & Second Request Investigations

In April, 62% of U.S. employees worked from home according to Gallup, reflecting a global migration to remote environments as the COVID-19 pandemic spread. Many companies were inadequately prepared for the speed and scale of this migration and the choices these organizations and their employees made will have a long-term impact on investigations over the next five years, including:

  • How to identify and preserve emerging data sources for employee and customer communication
  • Implementing information governance policies for continued remote work
  • Negotiating collection processes and formats with government regulators
