In conclusion, when it comes to HR incidents and policy violations, it's crucial to maintain a fair and impartial investigative process. Relying on the internal IT department can present various challenges, including potential bias, conflicts of interest, and limited availability. By retaining an external Forensic/IR firm, organisations can ensure the integrity of their investigations, maintain employee trust, and foster a workplace culture built on transparency and accountability. While IT plays a critical role in many aspects of an organisation, HR-related investigations are best left to external experts who can provide a neutral and professional perspective in a timely manner.
