How many emails have you written and responded to today? What about this week? This month? This year?

The answer is probably more than you can count.

In many cases, face-to-face interactions are declining while digital communications such as email, instant messaging and text messaging are on the rise. While these more virtual interactions do make it easier to do business anytime and anywhere, they are also a potential breeding ground for white collar crime.

Today’s executives need to be increasingly aware of their communications and interactions in order to avoid finding themselves in legal hot water.

To learn more about the growing white collar crime trend, we turned to Stuart Gasner, former federal prosecutor and senior partner at Keker & Van Nest LLP. Stuart sheds some light on why we’ve seen this area of crime increase substantially in recent years as well as provides some practical advice on “how to not become a white collar criminal.”
