Litigation is not going away. With 90% of companies balancing multiple lawsuits at the same time, it is imperative, now more than ever, that every organization has a firm grasp on eDiscovery and the associated laws and processes. Knowing beforehand how to respond to legal requests and preparing for the inevitable will save a lot of time and money in the long run.
Every document, email, instant message and social media posts can be used as evidence in a given legal case. So, where does this data live? How can it be collected? What rights, rules and laws dictate what can or can’t, what should and shouldn’t be produced?
Authored by Lee Whitfield, FOR548: eDiscovery: Tactics for Conquering the Data Minefield course will teach students the controls put in place to govern the eDiscovery process, where and how the data is stored and how best to satisfy the collection requirements imposed upon them and their organizations. To assist in this, students will be guided on how to use specialist forensic and eDiscovery tools to collect data in a proper and defensible manner, cull and search data, and producing for review and eventual use in court.
