Forensics: The Foundation of eDiscovery

December 1, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

No, it’s not CSI… but learn why lawyers & ediscovery practitioners should deploy basic forensic principles at the outset of every matter.

Join us for a one hour webinar on eDiscovery Day where our panel of experts in Forensic Technology, eDiscovery, Software and Government explain why a solid approach and simple considerations to collecting data for eDiscovery are required on every matter to avoid lost time, cost and spoilage of useful data.

Learn about the fundamentals of computers and data management (what happens when I create, move or delete a file on a computer or the cloud) and why it is imperative to understand this to run a dispute involving electronic documents. What commercial decision making should I adopt when a matter starts and how do I get my client on board? And what happens in the real world, what have our experts seen, what do the courts and regulators say you must do at a minimum?

Take away 5 key tips for getting evidence and data management for eDiscovery right.
