Over the years, advances in technology have changed the way people create, share, and store information. The preservation and collection of Electronically-Stored Information (ESI) is commonplace today. Emails, spreadsheets, presentations, memos, text, videos, and pictures can be potentially sources of data for litigation. The challenge is the variety of systems in which the data is stored. With the growth of social media, cloud-based computing, smartphone calling and messaging, the volume of data increases exponentially.
The rapid pace of data production has created significant burdens for businesses. For example, in Zubulake v. UBS Warburg, LLC, ESI was used against an employer in a wrongful termination. Similarly, the cost of identifying and locating relevant ESI has become increasingly prohibitive for law firms. Predictive Coding, or Technology Assisted Review (TAR), has emerged as an approved method to reduce the costs of e-discovery, and courts are becoming more familiar with the legal issues of collection and production of ESI. New amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure will allow for more discretion in imposing sanctions for e-discovery violations.
To minimize problems and costs relating to ESI, it’s important for companies to develop sound preservation and collection plans than include scoping of potentially relevant data sources and pragmatic collection strategies.
In this two-hour live webcast, a panel of key thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss the trends in Efficient and Effective Electronically Stored Information (ESI) Management in Mitigating Risks of E-Discovery Rule Violations. The panel of speakers will provide a general outline of best practices for companies and their professionals regarding the discovery, identification, and preservation of ESI. The speakers will also address some recent major cases that highlight the potential scope and severity of sanctions due to failure to identify and preserve ESI under the latest amendments to the FRCP regulations.
Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
- Electronically Stored Information – An Overview
- Common E-Discovery Over-sights
- Information as a Litigation Risk
- Relevant ESI Sources and Repositories
- Collecting, Restoring, and Processing Data
- Producing Responsive, Non-privileged ESI
- Choosing E-Discovery Vendors
- Maximizing Cost Efficiency
- Compliance Risk Mitigation
