Event Synopsis

Technology continues to be more prevalent in our lives. So much so, that the amount of data we receive or keep grows exponentially each day. Whether the data is personal or business related, it all sits at our fingertips, waiting to be discovered. When an eDiscovery matter arises, this high volume of data can make it difficult to find the treasure. Studies have shown that up to 85% of all data in a corporation is “dark data”, or Redundant-Obsolete-Trivial (ROT) data.*

During our session we will look at various topics that will introduce you to principles and processes related to eDiscovery, including:

  • Ethics and privacy concerns (PIPEDA, GDPR) in data collection and processing
  • Looking into the dark/ROT data for: document management systems, network based document repositories, smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktops and more
  • Tips for how to look at email during your analysis and review phases
  • Working with a corporation and the importance of their litigation response team
  • Recent industry highlights related to Artificial Intelligence and automation
