How mature is your e-Discovery Program?

Electronic Discovery (e-discovery) as a practice is becoming more critical in the litigation portfolio of an organization in the recent times due to the increased regulatory requirements, data privacy issues and legal disputes inherent to business. Failure to comply with regulatory requirements or failure to preserve or present the requested data have often attracted severe sanctions apart from causing reputational damage to companies. 

Accurately identifying, preserving, collecting and searching the large volume of data that is stored on many different storage systems and different forms, created by several employees, working in different units/departments and at diverse geographies/locations, in a legally acceptable manner, in the timeframe permitted, is a herculean task.

Electronic Discovery (E-Discovery) as a practice is becoming more critical in the Litigation portfolio of an Organization in the recent times due to the increased regulatory requirements, data privacy issues and legal disputes inherent to business.

Discovery in Legal terminology refers to a process in a Civil Litigation by which relevant information is sought, acquired, processed and presented to the required parties.  Electronic Discovery is the discovery of the Electronically Stored Information (ESI) of an Organization. The ESI of an organization can be in multiple forms such as emails, instant messages, word processing documents, spreadsheets, shared drive data, business applications data, voice data, media files, voice recordings, data on cloud and virtual environment and various other forms of unstructured data.
