Building Bridges Between IT Shops, Legal Teams and Security Staff: Preparation and Collaboration Are Key for Successful e-Discovery
One of the toughest parts about creating an e-discovery strategy for the enterprise is that technology alone can't solve every problem. For IT executives, this means more than simply installing new search tools and email-archiving software for Exchange Server or putting processes in place that help to do whatever it takes to create a SQL Server database that can be searched quickly if there is litigation. Members should not only include IT and legal but also, in some cases, security staff, depending on how the company is structured. Especially in the case of the large decentralized enterprise, there also needs to be a lawyer who is familiar with the enterprise IT architecture and topography.
