Proactive and Reactive eDiscovery
Source: Kazeon Systems
The pervasive use of electronic records has resulted in a spectrum of new legal rules regarding the retention and production of information. Organizations that face constant litigation, multiple legal matters with overlapping custodians, are moving from using third-party service providers to in-sourcing the e-discovery infrastructure in order to predict and control costs while reducing overall risk and exposure. In fact, Forrester Research estimates that by 2011, organizations in North America will spend nearly $5 billion on e-discovery technologies. The purpose of this paper is to highlight key legal discovery and litigation preparation issues affecting organizations today, outline best practice areas for corporations seeking to protect themselves by reducing risk, and provide an overview of how Kazeon can help address these new and evolving legal discovery challenges.
