3 Ways IT Plays a Role in E-Discovery
Information technology processes are an important part of effectively managing electronically stored information (ESI) during the e-discovery process. Litigators today must comply with a number of regulations when it comes to e-discovery, and meeting these requirements should be a coordinated internal effort between the legal and IT departments.
There are 3 vital ways that IT plays a role in the e-discovery process:
- IT is responsible for ensuring that its policies and protocols support the data retention and access regulation needs of the firm
- The IT team needs to find ways to simplify data capture as firms incorporate more advanced tools and resources into the e-discovery process.
- The IT department should help the firm choose a strategic e-discovery tool that offers important features like advanced search and auto redaction.
