Guidance Software is giving a webinar on 11 December at 11am PST with the title Top Five eDiscovery Recommendations for 2013. The presenters are Daniel Lim, Vice President and Assistant General Counsel at Guidance Software and Bryant Bell, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Guidance Software.
They will talk about the eDiscovery challenges facing businesses in 2013, including:
• Legal hold automation
• A holistic approach to e-discovery
• Leveraging the cloud
• Policies for preservation
• Gaining control over complex litigation
These challenges are not unique to US companies – the rest of us may not have the peculiarly onerous obligations of preservation and legal hold which US companies face, but it is still vital to preserve evidence likely to to be required, and there is in addition is a growing need for companies and their lawyers to know what data they have got and to be able to discuss it with opponents and with the court.
This will become of increasing interest in the UK as the new rules come into effect in April 2013 requiring such discussions in all multitrack cases except personal injury cases. How will you comply with those obligations without some effective (and cost-effective) means of identifying and securing data?
