FTI on the collection of mobile device data for eDiscovery and investigations

FTI TechnologyThis is my second post of today about the need to collect data from mobile devices for eDiscovery and investigations which gives some idea how important the subject is becoming.

FTI has a new page about mobile device data with the subheading No longer tomorrow’s problem. The reality is that it has been a potential problem for a long time – one of my predictions for 2015 was that a lawyer somewhere would lose a case or face a negligence claim for failure even to think about the subject.

Part of the page covers FTI’s own services in this area with forensic laboratories in New York, Chicago, Washington DC, San Francisco, Los Angeles, London, Hong Kong and Shanghai. The Asia-Pacific region is full of constant activity on this subject because of the very high usage of mobile devices.

The page also includes some helpful graphics – FTI is getting very good at demonstrating its points with pictures. It ends, ominously for some, with references to cases in which parties have been sanctioned for the mismanagement of mobile data.
