Daniel Pelc is Senior Consultant, eDiscovery Management, at NightOwl Discovery.
His responsibilities include helping NightOwl’s clients with the management of mobile devices and data in anticipation of, or in reaction to, discovery demands for it.
In this video interview, Daniel Pelc said that mobile is now the primary means of communication for business, bringing great benefits to organisations. With those benefits, however, come serious potential difficulties, especially when it comes to discovery.
This is partly a human problem – as with email, people tend to say the first thing which comes into their heads, and the combination of thoughtlessness and rapid communication causes real difficulties.
In addition, mobile data is hard to protect and to collect, not least because the sources are so varied. People switch technologies, by upgrading either the software applications or the hardware, without necessarily thinking about preserving existing data.
Part of NightOwl’s eDiscovery management services includes helping clients with their mobile devices and data to put them in the best position to react quickly and appropriately when eDiscovery demands arise.
