Learn why you need a dedicated e-discovery professional on staff — even if you only do limited in-house litigation response.
Of course, we know that e-discovery technology is important — it’s what empowers corporations to move their litigation response processes in house to improve efficiencies. As data volumes continue to explode, so does the need to control the rising costs — and security vulnerabilities — of managing data that must be preserved, collected and reviewed. And, with ever-increasing security threats, businesses are constantly on guard against hackers and other security breaches.
While moving in house was a poor option when litigation response technology was expensive, poorly integrated and difficult to use — that’s all changed. Today, recent improvements in software, particularly cloud-based solutions, have made the switch to in-house e-discovery both secure and affordable.
Yet defensible, high-quality e-discovery isn’t just about the tools you use; it’s also about the people wielding those tools. Even with intuitive and easy-to-access technology, there’s more to e-discovery than preserving, collecting and reviewing data in each individual matter. There’s an urgent need for corporations to develop and maintain defensible strategies and institutional knowledge that can carry over from one case to the next.
This is where having the right people makes all the difference.
