Follow the data. That’s what the e-discovery experts say. But which data? And how much of it? Where can one go to follow the data, and where does one meet a roadblock? Which data, even though it may be relevant, is not worth following? And how does one keep up with the sheer explosion of data from “personal” sources like Fitbit, iPads and smart wrist watches that may appear to be outside the enterprise domain, but manage to worm their way in and co-mingle with company data?
These were the issues panelists for the “Preservation and the Evolving IT Landscape” session at the 2015 PREX Conference addressed. Emerging matters that were especially significant were “BYOD”, or Bring Your Own Device; mobile device data collection; fringe devices that may or may not be sanctioned for use by the employer; social media data; and the range of tools available to make the mapping, preservation and collection of the welter of data less intimidating.
