We’re quickly approaching another milestone in the epic implementation of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) rules associated with the Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (DFA); the expiration of a very contentious exemptive order that provided relief to cross border swap dealers (SD) and major swap participants (MSP) and foreign groups of US SDs and MSPs. If you follow the heated debate between Wall Street and the CFTC it is quite fitting that the order happens to...

When Kolon Industries recently found itself on the wrong side of a $919 million verdict, the legal department for the South Korean-based manufacturer probably started to take inventory on what it might have done differently to have avoided such a fate. While that list could have included any number of entries, somewhere near the top had to be an action item to revamp its process for supervising the preservation and collection of electronically stored information (ESI) from company executives and employees....

Join hashtag #IGChat and learn about SharePoint governance and creating effective governance plans

Over the years, SharePoint has become a favorite among organizations as a place to share and manage content. As SharePoint adoption increases – storage, performance and on-going maintenance become major challenges, and SharePoint governance becomes essential. Archiving and eDiscovery solutions provide a key part in any effective and lasting governance strategy for SharePoint.  

In a 2012 survey conducted by Osterman research, the results showed that 39 percent of all SharePoint implementations still don’t have a governance plan. This is due to the fact that implementing governance plans can be difficult.

During this Twitter Chat we will discuss the reasons why organizations need SharePoint governance and the role of archiving and eDiscovery in governance plans. Please join Symantec’s archiving/eDiscovery and SharePoint experts, Dave Scott (@DScottyt) and...

Gartner recently released a report that spotlights the importance of using email archiving as part of an organization’s defensible deletion strategy. The report – Best Practices for Using Email Archiving to Eliminate PST and Mailbox Quota Headaches (Alan Dayley, September 21, 2012) – specifically focuses on the information retention and eDiscovery challenges associated with email storage on Microsoft Exchange and how email archiving software can help address these issues. As Gartner makes clear in its report, an archiving...

The eagerly awaited Directive from The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) was released at the end of August. In an attempt to go behind the scenes, we’ve asked the Project Management Office (PMO) and the Chief Records Officer for the NARA to respond to a few key questions. 

We know that the Presidential Mandate was the impetus for the agency self-assessments that were submitted to NARA. Now that NARA...

The struggle to stay above the rising tide of information is a constant battle for organizations. Not only are the costs and logistics associated with data storage more troubling than ever, but so are the potential legal consequences. Indeed, the news headlines are constantly filled with horror stories of jury verdicts, court judgments and unreasonable settlements involving organizations that failed to effectively address their data stockpiles.

While there are no quick or easy solutions to these problems, an ever increasing...

The times are changing rapidly as data explosion mushrooms, but the more things change the more they stay the same. In the archiving and eDiscovery world, organizations are increasingly pushing content from multiple data sources into information archives. Email was the first data source to take the plunge into the archive, but other data sources are following quickly as we increase the amount of data we create (volume) along with the types of data sources (variety). While email is still a paramount data source for litigation, internal/external...

The tears of sadness shed by those in the eDiscovery community lamenting the end of the predictive coding debate in Kleen Products may turn to tears of joy when they realize that the debate could resurface next year. Despite early reports, the Plaintiffs in Kleen did not completely roll over on their argument that defendants should be required to use what they characterize as “Content Based Advanced Analytics” (“CBAA”). To the contrary, Plaintiffs preserved their right to meet and confer with Defendants about future document productions after October 1, 2013. Not surprisingly, future document productions could rekindle the fiery...

In the 1999 Academy Award-winning movie, Being John Malkovich, there’s a scene where the eponymous character is transported into his own body via a portal and everyone around him looks exactly like him.  All the characters can say is “Malkovich” as if this single word conveys everything to everyone.

In the eDiscovery world it seems lately like predictive coding has been Malkovich-ized, in the sense that it’s the start and end of every discussion. We here at eDiscovery 2.0 are similarly unable...

Samsung Electronics and its electronic information retention practices received a strong rebuke this week in Apple v. Samsung Electronics. In this hotly contested patent dispute involving smartphones and tablet computers, the court issued an adverse inference jury instruction to sanction Samsung for the “conscious disregard” of its obligation to retain relevant emails. In so doing, the court emphasized three “golden rules” of eDiscovery that Samsung failed to observe: 1) issue a timely and comprehensive...
