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...

Long time readers of the eDiscovery 2.0 blog know we like to take advantage of every opportunity we have to discuss Charlie Sheen and eDiscovery.  While Charlie Sheen’s antics may have died down, the evolution and discussion of e-Discovery technology continues unabated. Thanks to Sharon Nelson and a recent blog post on her ride the lightning site, we’ve decided that there is no way we can pass up the...

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 eDiscovery craze that has gripped the U.S. legal system over the past decade has been ignored in much of Europe. This is due in large part to Europe’s discovery rules, which generally forbid categorical document requests and other broad discovery procedures authorized in the U.S. by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP). Without the impetus created by eDiscovery demands, many companies operating in Europe may feel insulated from the need to implement an eDiscovery-oriented defensible deletion strategy. Yet the need for such a strategy – focused on reducing the costs...

Predictive coding is commonly viewed as a promising technology with great potential to ease the time and monetary burden of the eDiscovery process. As organizations start to implement predictive coding more frequently, many are wondering how best to introduce it into their litigation support planning.

Many companies have been in legal situations where they wished for a crystal ball to show exactly what they would need to ensure litigation ran smoothly. While this of course isn’t possible, there is a way for organizations to efficiently identify and review...

The headline-grabbing news this week regarding Twitter facing possible contempt sanctions is an important reminder that organizations should consider developing a strategy for addressing social media governance. In criminal proceedings against protesters involved in the Occupy Wall Street movement, a New York state court ordered Twitter several weeks ago to turn over various tweets that a protester deleted from his twitter feed relating to the movement’s...
