What is
Electronic Discovery?

Electronic discovery (sometimes known as e-discovery, ediscovery, eDiscovery, or e-Discovery) is the electronic aspect of identifying, collecting and producing electronically stored information (ESI) in response to a request for production in a lawsuit or investigation.

Today’s Challenges

World went digital

97% of all new business information is created in electronic form

Huge amount of data

1 GB can hold up to 65.000 Microsoft Word file pages for review

Fast data generation

Employees generate 50 emails a day, or 1.2 million a year for 100 people company

Unlimited sources

Backup disks can hold up to 500 billion pages of plain text for review and analysis

Must-to-have Solution

E-discovery is becoming an increasingly important consideration for almost all organizations as a result of the enormous number of civil cases filed each year, the growing proportion of business records that are stored electronically, new statutes at all levels of government focused on electronically-stored information, and a growing body of court rulings that are making the discovery and presentation of electronic data more important.

Solution, tailored for EU

In order to satisfy e-discovery obligations, organizations should be fully aware of their current and reasonably anticipated information retention obligations, become much more proactive about how they retain and manage data (GDPR), implement appropriate technology that can archive data and allow legal holds to be implemented easily, and take the other steps necessary to minimize the risks of non-compliance with e-discovery obligations, such as DSAR.

What are Electronic Discovery Benefits?

All popular data sources are available for collection

What are main eDiscovery Benefits?

  • Make sure no files were removed intentionally or accidentally
  • Make sure all data is presented by revealing what was hidden and/or deleted
  • Examine compound files like archives, MS Office files
  • Make sure files are not altered and presented as they reveal information on files structure, creator, metadata, etc.
  • Make sure no privileged or sensitive information is not revealed until requested

Our Typical Past

Get yourself 20 or 30 years back in time when all company and/or other information was stored in paper form. Visualize room of data storage in paper form of a company operated 10, 20, 30 or even more years. Thousands and millions of documents archived and stored and your task to find one or two sheets of papers – documents, relevant to the litigation case or other request. Headache? Impossible? Time consuming? Extremely expensive? YES, we know it is!

Our Typical Present

Now get back to present and we have same data, but stored electronically (ESI), across enterprise, worldwide, simply – everywhere. Collection, identification, preservation, review and presentation – bit of a challenge. eDiscovery is here to help, save your time, money and curve much more information residing behind visible data.

Feel the Difference

By utilizing Digital Forensics technics, we’re able to extract and identify much more, than you could from simple paper form or from single digital file.

Most Required Service

Who Needs eDiscovery?

Regulatory Requests (GDPR and DSAR)

Regulatory requests have become the number one reason for eDiscovery worldwide (GDPR / DSAR). These regulatory requests for information and documentation from regulatory bodies or external auditors are unannounced and can be very disruptive. As the number of regulators grows, so does the number of requests for information.

Attorneys and Legal Supervisors

Electronic Discovery is a part of the normal discovery process. In the past, the parties involved in a legal dispute would exchange relevant information in the form of physical documents. Today, documents are increasingly generated digitally requiring a fundamental change in the discovery process.

Corporate Mergers and Acquisitions

How certain are today’s corporate buyers, sellers and their transactional lawyers that they are leveraging, analyzing and scrutinizing the right data to achieve optimal due diligence amidst mergers and acquisitions? How to handle ESI migration and integration challenge? We are here, to help!

Government and Regulatory Agencies

While much of current commentary on electronic discovery is focused on enterprises in the private sector, government agencies also routinely face demands to produce electronically stored information (ESI) in litigation, investigations and examinations.

Bankruptcy and Insolvency Cases

In the bankruptcy context, it is often difficult if not impossible, to identify early on all information that will eventually be deemed relevant, especially in a case of any complexity. With eDiscovery you will be sure you browse all data for relevance and importance, even if it was deleted or hidden with purpose.
