In any lawsuit, evidence is key. When litigation starts or can be reasonably anticipated both litigants are required by Rule 37(e) to begin preserving evidence and to map out where potentially relevant data may be stored, which will typically end in a list of individuals who may be holding the data. Most organizations try to manage this process manually, sending out e-mail messages and possibly tracking acknowledgements using spreadsheets. This presentation will discuss the benefits of automating the legal hold and preservation process and show the efficiency and defensibility gains provided by solutions on the market today.
