NFPA Webinar - Digital Evidence: Find It, Harvest It and Use It - July 25, 2013

About the Webinar

Digital evidence is quickly becoming the number one source of evidence in discovery.  As more corporations, government agencies and businesses in general create the majority of their communications and business information electronically, the legal profession has to learn to adjust and utilize this information.  Business Week, in its annual business survey, revealed that 95% of all the information created by businesses, regardless of size, is in electronic form.

Individuals are no different.  It is estimated that since 2010, we sent more email, text messages and tweets and Facebooked more than we used the phone.  Some studies suggest even more than we verbally communicated.

The judiciary is keenly aware of this, and among other things, has amended the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) to reflect this paradigm shift in how legal professionals handle this abundant electronic evidence.

There is plenty of information out there on the FRCP, pre-discovery planning and how to produce digital evidence, and many vendors that do so, but that’s only the tip of the iceberg.  The real trials and tribulations of dealing with digital evidence lie in understanding how to identify relevant ESI, where it’s located, how to harvest it, and how to effectively use it.  And that’s what we will touch on today.
