Social Media & E-Discovery: Riches and Risks

Sharon D. Nelson; Esq. and John W. Simek; Sensei Enterprises Inc., President and Vice President
The use of social media evidence in electronic discovery has escalated dramatically in the last year. There are indeed “nuggets of gold” in social media evidence, but you don’t necessarily mine them without peril. There’s a way to do it correctly and a way to get yourself in trouble, perhaps by inadvertently doing something unethical or perhaps by simply not knowing how to obtain the evidence appropriately. Our experts will discuss the role of the Electronic Communications Privacy Act and the Stored Communications Act in dealing with social media evidence and they will also help you understand when to go to the social media provider and when to go to the user to procure your evidence. Case law is new in this area, but recent cases are instructive, and this session will discuss a few of the most noteworthy cases.

  • Too often, eDiscovery professionals and investigators rely on methods - like screen printing - for social media discovery that are impossible to authenticate. And now, the Courts have taken notice. With a higher bar set for defensible collection in social media, it is time for a more practical approach to social discovery.

    This webcast examines best practices of social discovery, no expert should ignore:

    - Discoverability - including social media in eDiscovery plans and the impact on eDiscovery strategies
    - Defensibility and authenticity - supporting case law that demands the use of a robust investigative platform that captures diverse types of content and metadata
    - Challenges in dealing with this new data type - understanding common challenges associated with new forms of metadata and privacy issues

    Watch this webcast to learn how and why to incorporate an investigative platform to collect, search, preserve and manage social media evidence and how to do so defensibly.

    This webinar is free, but space is limited.

  • Join us on October 23 from 1:00 to 2:00 pm Central when we present the free EDRM webinar, "Don't Let Smartphones Outsmart Your Mobile Device Discovery Needs," sponsored by AccessData.

    Description:

    So what does the ‘Smart’ in smart phone mean? What it means to enterprises and Law enforcement agencies is an ever growing treasure trove of discoverable information: your call history, contact lists, IMs, social media, voicemail, videos, chats, browsing histories, apps, GPS location data, e-mail, and images (with identifying metadata). This means that mobile devices and the data they hold are going to continue to grow in importance and being unaware of mobile e-discovery is not a good strategic position.

    Yet even with this valuable information so close many criminal and civilian investigations are threatened because there are just too many types of devices, too many mobile apps, and too many data types for some to handle. Join AccessData for an in-depth discussion on the challenges associated with collecting from these devices and how you can gain insight into the treasure trove of available information.

  • Understanding the E-Discovery Implications of Employee Status Changes Recorded: Jul 17 2014 48 mins
    The status of employees constantly changes within an organization. They go on leave, move to new positions/locations, take assignments with different business units or subsidiaries, or depart the organization altogether. Annually organizations will have 12-15% of their workforce leave their company. While employee movements are a routine element of modern business life, they take on critical significance in the context of e-discovery, where failing to properly track employees can very easily result in data spoliation and severe sanctions.

    In this webcast, e-discovery experts will discuss:
    - The legal ramifications of data that is deleted as a result of employees leaving or changing roles at an organization
    - The proper workflows/protocols to prevent employee data from being deleted
    - Importance of briefing new employees of existing legal hold obligations
    - How technology can aid in preventing unwanted data deletion (a short demonstration of Exterro Fusion® will be provided)
  • Data Collection Considerations for Litigation, Criminal & Regulatory Matters Recorded: Jun 5 2014 62 mins
    Organizations collect data related to legal matters for a myriad of reasons, from conducting internal audits to meeting litigation/regulatory obligations to responding to serious criminal allegations. Many IT professionals falsely conflate data collection with the process of creating a bitstream image – or exact bit-by-bit copy – of a targeted data repository, creating unnecessary costs for IT and legal. In reality, each collection scenario comes with a specific set of requirements that should dictate how the data is handled and ultimately extracted.

    In this webcast, legal and forensic experts will look at different types of data collections and explore the methods and technologies that support each one. They will also offer best practices for bolstering cross-departmental collaboration so that collection projects don’t place too much strain on IT resources.
  • Don’t Get Caught Empty Handed: Addressing eDiscovery with a Mobile Workforce Recorded: Jun 5 2014 51 mins
    The dramatic shift towards mobile devices in the enterprise means that everyone today is in some form a mobile worker. Along with this comes the startling statistic that nearly 30% of enterprise data is being solely stored on these devices, decreasing visibility and increasing company data risks. When an impending litigation happens, will you know how to collect and preserve your mobile data? How will you manage this data through the handoff to processing and review without compromising data integrity? With eDiscovery costs continuing to rise, getting on top of your mobile data will be key to lowering expenses and keeping ahead of data risks.

    In this session you will hear about:
    - How the new frontier of mobility is altering approaches to data governance
    - New ways to extend enterprise visibility to data, without disrupting productivity
    - The technologies and partnerships forging to address eDiscovery for mobile data

  • Accelerate and Enhance Case Strategy to Take Control of Discovery Recorded: Aug 4 2011 49 mins
    When confronted with fast-moving, large complex matters, or a series of internal investigations, the corporate legal department must move quickly to identify and collect potentially relevant information, assess the company’s position and attendant risks, and if required proceed to a cost-effective document review.
    This webinar will explore how organizations can leverage proactive governance policies and analytics-based early case assessment capabilities to take better control of discovery. Attorneys must efficiently identify, collect and process large volumes of information, slice and dice the data set to assess the merits, potential liabilities and costs of a matter, and filter the reviewable document set to minimize the cost of document review. And document review itself needs to leverage advanced technologies and methodologies to drive efficient and high-productivity review.
    In this webinar attendees will learn:
    • How to leverage information governance policies to drive efficient early case assessment
    • How a meaning-based computing platform intelligently integrates data from disparate sources to help minimize risk and reduce costs
    • How to use different analytical technologies to accelerate legal decision-making
    • How archives and legal repositories can efficiently manage large data volumes and multiple data formats while accelerating data identification and collection for fast-moving investigations
    • How an integrated, unified discovery platform can facilitate collaboration between Legal, IT, Compliance, and Records Management
  • Records Management – the Dawn of a New Era? Recorded: May 24 2011 63 mins
    You create it and store it. You manage it and retrieve it. You buy it and sell it. Information is the fuel that drives your business: it’s one of your greatest assets. But it can also be a liability. Having a records management solution in place, that spans electronic records and emails as well as physical records helps all organizations to not only reduce the risks they are exposed to, but to improve staff productivity while managing their records consistently and efficiently.


    Why does this matter? Well, not least because of the frequency with which poor information management and bad record-keeping practices are cited by regulators such as the FSA in the prosecution of their member firms. And not only that but the Information Commissioner now has the power to fine any business up to £500,000 in relation to poor information management practices – and the fines have already begun. Having a consistent, relevant and compliant records and information management infrastructure can not only mitigate these risks but also help improve process quality, increase efficiency and recognize significant cost savings at an operational level.

    But with real concerns on how to seamlessly (and consistently) integrate data from multiple sources and how to ensure that this data is integrated and embedded into business process, organizations are often confused as to how they can move towards an infrastructure-led approach to managing all corporate information.

    Attend this Webinar and you will hear:
    • How to plan and implement an RM solution that spans physical and electronic records
    • The steps to take to ensure a solution that has the ability to provide consistent, organization-wide RM
    • How other organizations have embraced RM to provide real business benefits
  • Avoiding E-Discovery Landmines Recorded: Dec 15 2010 30 mins
    The target of discovery in civil litigation now is electronic data. The failure to respond effectively to electronic discovery demands can lead to significant monetary sanctions, adverse case results, and even jail time. The failure to have one’s electronic discovery house in order can mean that efforts to respond to electronic discovery demands can be extremely burdensome and expensive as repeat fire drills. This presentation will explain the current state of the law and technology when it comes to electronic discovery and will provide guidance on how best to effectively handle electronic discovery in civil litigation to minimize expense and to optimize case results.
