How Cloud Based Solutions are Changing the Way We Approach Discovery and Disclosure Obligations
Cloud Based Solutions to Discovery Obligations
Discovery and data interrogation/disclosure can be a virtual minefield in Europe. In every circumstance, varying jurisdictional requirements and protections have to be addressed before information can be processed or moved from its native environment. From attorney-client privilege and personal privacy to blocking statutes and data protection regulations, the wholesale collection of electronically stored information (ESI) needs to be run through a litany of checks and balances before reaching the hands of legal counsel or the requesting authorities.
The purpose of this article is to:
- Explore emerging solutions to the data volume conundrum
- Consider how emerging solutions relate to regulatory investigations
- Identify varying issues associated with data portability
- Look for options that enable more flexibility in deployment, effecting both time and cost.
The Standard Approach to Data Analysis
In its simplest form, data analysis follows this very high-level road map.
- Data identification
Each phase requires a multitude of technologies to drive one stage to the next, and each phase is necessary to provide the user essential information to protect subject rights.
