Electronic Evidence Discovery Services for Corporations and Law Firms…
Electronic discovery is used to refine, assemble, and provide exact evidence and documents related to discovery requests.
Refine: Electronic discovery compiles the evidence collected through forensic work, by refining it into subject and dated groups.
Assemble: After the refining process, we are able to take a list of evidence keywords, provided by you and begin searching all the files for related material. Once data is refined, we can always go back through it easily if you realize you need us to compile other documents that may have evidence in them.
Provide: Now we will provide you with a complete list of all found evidence.
Without the previous steps it would be like handing the judge a book and telling him there is a lot of incriminating evidence throughout the book. However, you haven’t taken the time to find out which parts are related and you were hoping he could just use his best judgment. A judge does not have time for this, nor is it his job. With our E-discovery process, we will hand you a complete list of only the documents that have evidence pertaining to your case. This way the judge will realize the homework has been done and all evidence is legitimate to use in court.
Despite what you’ve been told, you may not need forensic recovery, just E-Discovery
What is the difference between electronic discovery and computer forensics?
Computer forensics is basically the recovery, collection, and preservation of data. This is most often used when data from a hard drive has been intentionally deleted or seizure of an electronic device is needed for evidence.
E-discovery does not deal with the same in-depth level that computer forensics does; however, they both go hand-in-hand when it comes to uncovering evidence. A lot of cases do require computer forensics experts to extract and preserve the evidence. Then an electronic discovery specialist is required to compile the documents so they can be easily accessed and reviewed for relation to the case. If you have the hard drive in question in your grasp and no damage has been done to undermine the data, then all you will need is an E-discovery specialist to consolidate and supply you with the related evidence.
So you can see, if you don’t need recovery of a litigation electronic device, then electronic discovery is the way to go. If you do suspect deletion, manipulation, back-dating or tampering of crucial evidence then a computer forensics analysis is necessary to find and retrieve the evidence.
E-discovery also helps you identify, index and organize the electronic data stored on computers throughout your organization, enabling you to manage it properly, mitigate risk and meet discovery demands for pending litigation.
Electronic Discovery is an important part of litigation.
Electronic Evidence Discovery (E-Discovery) collection gives you the winning edge by processing, discriminating, and delivering evidence from electronic media in an organized, indexed and searchable format.
