  • XDD’s First Chair Podcast
    • Episode 07: Liz Letak on Recent Social Media Cases – Each month, XDD’s First Chair podcast invites one or more guest experts to sit down with XDD Director of Education Matthew Verga, JD, for a 20-30 minute conversation about a single, important eDiscovery topic. In our seventh episode, XDD Managing Director of Consulting Services Liz Letak discusses a sampling of recent social media discovery cases and the lessons practitioners can learn from them.
  • Educational Webinar
    • It’s Elementary: Conducting Effective Forensic Investigations – How effective are your forensic investigations? With a plan that involves the right mix of people, processes and tools, forensic investigations can be a valuable tool, but without one, they can become a costly distraction.  In this free, one-hour educational webinar XDD Solutions Architect Curtis Collette and XDD Director of Digital Forensics Yaniv Schiff cover common investigation scenarios and tips for being prepared when the need arises – rather than simply reacting to circumstances.

As always, we welcome your input regarding future topics for our webinars, articles, and white papers.  Share your interests with us here.
