  • Educational Webinar
    • The Next Frontier: Discovery from Collaboration Tools – For several years now, use of the workplace collaboration and messaging tools has been growing exponentially, first augmenting, and then starting to supplant email usage within many organizations. With such widespread usage, cloud-based collaboration tools like Slack and Teams have started to become a common source for the discovery of relevant materials.  So, just what sorts of materials are in these platforms?  How can those materials be preserved and collected?  What special challenges do these platforms and their data present?  In this free, one-hour educational webinar, XDD Director of Forensics Mike Gutierrez discusses the answers to these questions and others to provide eDiscovery practitioners with the knowledge they need to address these sources in their own eDiscovery matters.

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