eDiscovery continues to evolve but remains costly. To target the right data prior to review, there are a range of tools and techniques available. To leverage these tools and techniques effectively, you will need to think about discovery as more than just a legal activity. You need to think of it as an information management and retrieval exercise. Read on to learn more about the key data targeting options available to you in each project phase.
We review the data targeting options you have during collection and processing phases. The right data can be targeted during the collection phase depends on the specific devices and systems you are collecting from. Once materials are collected and you are ready to process the data, another range of data targeting options is available to you. In addition to standard removal of known system files, duplicate files and messages, there are several filtering options you can dive into.
During early case assessment (ECA), case teams have a powerful set of tools at their disposal for data targeting prior to review. Your goal should be to understand the specifics of the options for source systems and discovery tools so you can assess what will be most useful in each specific project and how aggressive you should be in your overall targeting efforts. Read on to learn more about data targeting tools that can be used prior to review.
