Electronic Discovery for System Administrators
As the Federal Rules of Evidence have evolved over the last several years, and as the volume of information in digital format has overtaken traditional printed media, electronic discovery had become more important than traditional paper-based discovery in litigation. While vendors can help with production, system administrators play a key role in the acquisition and production of Electronically Stored Information (ESI).
This presentation is designed to present an overview of the discovery process, explain how it differs from traditional computer forensics, and offer tips for administrators and managers to better assist in the production of ESI in the event of litigation (and hopefully to reduce the costs associated with production).
