Vancouver – The Vancouver chapter of Wired Woman is proud to present an evening seminar on the importance of data analysis in a variety of situations.
Recently, the volume of data produced by business operations has grown dramatically, primarily because of the increase in email and other computer information systems. When these business operations because the subject of litigation, arbitration or investigation, the process of gathering, analyzing and managing these potentially massive volumes of data presents a significant challenge. This can be extremely costly, time consuming and, if not done properly, can expose the organization to significant litigation (and reputation) risks. Understanding the technical aspects and strategies involved in eDiscovery can reduce a company’s financial risks and help protect their reputation.
This presentation will focus on:
What eDiscovery is, including the phases and challenges involved
Where electronic evidence can be found
The technical aspects of forensic data capturing
Best practices to keep in mind
The future of eDiscovery
