How to Manage Data Security During eDiscovery IV
Discovery Management Digest – Q1 2013
In this 4th of a four-part series, we examine the challenges that eDiscovery poses to data security. In the midst of litigation, lawyers not only need to keep the data secure, they need to make sure no aspect of it is altered and that the chain of custody remains completely unbroken. Since the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure are quiet about data security standards during discovery, attorneys need to look to other experts and industries for guidance about techniques and practices that are proven and defensible.
In parts 1-3 in our series on data security, we looked at security standards, best practices and the difference between IT and legal perspectives on data security.
