The “e” in eDiscovery doesn’t stand for “easy” and some experts (like the video nearby) argue that eDiscovery is greater challenge for IT than it is for lawyers. In its simple terms, eDiscovery is short hand for the process of turning unstructured data – sometimes staggering amounts of it – into something we can understand.
YouTube is filled with resources on eDiscovery, ranging from webinar recordings to interviews conducted at conferences. We recently stumbled upon this a video titled “What Every Businessperson Should Know About E-Discovery” and thought it fitting for this week’s Friday Share.
The video was uploaded in 2009, according to the date stamp, but the simple explanation, which follows the EDRM model, is still relevant. The nine-minute video is broken into three parts with an introduction, a hypothetical case study for context and a short interview with Daniel Estrada, who at the time of the interview, appears to have managed an IT consulting business focused on eDiscovery.
The video full video is a quick run through and it’s useful for anyone – lawyers, legal pros or even clients – getting their arms around eDiscovery.
