The processes surrounding E-Discovery are quite complicated because of the amount of data produced and stored online every day. Electronic documents are more dynamic and contain vital information such as time-date stamps, author and recipient information and file properties.
Once the data is identified, anything that is potentially relevant is placed under legal hold, meaning that it can’t be modified, deleted, erased or destroyed. This data is then extracted, indexed and placed into a database, before being professionally analysed.
