Today’s businesses, whether they’re huge corporations or local small traders, rely more than ever on computers and electronic devices to store and process information. However, this means new challenges in terms of complying with legal and regulatory requirements.
Because data may be spread over many different devices and formats, it can be hard to keep track of it all. Even medium-sized companies have the potential to generate gigabytes-worth of information every day in the form of text, emails, pictures, database entries and more.
When information is needed for a legal investigation, it often has to be provided quickly. Complying with requests can be expensive and take away from the main focus of the business. It’s a particular problem if systems aren’t properly documented. Poor information policy, staff changes, mergers and reorganisations can all lead to enterprises losing track of some of their data. This is where electronic discovery services come into play.
If an investigation or litigation is looming, extracting the right information can be a major issue. If it can’t be done in an effective and timely way, directors may be left liable for concealing or destroying evidence, even if it wasn’t intentional. Effective use of electronic discovery services can streamline the process and lead to issues being resolved before they come to trial, saving on legal costs.
