Effective information and records management systems are essential for a business to run efficiently and are often needed to fulfil legal or regulatory requirements. When requested, organisations are typically required to respond with targeted information in an extremely short time-frame. Such a request can cost copious amounts of money to prepare at the last minute, which could otherwise be avoided.
Today, data is spread across multiple formats including text, scans, audio, video, databases, emails and so on. A mid-size company will typically generate gigabytes of data in any given day. This information is often lost track of, as a result of poor information management policies, staff changes, mergers and acquisitions, internal restructuring or plain and simple carelessness.
Should your organisation become the subject of litigation or investigation, collating and presenting such information can be challenging and if not presented appropriately, may leave Directors liable for concealing, altering or destroying relevant evidence, whether intentional or not.
Our eDiscovery specialists are available to help confirm what information is required, when and for whom. We work with clients to produce relevant evidence in an efficient and cost-effective manner, subject to any information management policies in place and in accordance with any subpoenas issued. Elvidence’s team is particularly skilled at collating large amounts of information from a variety of mediums, across multiple IT servers and geographically dispersed.
We follow each element of the industry-standard Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM), and use our investigative experience, coupled with forensic technology to reduce costs and efficiently locate any relevant evidence required. It is this process that enables our clients to form a robust legal defence strategy.
In case your organisation doesn’t have an information management structure in place, our consultants will assist in developing one and can work with you to ensure you are well prepared for any future eDiscovery requirements.
