eTERA Consulting, a professional services firm specializing in providing data management solutions to the AmLaw 100 and Fortune 500 companies, today announced a complimentary web seminar focused on the E-Discovery Challenges of Microsoft SharePoint deployments. Speakers for the web seminar will include eTERA Consulting’s John Rubens, Managing Director of Corporate Analysis and Dawson West, Senior Discovery Consultant. The web seminar is part of eTERA Consulting’s ongoing series of training and education initiatives to help clients stay abreast of critical issues surrounding electronic discovery and electronically stored information (“ESI”).

In this complimentary webinar, attendees will learn about:

  • SharePoint’s expanding presence within organizations
  • How SharePoint’s increasing social media capabilities challenge standard preservation and forensic collection
  • Best practices and methods for collection and preservation of SharePoint and other complex content management systems
  • Understanding the SharePoint environment through eTERA Consulting’s Early Information Assessment service for SharePoint

“The enormous growth of SharePoint deployments in recent years has dramatically increased the cost and complexity of E-Discovery,” said eTERA’s John Rubens. Corporate counsel, legal and IT professionals are increasingly challenged with addressing the complex issues of E-Discovery as Microsoft SharePoint has moved far beyond simple collaboration.

With SharePoint 2010, significant social media architecture capabilities make the file sharing and collaboration system far more dynamic than ever before. SharePoint is now used as a portal for wikis, blogs and discussion boards. Facebook Like user profiles associated with personal sites are owned and managed by users themselves. This very complex environment carries the potential for flawed E-Discovery processes that risk resulting in undesirable litigation outcomes.”

The complimentary web seminar will take place on Wednesday, November 30 at 11:00 am EST. To reserve a web seminar seat now, please go to:
