Effective information governance strategy and modern eDiscovery tools enable agile response to eDiscovery requests—in a new article from Messaging Architects

Proactive eDiscovery
Organizations that have implemented the best practices of proactive eDiscovery can respond to eDiscovery requests quickly while minimizing costs incurred through data collection and review.

Messaging Architects, an eMazzanti Technologies Company and information governance consultant, discusses the challenges and benefits of proactive eDiscovery in a new article on the Messaging Architects website.

The informative article asserts that masses of redundant and obsolete data quickly drive up eDiscovery costs. The author then discusses how an effective information governance strategy and modern eDiscovery tools enable an agile response to eDiscovery requests. The benefits of such a proactive approach include reduced costs, early case assessment and improved business decision making.

“Envision an organization that has implemented the best practices of proactive eDiscovery. Rather than scrambling to find data when a lawsuit looms, they have followed comprehensive information governance strategies,” stated Greg Smith, Vice President of Services Delivery at Messaging Architects. “Thus, they can respond to eDiscovery requests quickly while minimizing costs incurred through data collection and review.”

Below are a few excerpts from the article, “Reduce Costs and Respond Quickly with Proactive eDiscovery.

“Companies that fail to implement adequate retention and disposal policies may find themselves with too much information. In eDiscovery, the majority of costs occur during review, where fees are typically assessed per gigabyte of data to be analyzed. Masses of redundant and obsolete data quickly drive up costs.”

Minimize Challenges with Information Governance

“Instead of reacting in a frenzy to requests for eDiscovery, smart organizations practice information governance, the foundation of proactive eDiscovery. An effective information governance strategy addresses issues such as:”

  • “Data categorization and storage – Know where your data resides and who owns it. Classify and organize data so that you can find it quickly.”
  • “Data retention and deletion – Understand the data compliance regulations for your industry and set retention policies accordingly.”

Office 365 eDiscovery Tools

“Organizations that have completed Office 365 migration can use Microsoft’s built-in tools to help them conduct proactive eDiscovery. Through the Office 365 Security and Compliance Center, for example, administrators can retrieve data based on keywords, custodians and other specifications.”

The Right Resources at the Right Time

According to the author, the best time to prepare for litigation is now, long before a court order appears. The consultants and project managers at Messaging Architects can help organizations develop sound information governance. And with deep knowledge of Office 365 and other pertinent technologies, they can assist business leaders in tapping into the benefits of proactive eDiscovery.
