“Information is the oil of the 21st century” and organizations are amassing and storing more than ever before. According to the Gartner group, data is growing 40-60 percent year-over-year. For enterprises to successfully manage this exponential growth of information, they must first understand what data they have across the enterprise and how it will affect their operations. Gaining that knowledge is the first step toward developing an information governance (IG) strategy that will extract more value from data and minimize the costs and risks associated with managing it.
If you work in the US, you may have noticed a few new (smaller) faces on your commute this morning. No, you’re not in some Freaky Friday situation—today is Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, a national holiday that lets kids experience first-hand a day in the life of a grownup.
Here at kCura, we’ve got rugrats roaming the halls and partaking in fun and educational activities (and very little software development, we promise). Unlike last year, though, we won’t interrupt them to learn what they think their mom or dad does all day.
Why not bring it all together?
Developing your written case summary as a Microsoft Word or Google document and keeping it up to date is counterproductive. It’s like shooting a movie while you’re writing the script. And it’s why we created Relativity Fact Manager.
There are many tools available to help you create accurate and healthy searches. Check out these most common searching snafus and their best methods of prevention to accelerate your review.
During the debates over the 2015 e-discovery amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, one of the biggest points of contention was the change in the sanctions provisions of Fed. R. Civ. P. 37(e).
However, as we’ve discussed before, judges have methods other than Rule 37(e) to sanction bad behavior in discovery. In addition to tools such as Rule 37(b)(2), federal judges can sanction parties under their so-called “inherent authority.”
Originally published more than a year ago, this post is a helpful look at one of the easiest wins in all of e-discovery analytics. We've updated it to reflect the current capabilities of Relativity, and are republishing it to give you another look.
According to the Radicati Group, the average businessperson sends 36 emails per day. It may not sound like much, but if you do the math, it means a single employee creates nearly 10,000 emails per year (more if they work weekends).
With these numbers, it’s no wonder email is the dominant data form in e-discovery. Even in cases involving only a few custodians, you’re looking at a data set filled with thousands of emails, one for every time your custodian hits send.
With this unique set of challenges, it’s important to connect with others who are in the same boat.
While there are countless legal professional organizations to connect lawyers with one another, there are limited options for seeking advice and knowledge from other in-house counsel. We’ve compiled a few networking groups and opportunities specifically for you. Each offering differs, so take a look to find out which groups are best for your needs.
So, after bringing you a list of reading recommendations and documentaries for the e-discovery enthusiast, we thought we’d help you spice up your next review project with a killer playlist. Here are some of the tunes that speak to our team—and others in the Relativity community—as they continue to improve their work in this field.
To get to the heart of how employees understand data privacy and how their online behavior at work can impact it, kCura recently commissioned a survey conducted by Harris Poll among 1,013 US adults age 18 and older who were employed full-time or part-time, working in a traditional office setting for at least 50 percent of the time, and are not freelancers (referred to as “employees” throughout).
Ahead of Relativity Fest London, here are four topics on the minds of UK e-disclosure experts in our community as they keep up with this evolving landscape, as well as a few tips on how you can learn more about each subject.
