Are you forgetting about mobile devices and social media in your e-discovery strategy?

Are you forgetting about mobile devices and social media in your e-discovery strategy?

How things have changed in just a short period of time. It was only a few years ago that organizations only needed to worry about doing e-Discovery on email systems, PST Files, SharePoint repositories or file systems.  

Now, with mobile devices accessing corporate blogs, web sites and posting on various social media sites like facebook, linkedin, twitter and google plus, this is now part of any organizations corporate culture. This is resulting in IT having to include mobile devices, web and social media platforms in its e-Discovery request procedures as well as having it be part of their e-Discovery strategy.  According to Caitlin Murphy at CMSWire, “devices can hold a truly staggering amount and variety of data” and they can pose significant risk to any organization.

The inclusion of these platforms in your organizations e-Discovery strategy is a must,  in order to reduce your organizations risk.  You need to have effective tools to assist in the e-Discovery processes and protect your organization during litigation. The challenge however, is finding good quality and cost effective utilities which will assist in this process. As the market grows, there will be more utilities being created. There are utilities now which incorporate searching of websites and social media platforms as well as mobile devices. But finding these tools which will do a proper job and reduce the risks associated in your organizations “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) policies, is often time very consuming and  costly.
