Chad Gough and Melody Haase are the featured speakers for an ISBA-hosted CLE: Litigating in an E-World: E-Discovery, Forensics, and Open Source Intelligence in Research.  You can register below.  We hope to see you on the webcast!

The internet and technology continue to grow at an astounding rate. The differences between what is now available and the tools to access it are dramatically different than even a few years ago, which means that your knowledge is likely obsolete. Join us for this intermediate to advanced look at how to use technology to find electronic discovery and produce electronically stored information for your next case. Topics include:

•    eDiscovery & Forensics in the Cloud. Recent surveys show that over 97% of businesses store data in the Cloud. Learn how to identify potential sources of Cloud data, issue  discovery requests, and implement litigation holds, as well as how to preserve, collect, filter, review, and produce Cloud data.

•    Open Source Intelligence in Legal Research. Information relevant to your case is on the Internet, usually hiding in plain sight. Business records, domain name registrations, websites, online user identities, social media posts, photos, and videos are only a search query away. Do you know how to find it? Learn how open source information can impact a broad range of matters and how to effectively identify sources of information and search for open source data.

•    Searching, Producing, and Reviewing ESI. In today’s legal matters, electronically stored information (ESI) can be found throughout a variety of sources and is extracted in a wide array of formats. Whether it’s a typical forensic image of a desktop/laptop, data from a mobile phone, or complex data from proprietary systems, learn about the options for collecting, filtering, producing, and reviewing ESI. Additional topics include: how to shrink data sets, eliminate irrelevant file types, filter searches based upon date ranges, and use keyword search options. These techniques for culling data will save you and your client’s time and money during discovery, while giving you access to the critical ESI you need.
