eDiscovery & Forensics in the Cloud


Why is ESI Discovery (eDiscovery) so critical in employment cases? Almost everything is electronically stored, and the data can show what did or didn’t happen. Often data originates or is stored in multiple locations, and data can be used in more ways than you think.

Cloud data is completely discoverable, and it’s essential to know all the rules of evidence that apply.

Topics include:

  • What is “The Cloud”?
  • Collection and preserving cloud data
  • The importance and rules of electronic discovery
