One of the hottest topics in computer forensics today, electronic discovery (e-discovery) is the process by which parties involved in litigation respond to requests to produce electronically stored information (ESI). According to the 2007 Socha-Gelbmann Electronic Discovery Survey, it is now a $2 billion industry, a 60% increase from 2004, projected to double by 2009. The core reason for the explosion of e-discovery is sheer volume; evidence is digital and 75% of modern day lawsuits entail e-discovery. A recent survey reports that U.S. companies face an average of 305 pending lawsuits internationally. For large U.S. companies ($1 billion or more in revenue)that number has soared to 556 on average, with an average of 50 new disputes emerging each year for nearly half of them. To properly manage the role of digital information in an investigative or legal setting, an enterprise--whether it is a Fortune 500 company, a small accounting firm or a vast government agency--must develop an effective electronic discovery program. Since the amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which took effect in December 2006, it is even more vital that the lifecycle of electronically stored information be understood and properly managed to avoid risks and costly mistakes. This books holds the keys to success for systems administrators, information security and other IT department personnel who are charged with aiding the e-discovery process. *Comprehensive resource for corporate technologists, records managers, consultants, and legal team members to the e-discovery process, with information unavailable anywhere else *Offers a detailed understanding of key industry trends, especially the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, that are driving the adoption of e-discovery programs *Includes vital project management metrics to help monitor workflow, gauge costs and speed the process

We communicate, transact business, and socialize electronically as never before, so it's no surprise that virtually all business records are created and kept in electronic form. That electronic data resides everywhere - - on computers, Blackberries and portable devices, servers, backup tapes. When organizations and individuals reasonably anticipate litigation, they are under an obligation to preserve all relevant electronically stored information, but with the tangled web of electronic data that is stored in so many places (often subject to conflicting rules and laws about the storage of that data), it is very difficult to understand the legal obligations and implement them. E-discovery Plain & Simple discusses the world of electronically stored information and discovery through the viewpoints of two international experts in this field, an attorney and information technology consultant. This book explains technology and the legal issues involved in how we communicate and store electronic information in a "plain English" fashion, with charts, checklists, simple images and diagrams that are designed for readers with little, if any, information technology background. E-Discovery Plain & Simple is a key source of information for attorneys; corporate legal and compliance departments; small business owners and those who assist them who need to understand their legal obligations in this area and have them explained in clearly and concisely.
