This month we take a look at the pros and cons of storing data in the cloud and using predictive coding to locate responsive discovery. If you don’t yet use TranscriptPad to organize your deposition transcripts, you may be interested in the app review.
I hope you find this information useful, and, as always, let me know your feedback and also what subjects you would like to read more about.
The Dark Side of Cloud Computing
By Sharon Nelson and John Simek
We have said for many years that the cloud will generally protect a law firm’s data better than the law firm would itself. As more and more law firms adopt Microsoft Office 365, thereby moving to the cloud, we have come to the conclusion that a few words of caution are in order when law firms entrust their data to the cloud.
With huge volumes of law firm confidential data (and data from other verticals) moving to the cloud, it is no wonder that the bad guys are taking aim at the cloud. And there seems to be a shift afoot, in which the main responsibility for protecting corporate data in the cloud belongs to the cloud customer rather than the cloud provider.
In-House E-Discovery: A Six-Step Guide to Taking Control
More and more businesses are migrating at least some of their e-discovery in house, gaining greater control over their results in the process. And for good reason: In-house e-discovery can be more defensible, consistent, and affordable than relying on vendors and outside counsel. But it can be difficult to know where to begin, especially if you haven’t been directly managing any of your e-discovery processes.
This six-step guide lays out a path to help your business smoothly and successfully migrate e-discovery in house. These steps apply whether you choose a hybrid system (with some steps handled in house and others contracted out) or go whole hog and bring everything in house.
