Employee separation commonly involves investigations, litigation, and eDiscovery. Cases can rely heavily on electronic evidence, so Dr. Gavin W. Manes of Avansic and Craig Ball of Ball in Your Court discussed what that looks like both from the employer and from the employee side. They spoke about the initial stages of investigations, preservation of data, location of data sources, and the review of that data for information relevant to the case.
To paraphrase Ringo Starr (and Joe Cocker), we all get by with a little help from our friends. For the various eDiscovery and cybersecurity challenges we face today, those “friends” may be the outsource providers that enable your organization to effectively address those challenges.
Countless solutions are moving to the cloud, especially since the pandemic forced so many into remote and hybrid working arrangements. But how have those trends impacted eDiscovery? Is it moving to the cloud as well? If so, what are the developments influencing that shift?
Gavin focused on two topics for the discussion:
- Collection of data from mobile devices, and
- Avansic’s new eDiscovery Services Assessment.
How Legal Teams are Approaching Self-Service eDiscovery
Ari Kaplan spoke with Dr. Gavin Manes, founder and CEO of Avansic, a provider of eDiscovery and digital forensics services, about the primary activities and technologies incorporated into eDiscovery projects, where litigants are facing the most challenging eDiscovery issues, how legal teams are approaching self-service eDiscovery, and the role of forensics in modern discovery.
eDiscovery and forensics share the goal of locating digital evidence to support the facts of an investigation or discovery. While eDiscovery is content-based, forensics is more dependent on context. However, there are forensic techniques you can integrate into everyday eDiscovery processing to improve efficiency and accuracy.
Litigation support and eDiscovery professionals are always looking for ways to improve their workflow and results and ensure they are taking the most effective approach on a matter. With cost-effective control of the technology and process you can take that to a new level.
A digital forensics investigation can make an impactful difference in an otherwise “routine” eDiscovery document review. In this webinar we look at top cases where forensics went beyond general eDiscovery practices to shine a light on advanced, hard-to-find, or less obvious case-related information.
This presentation covers some of the capabilities of digital forensics - how forensics can authenticate documents and track user activity, what can be found in carved, deleted, and orphaned data, and document review. Dr. Manes also discusses social media preservation and cloud security issues.
The presenter for this event is Dr. Gavin W Manes.
Dr. Gavin Manes, Avansic’s CEO, along with Joel Sallee (Lead Forensics Investigator and Laboratory Manager) present on the authentication of digital evidence, including a discussion of image, email, and text authenticity. The presenters discuss several real-world case studies from Avansic's experience.
