On-site e-Discovery Training

Just as we are enthusiastic about practicing computer forensics and e-Discovery, we also love sharing our knowledge and helping you become more successful at what you do. Our e-Discovery training program covers the strategic and technical aspects of the e-Discovery process and includes hands-on exercises where you can practice with data and tools and work through real world scenarios. Some of the learning objectives of our e-Discovery training are:

  • What is electronically stored information (ESI), and what are the most common sources of ESI?
  • What you should know before “meet and confer” – also known as the Rule 26(f) conference.
  • How should ESI be preserved, collected and handled?
  • How is electronic data stored on computer systems? How do digital forensic examiners recover deleted data?
  • What is metadata? What is the significance of certain metadata fields found in electronic evidence?
  • What are the most common e-mail systems? What are their effects on e-Discovery and computer forensics?
  • What are your options for narrowing the data set down to responsive documents? (i.e. search and culling)
  • What is e-Discovery processing? What are some of the key decision you need to make before the e-Discovery processing stage?
  • What are the commonly used forms of ESI productions? What are the benefits and drawbacks of each?
