Social Media and E-Discovery or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Digital Ephemera
Original Broadcast Date: Thursday, May 30 2013
Like it or not, social media is now a workplace norm and presents new challenges for legal and IT teams responding to discovery requests. It is typically managed offsite by a third party, rather than under the physical control of the company. The myriad of social media sites, all with different retention policies, make it difficult to assess the size of the data and its content. Traditional collection tools can’t search, preserve and collect cloud data due to its technical architecture. And, very little case law exists on the proper handling of social media for e-discovery.
Attend this webcast to hear from industry experts on how best to navigate the discovery of social media. Discussion topics to include:
- Legal and technical considerations for social media usage and collection
- Best practices for the review of social media
- Case studies of recent matters involving social media
